VMware Horizon – Upgrade Horizon Connection Servers to v. 2103

Release date: April 10th 2021

Welcome to my VMware Horizon series. In this session I will describe how I upgraded my VMware Horizon Connection Server to v. 2103

Before I start upgrading my Connection server, I verify that I have a valid backup and document my settings. I also disable the provisioning and desktop pools


Next, in Horizon Administrator, I disable the connection server I want to upgrade.


Before I start the upgrade, I verify the installed versions from Control Panel

Next, I login on the server and start the Installation Wizard

I launch the Horizon Connection server installation wizard, Next…

I accept the license terms, Next…

I won’t be joining CEIP, Next…

I acknowledge the Operational Data Collection info, Next…

I confirm the installation path, Install…

Once the installer finishes, click Finish…

I can now re-enable the connection server

Finally, I re-enable the desktop pools and the provisioning


After the installation is done, I can verify in Control Panel the installed version

This concludes my session about upgrading the Connection server to v. 2103. I can now proceed with upgrading the Enrollment server, posted here: VMware Horizon – Upgrade Horizon Enrollment server to v. 2103
