VMware OS Optimization Tool for use with VMware Horizon View
I recently completed a Horizon View deployment in my Home Lab as I wanted to review the various deployment types. I come across this tool via the VMware Flings website (https://labs.vmware.com/flings) and thought it was worth a mention as I found it very useful when creating my Template machines. The team have included templates for various different operating systems such as Windows Server 2008 – 2012 R2 and Windows 7-10.
It’s very simple to use, you need to download the client from the following fling page https://labs.vmware.com/flings/vmware-os-optimization-tool
You can then run the installer, It will automatically optimize your system and advise on the recommended changes as per the inbuilt templates. You can modify these if you require alternative settings.
When you are ready, select optimize and It will complete the changes. Reboot the VM and your template VM will be optimized!
