VMware Horizon – Upgrade to v. 2212

Release date: January 20th 2023

Welcome to my VMware Horizon series. The new version of VMware Horizon, 2212, was GA on January 12th 2023. According to the VMware Horizon 8 2212 Release Notes, this release is an Extended Service Branch (ESB) . Although there are many cool new features in this release, the most anticipated has to be Published Apps on Demand from RDS Farms. Also the possibility to use Windows MAK keys for Instant Clones, is handy.

Anyhow, in this section I will describe how I upgraded my VMware Horizon infrastructure to v. 2212. But first, at what point in an upgrade procedure should we upgrade the VMware Horizon Components? According to VMware’s official documentation, this should be done as shown below.

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 HAProxy Load Balancer
  2. Upgrade Horizon Clients (Repository)
  3. Upgrade Workspace One Access
  4. Upgrade Connection servers
  5. Upgrade Enrollment server
  6. Upgrade Recording Server
  7. Upgrade UAG’s
  8. OSOT MDT Plugin (No upgrades available)
  9. Upgrade Horizon Agent
    1. Linux Agent
  10. Upgrade GPO-Bundle
