AZ-1005 | Configuring Azure Virtual Desktop for the Enterprise


This abbreviated one-day course teaches Azure administrators how to plan, deliver, and manage virtual desktop experiences and remote apps, for any device, on Azure. Summarized lessons include implementing and managing networking for Azure Virtual Desktop, configuring host pools and session hosts, creating session host images, implementing, and managing FSLogix, monitoring Azure Virtual Desktop performance and health, and automating Azure Virtual Desktop management tasks. Students will learn through a mix of condensed demonstrations deploying virtual desktop experiences on Azure Virtual Desktop and running in multi-session virtual environments. This course assumes familiarity with Azure Virtual Desktop, including virtualization, networking, identity, storage, backup and restore, and disaster recovery. Students should have knowledge of on-premises virtual desktop infrastructure technologies as they relate to migrating to Azure Virtual Desktop. Students are expected to have used tools common to the Azure environment, such as the Azure PowerShell and Cloud Shell.


Audience profile

Students for AZ-1005: Configuring Azure Virtual Desktop for the Enterprise are interested in delivering applications on Azure Virtual Desktop and optimizing them to run in multi-session virtual environments. As an Azure Virtual Desktop administrator, you will closely with the Azure Administrators and Architects, along with Microsoft 365 Administrators. Azure Virtual Desktop administrator responsibilities include planning, deploying, packaging, updating, and maintaining the Azure Virtual Desktop infrastructure.


Outline course

  • Module 1: Azure Virtual Desktop Architecture

Azure Virtual Desktop manages the infrastructure and brokering components, while customers manage their own desktop host virtual machines (VMs) and clients. Microsoft manages the Remote Connection Gateway, and Connection Broker services as part of Azure.

  • Module 2: Design the Azure Virtual Desktop architecture

Azure Virtual Desktop design requires that you assess network capacity and speed requirements, select a load-balancing method for your Azure Virtual Desktop deployment, and choose the right Windows Desktop client.

  • Module 3: Design for user identities and profiles

Your users require access to those applications both on-premises and in the cloud. You use the Remote Desktop client for Windows Desktop to access Windows apps and desktops remotely from a different Windows device.

  • Module 4: Implement and manage networking for Azure Virtual Desktop

See how to monitor and repair health of their Azure Virtual Desktop including virtual machines, virtual networks, application gateways, and load balancers.

  • Module 5: Implement and manage storage for Azure Virtual Desktop

FSLogix roams profiles in remote computing environments, such as Azure Virtual Desktop. You set up a FSLogix profile container share for a host pool using a virtual machine-based file share.

  • Module 6: Create and configure host pools and session hosts for Azure Virtual Desktop

See how to configure the assignment type of a personal desktop host pool to adjust your Azure Virtual Desktop environment to better suit your needs.

  • Module 7: Create and manage session host image for Azure Virtual Desktop

A Shared Image Gallery simplifies custom image sharing across your organization. Custom images can be used to bootstrap deployment tasks like preloading applications, application configurations, and other OS configurations.

  • Module 8: Manage access for Azure Virtual Desktop

Azure Virtual Desktop uses Azure role-based access controls (RBAC) to assign roles to users and admins. Azure Virtual Desktop has additional roles that let you separate management roles for host pools, app groups, and workspaces.

  • Module 9: Manage security for Azure Virtual Desktop

The Windows client for Azure Virtual Desktop integrates Azure Virtual Desktop on local machines. You’ll learn the critical actions for keeping your users safe.

  • Module 10: Implement and manage FSLogix

A user profile contains data elements about a user information like desktop settings, persistent network connections, and application settings.

  • Module 11: Configure user experience settings

Persistent virtual desktops save the operating system state in between reboots. Virtual desktop provides users easy and seamless access to their assigned VMs, often with a single sign-on solution.

  • Module 12: Install and configure apps on a session host

MSIX app attach is a way to deliver MSIX applications to both physical and virtual machines. MSIX app attach is different from regular MSIX because it’s specifically for Azure Virtual Desktop.

  • Module 13: Plan for disaster recovery

You can replicate your virtual machines (VMs) to the secondary location for Azure Virtual Desktop. You use Azure Site Recovery to manage replicating VMs in other Azure locations.

  • Module 14: Automate Azure Virtual Desktop management tasks

Reduce Azure Virtual Desktop deployment costs by scaling virtual machines (VMs). This means shutting down and deallocating session host VMs during off-peak usage hours, then turning them back on and reallocating them during peak hours.

  • Module 15: Monitor and manage performance and health

For Azure Virtual Desktop issues, check Azure Advisor first. Azure Advisor will give you directions for how to solve the problem, or at least point you towards a resource that can help.
