  • Servers: The total number of servers and the number of servers in "on" status.

You can personalize this list as shown in the Customizing Lists and Data Export article.

The color of the text in the row can change according to the following states:

  • Red: when according to VMM its overall state is different from "Ok".
  • Orange: when any of the physical disks of the appliance is in a state other than OK or DORMANT.

Up to the 4.7 version, this view allows you to perform a sync infrastructure and update all the appliances infrastructure in VDI Manager. From version 4.7, this feature is available in the VCC Roles Overview view.  

This will generate a job that will follow in the jobs section.

From version 4.7 onwards the synchronize infrastructure is available in the VCC Roles overview view.

VDI Appliance detail

The VDI Appliance detail shows important data about the selected VDI Appliance and allows to perform some actions on items stored in the appliance.

In the general section, you can see general information about the appliance, perform a power action, or update the VDIClient Settings.

On the other hand, you must fill the paths where the desktop templates, the application templates, and the servers will be stored.

  • Hyper-V

  • VMware

  • Citrix Hypervisor
    • Fill the paths with the UUID from the storage

In case the storage depends on the VLAN assigned in the tenant, the value [TenantNetworkStorage] must be entered and Flexxible|SUITE will obtain the hosting units linked to the tenant's VLAN and will use its storage.


The performance graphs provide three fundamental data in the diagnosis of problems:

  • CPU use:  Very useful to identify defects in the sizing of the appliance.
  • Memory use:  Same as before.
  • Ethernet: The network traffic is a very useful graph to detect anomalous behavior in the appliance.
