VMware Horizon – Upgrade Horizon Agent to v. 7.12

Release date: March 18th 2020

Welcome to my VMware Horizon series. In this session I will describe how I upgraded the VMware Horizon Agent in my template to v. 7.12.

First, I power up the template and open Remote Console. I copy the installer I downloaded from MyVmware to a temp-folder inside the template

When the installer finishes, I restart the template

After the template has rebooted, I shutdown, take a new snapshot and redeploy the desktop pool. The last task when upgrading VMware Horizon, is to upgrade the clients. As I use a local client repository for this, I will proceed with upgrading the repository, posted here: VMware Horizon – Upgrade Client repository with v. 5.4 Clients
