Welcome to my VMware Horizon series. The new version of VMware Horizon, 2106, was GA on July 15th 2021.  In this section I will describe how I upgraded my VMware Horizon infrastructure to v. 2106

Prior to upgrading Horizon, I check out VMware Product Interoperability Matrices to see that my planned upgrade path is supported.

The procedure used for upgrading is as follows:

  1. Upgrade Connection server
  2. Upgrade Enrollment server
  3. Upgrade GPO-Bundle
  4. Upgrade Horizon Agent
    1. Linux Agent
