When you disable a desktop pool, the pool is no longer presented to users and pool provisioning is stopped. Users have no access to the pool. After you disable a pool, you can enable it again.

You can disable a pool to prevent users from accessing their desktops while you prepare the desktops for use. If a pool is no longer needed, you can use the disable feature to withdraw the pool from active use without having to delete the pool definition from View Manager.


In View Administrator, click Inventory > Pools.


Select a desktop pool and change the status of the pool.



Disable the pool

Click Status > Disable Pool.

Enable the pool

Click Status > Enable Pool.


Click OK.
