You can install the Mirage client by running the .msi installer file.

About this task

The .msi installation file is located in the Mirage installation package.


  1. Verify that you have administrative permissions.

  2. Verify that your platform meets the software and hardware requirements.

  3. Because you cannot place Mirage servers in your DMZ premises, you must use a VPN to connect clients that are used outside the network.

  4. You must configure SSL on both the Mirage client and the Mirage server for the clients to connect using SSL.


  1. Double-click the .msi file for your environment to start the installation wizard.







  2. Follow the prompts until you come to the server settings page, type the server settings, and then click Next.



    IP or FQDN of server

    Type the IP address or FQDN of the Mirage server or the shared IP of the load balancer in a cluster that you want this client to communicate with.

    You can also append a port to the server location if you do not want to use the port (the default port is 8000).

    Use SSL to connect to the server option

    Select this option to enable SSL if your server is configured for SSL use, and type the required SSL port.

  3. Click Install, and when the installation is finished, click Finish.
  4. (Optional) Restart your computer.

    For first-time installation and re-installation, restarting assures better backup protection and enables streaming, which promotes faster restore.


After the Mirage client is installed, the endpoint appears in the Management console as Pending Assignment.

What to do next

Activate the device in the Management console and use a CVD on the server to assign it. This process synchronizes the device and centralizes management of the device data.
