The VMware Workspace Portal Installation and Configuration Guide leads you through the installation and configuration process for the Workspace appliance. When the installation is finished, you can use VMware Workspace™ Portal to entitle users to managed multi-device access to your organization's applications, including Windows applications, software as a service (SaaS) applications, and View desktops.

This information is intended for system and functional administrators of VMware Workspace™ Portal. The information is written for experienced Windows and Linux system administrators who are familiar with VMware technologies, particularly vCenter™, ESX™, vSphere®, and View™, networking concepts, Active Directory servers, Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP), and NTP servers. SUSE Linux 11 is the underlying operating system for the virtual appliance. Knowledge of other technologies, such as VMware ThinApp®, RSA SecurID, and Active Directory is helpful if you plan to implement those features.
