VMware Horizon JMP – Upgrade to v. 7.12

Release date: March 19th 2020

Welcome to my VMware Horizon JMP series. This topic will cover upgrading JMP. As I have already upgraded my existing VMware Horizon environment to 7.12, Connection Server, Agents and GPO’s, it’s now time to upgrade the JMP server.

Prior to upgrading my JMP Server, I shut  down my JMP Server and take a snapshot. Once the server is up and running I start the upgrade by running the executable

JMP_Upgrade_7.11 to7.12-01


This installer detects my old version and upgrades this, OK…

JMP_Upgrade_7.11 to7.12-02


When the InstallShield wizard launches, Next…

JMP_Upgrade_7.11 to7.12-03


I accept the license terms, Next…

JMP_Upgrade_7.11 to7.12-04


I fill in my database-info, browse to find the correct database, Next…

JMP_Upgrade_7.11 to7.12-05



JMP_Upgrade_7.11 to7.12-06


When the InstallShield wizard completes, Finish…

JMP_Upgrade_7.11 to7.12-07


I reboot the server and verify that the JMP services are started afterwards



This concludes my session about upgrading my VMware Horizon JMP server to 7.12. Not a terribly difficult task. Once functionality is verified and backup run, I make sure to remove the snapshot I created to begin with.
