VMware App Volumes – Upgrade Manager to v. 2103

Release date: April 11th 2021

Welcome to my VMware App Volumes series. In this session I will describe the steps I took to upgrade my App Volumes Manager. My initial installation of VMware App Volumes was done with v. 2.14. I have since upgraded several times. In this session I will upgrade to v. 2103 which was released on March 23rd 2021, build 4.4.0.79.

Before I do the upgrade of App Volumes manager, I shut down the server and take a snapshot. I also make sure to do a database backup of the App Volumes database. I furthermore check out the release notes from VMware posted here: VMware App Volumes 4, version 2103 Release Notes

I also check out the compability vs. Horizon, here: VMware Product Interoperability Matrices

The necessary installation media I download from My VMware and unpack the ISO-file. From the Ā«InstallationĀ» folder I launch the setup.msi file

The App Volumes 2103 Installation Wizard launches, Next…

In the App Volumes Install Screen, I select “Install App Volumes Manager”, Install…

This selection launches the App Volumes Manager Installation Wizard, Next…

OK to reboot afterwards…

After the upgrade is complete, I verify installed version and reboot the server. If everything works as planned afterwards, I delete the snapshot I created beforehand. This completes my upgrade of the VMware App Volumes Manager. I will now proceed with updating the App Volumes Agent, posted here: VMware App Volumes – Upgrade Agent
