Simply put, this thing saves you a whole days work from tweaking all of your “golden images” and does it in a few simple steps. Once installed you will have two desktop shortcuts, one is for using the tool remotely, and the other is to run the tool locally. Once you have the parameters the way you want them click the “Optimize” button to apply those settings to the OS. So easy!
The VMware OS Optimization Tool helps optimize Windows 7 desktops for use with VMware Horizon View. The optimization tool includes customizable templates to enable or disable Windows system services and features, per VMware recommendations and best practices, across multiple systems. Since most Windows system services are enabled by default, the optimization tool can be used to easily disable unnecessary services and features to improve performance.
You can perform the following actions using the VMware OS Optimization Tool:
- Viewing History
- Managing Template
Also included is the Remote OS Optimization Tool, which uses the same functionality as the Optimization Tool, but connects to a remote VMware View broker so that remote parent and template VMs can be enumerated and optimized.
Requires Windows 7 and .Net framework.
