VMware Horizon – Upgrade Horizon GPO Bundle 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 GPO Templates.

This is what VMware’s release notes say about the Horizon GPO Bundle

VMware’s Release Notes for VMware Horizon version 2103

In order to upgrade the VMware Horizon GPO’s, I login into one of my Active Directory servers. I copy the VMware-Horizon-Extras-Bundle-2103-8.2.0-17759012.zip file to a temp-folder and extract it.

I first copy and replace all the admx-files to my Central Store location, in my LAB this will be: “C:WindowsSYSVOLsysvolad.admin.frelab.netPoliciesPolicyDefinitions”

Next, I copy and replace the adml-files from the en-US folder to “C:WindowsSYSVOLsysvolad.admin.frelab.netPoliciesPolicyDefinitionsen-US”

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