It is important to ensure each component of the VMware View environment is functioning properly. Check the Event Viewer on the Windows Server for error messages related to the installation. In addition, make sure that the services start properly.
At this point, you have all the major infrastructure pieces of the VMware View environment up and running. You need to create virtual machines and tune them for optimal performance. Before you do, though, you should look at one other important piece of the VMware View platform: application virtualization. When you understand the benefit of application virtualization, you can integrate it into your View desktops. We discuss application virtualization next in Chapter 4, “Application Virtualization,” and then put all the pieces together in Chapter 5, “Building Your Virtual Desktop.”
