To create a desktop group - Citrix

Before creating a desktop group, understand the different machine types available to you, and note the following:

You can only create a desktop group if at least one machine remains unused in the catalog you select

You cannot use a machine in more than one desktop group

You can create desktop groups from multiple catalogs with the same machine type

You cannot create mixed desktop groups from catalogs with multiple machine types

In Desktop Studio, select the Assignments node in the left pane and click Create desktop group.

On the Catalog page, select a catalog for this desktop group, and enter the number of machines the group will consume from the catalog.

Tip: If machine administrators include the total number of machines in a catalog's description, this appears on the Catalog page. Assignment administrators can use the number in conjunction with their selections in the wizard to ensure sufficient machines are available for the desktop group.

On the Users page, add the users or user groups that can access the desktops, and enter the number of desktops available to each user. You can select user groups by browsing or entering a list of Active Directory users and groups each separated by a semicolon. For private desktop groups, you can import user data from a file after you create the group.

This page is displayed only if the group is based on pooled - static, existing, or physical machines and they have not already been allocated accounts.

On the Machine allocation page, confirm the mapping of machines to users for any machines that were allocated when the catalog was created.

On the Delegation page, select the XenDesktop administrators who will manage this desktop group. All XenDesktop administrators, including help desk administrators, are displayed.

On the Summary page, check all details, and enter a name that users see and a name that administrators see.
