When the update of the Horizon Cloud Node is complete, you can update the respective VMware agents in your master desktop virtual machines to finish the update process.

  1. In the Administration Console, select Inventory > Images, select the check box next to the image to update, and click Duplicate.
  2. Provide a name for the new image and click Save.

    The New Image dialog box appears and values refresh in the box as the desktop's associated virtual machine powers on.

  7. Log in to the desktop operating system and update it as required for your organization's needs, including installing the updated agents.
  8. In the Administration Console's New Image dialog box, update any additional required information until the Publish button is available.

    Scroll through the New Image dialog box to verify all the required text boxes are filled in.

  9. Click Publish.

    The image publishes.

  10. On the Images page, refresh the page until the status of the image you duplicated changes to Published, which might take a few minutes
  11. Select the check box next to the image, click ..., and select Push Updates.

    The Push Updates dialog box appears.

  12. Select the check box next to the assignments to update and click OK.

    The updated master desktop VM containing the updated agents replaces the desktop VMs in the assignments you selected.
