VMware View 5.x – Reset/Refresh/Rebalance/Recompose

Reset

  • Shuts down the desktop and restarts the session. The shutdown/logoff/disconnect is non-graceful

Refresh

  • Restores the OS disk to it’s original state and size
  • Does not effect View Composer persistent disks

Rebalance

  • Evenly redistributes linked-clone desktops among available datastores.
  • A rebalance operation also refreshed the linked clones

Recompose

  • Simultaneously updates all the linked clone desktops anchored to a parent virtual machine.
  • It is similar to a refresh operation, however a recompose allows you to choose a new snapshot within the existing parent virtual machine, or a completely new parent virtual machine.
