VMware DEM – Upgrade Manager to v. 2203

Release date: June 11th 2022

Welcome to my VMware Dynamic Environment Manager series. In this session I will describe how I upgraded the VMware DEM Manager to v. 2203. According to VMware’s official documentation, Update sequence for Horizon 7, Horizon 8, and compatible VMware products (78445), this should be done after upgrading the Agents (including DEM Agent), as shown below.

I start out by downloading the installation media from VMware Customer Connect

Before I start the upgrade, I verify the installed version and build

This time I will be doing an unattended upgrade. First I download the msi-file to a temp folder.

I launch the upgrade by running the command below in an administrative cmd prompt

msiexec.exe /i "VMware Dynamic Environment Manager Enterprise 2203 10.5 x64.msi" /qn ADDLOCAL="FlexManagementConsole" /l* InstallDEM.log

Once the upgrade is done I can verify the status from the log-file and the installed version and build in Control Panel

This concludes my session about upgrading the VMware DEM Manager to v. 2203. I can now proceed with upgrading the GPO-bundles, posted here: VMware DEM – Upgrade GPO Templates to v. 2203
