What's in the Release Notes

The release notes for VMware App Volumes 2.13.3 includes important updates and bug fixes.

What's New

There is a new Disable certificate validation (insecure) checkbox that has been added to make it easier to upgrade App Volumes. The new checkbox enables you to choose whether or not to validate the Active Directory certificate. This option is available when you connect securely from Active Directory to App Volumes Manager using LDAPS or LDAP over TLS.

Upgrading to VMware App Volumes 2.13.3

If you had registered the Active Directory with LDAPS or LDAP over TLS (2.13 and later), then the Disable certificate validation (insecure) checkbox is checked by default. Keep it checked to to proceed without validating the Active Directory certificate. After you have configured the certificates, uncheck the box to begin validating the Active Directory certificate.
Note: You must have installed a CA root certificate of the domain before proceeding with certificate validation.
