Dell WMS – Upgrade

Release date: May 20th 2021

Welcome to my Dell Wyse Management Studio section. The latest version of Dell Wyse Management suite was available for download on May 17th. 2021. In this section I will describe how I upgraded from 3.1.0 to 3.2.1. This version is a Hotfix version which contains a number of fixes to known issues. The release notes for the Dell VMS versions are available here: Dell Wyse Management Suite Version 3.x Release Notes I strongly recommend reading the release notes before continuing the upgrade-process. It is also a best practice to have a valid backup done up front..

Before I start the upgrade I download the installation media from Dell here: Dell Wyse Management Suite Download

Before I continue, I also verify that my upgrade path is supported by Dell.

In Control Panel on my WMS server I can see that I have the 3.1.0.559 version installed.

I locate the installer I downloaded above and launch the executable. This opens the VMS Installer’s welcome screen, Next…

In the next screen I accept the EULA, Next…

I wont be using Teradici EM SDK, Next…

At this point in the upgrade, it is possible to change the Secure MQTT port, this I wont change, I leave the Secure MQTT port as is, Next…

I click Next to complete the upgrade…

Once the upgrade-wizard finishes, I click Launch to log into Dell VMS and verify that all my settings etc. is present after the upgrade. I also launch Control Panel and verify my newly installed version.

This completes my painless upgrade of Dell Wyse Management Suite. As always, when doing upgrades, I recommend having valid backups and checking upgrade compability before starting the upgrade. Stay tuned and come back for more sessions about this great software from Dell…
