So yesterday, VMware released Horizon Workspace 1.5. HUGE improvement over the GA release… Holey smokes. Any further tutorials will reference this version.
Anyways, more to the point. In this post I will demonstrate how to do a base configuration of Horizon Workspace using an internal Microsoft Certificate Authority with Nginx as a frontend. This setup is only acceptable for setting up workspace in a lab environment, since in a production environment you’ll need a trusted third party cert. Doing this in a lab environment is important because it will allow you to set up and test every feature you’ll be using in a production environment.
- Microsoft Active Directory Certificate Services
- Linux Machine running Nginx
- Horizon Workspace 1.5 Downloaded and installed with no configuration.
- We’ll be using the workspace FQDN of hzn.test.in (This obviously assumes the domain of test.in)
