Upgrading To Horizon View 5.2 – Transfer Server

We are on a roll, this is the fourth post in the upgrading to Horizon View 5.2.  To upgrade the Transfer Server we use the Connection Server installer from here and at the time of writing the latest release is VMware-viewconnectionserver-x86_64-5.2.0-987719.exe

Before we start the upgrade process, it’s a good idea to place the Transfer Server into Maintenance Mode, to do this, login to View Administrator and go to View Configuration > Servers > Transfer Servers > Enter Maintenance Mode

Security Server Upgrade 1

Now that’s done, lets crack on and launch the installer

Click Next

Connection Server Upgrade 2

As always, accept the EULA

Double check your domain details, transfer server FQDN and your administrators email address and click Next

Security Server Upgrade 2

Select ‘Configure Windows Firewall automatically’ and hit Next

Then click Install

This is going to take a few minutes, so time for  a quick brew.

Let’s double check Programs & Features to make sure we are on the correct Horizon View version.

At this point, I suggest you reboot your Transfer Server just to make sure everything is ‘tickety boo’.

Now it’s back online let’s go into View Administrator and go to View Configuration > Servers > Transfer Servers > Exit Maintenance Mode
