Connecting to Multiple VMware Horizon Desktop

Recently been asked how can you connect to multiple Horizon Desktops from an endpoint.  Just to get things right there are just two ways depending where your virtual desktops are at.

Scenario 1
Multiple virtual desktops from the same connection server but in different desktop pools.

With Horizon Client, you will be able to connect multiple virtual desktops you are entitled to from just single instance whether on Mac of Windows as the Horizon Client window will be left open for you to select other virtual desktops to connect.

Scenario 2
Mutiple virtual desktops from different connection servers.

In this case, you will need to launch another instance of Horizon Client to connect to every connection server.  In Windows, this is easily done however on Mac, this might be a challenge.  You can of cause run a commend as written by this author here, to run another instance on Mac via Terminal window and keep it on the dock so you get two instance anytime you need it.
