Module 6: Upgrading Unidesk components


Agenda

Agenda

  • Downloading and unpacking the bits

  • Preparing the environment

  • MA and MCP Upgrades

  • Updating the VIA Broker Agent

  • CP Upgrades

  • Replacing the CP Template


Downloading the bits

Downloading the Bits

  • Use the Unidesk installer to download a package for later use:


Upgrade bits

Upgrade Bits

  • Upgrade code is buried in the install packages you get when running the Unidesk installer

  • The following are needed from that package:

    • MA-Update ISO

    • CP-Update ISO

    • CP-template

  • Un-ZIP the CP template


Connecting the upgrade media

Connecting the Upgrade Media

  • Both upgrade ISOs are connected to the MA

    • You can do one at a time – Upgrade the MA, then the CPs. But the MA has two CD devices to allow connections for both ISO files.

  • Ensure the CD-ROM devices are “Connected” in the VM’s settings for the MA.


Upgrade unidesk

Upgrade Unidesk

  • System tab – Select Upgrade in Action Menu on the right

  • This queries the ISO/CD-ROM devices and checks available code there against MA and CPs

  • Preferred Upgrade Path:

    • Upgrade MA first

    • VIA Agent upgrades (Broker integration)

    • Upgrade Master CP

    • Upgrade remaining CPs


Upgrade the via agent

Upgrade the VIA Agent

  • Update the View or XenDT servers with the new Unidesk VIA Agent AFTER the MA is upgraded

  • Located in “Unidesk Broker Integration Tools” zip in the install Media

  • Stop the UniVIA service on the broker

  • Install on each connection server or XenDT DDC.


What about the desktops

What about the desktops?

  • No Unidesk desktop needs to be touched by the administrator!

  • Image preparation utilities installed in the gold-image are just that, image prep.

  • Any Unidesk drivers required will be updated automatically next BIC for the desktops.


Replacing the cp template

Replacing the CP Template

  • CP Template is used for any new CP deployments

  • Un-ZIP the CP template and you are presented with an OVF to import into vCenter and convert to a template

  • Import the new CP Template and change the CP Template settings in the System – Settings and Configuration tabs


Common issues

Common Issues

  • “No upgrade is available”

    • System already upgraded OR you CDs are not “connected”

  • Newly Deployed CPs are “old code”

    • CachePoint Template was not updated.
