Use the Migration wizard to migrate existing resource configurations from the Manage Desktop Applications user interface available in previous releases to virtual apps collections.

Important: You must migrate all existing resource configurations at the same time. For example, if you have Horizon Cloud and Citrix resources configured, select both in the Migration wizard. The Migration wizard is intended to be used only once to migrate all the resources at the same time. After it is run once, it will no longer be available.
Note: In a hosted environment, the migration process might take some time.

Prerequisites

Procedure

  1. In the Workspace ONE UEM console, navigate to Resources > Apps > Virtual Apps > Virtual Apps Collections New.
  2. Review the information and click Get Started.
    The Migration wizard appears and displays all existing resource configurations. Note that the Migration wizard appears only if your old installation had resources configured.
  3. In the Migration wizard, for each resource type, select the connector worker that was used for the configuration in the old installation.
    The drop-down menu for each resource type lists only the connectors that had that resource configured. If the resource was configured on multiple connectors for high availability, all the connectors appear in the list. The Syncing Automatically or Syncing Manually label indicates whether a sync schedule was set for the resource on that connector or whether it was set to manual sync. Select the connector that has the Syncing Automatically label. This is also the default selection in each list.
    Caution: Ensure that you make a selection for all the existing configurations. The Migration wizard can be used only once to migrate all the resources at the same time. After it is run once, it will no longer be available.
  4. Click Migrate.
    In a hosted environment, the migration process might take some time.

Results

The existing resource configurations are migrated. A virtual apps collection is created for each type of configuration. These collections are displayed in the Virtual Apps Collections page that appears after migration is complete. To view or edit a collection, click its name.

To access the Virtual Apps Collections page at any time, select the Catalog > Virtual Apps Collections tab.

For troubleshooting information on virtual apps collections, view both the connector log file, connector.log, and the service log file, horizon.log. On Linux virtual appliances, the log files are in the /opt/vmware/horizon/workspace/logs directory. On Windows servers, the log files are in the install_dir\IDMConnector_or_VMwareIdentityManager\opt\vmware\horizon\workspace\logs directory.

What to do next

  • Only one connector, the one you selected in the Migration wizard, is added to each new virtual apps collection. If you had set up a connector cluster for high availability, edit the collections and add the other connectors.
  • A single virtual apps collection is created for each migrated configuration. For large integrations, with many servers and apps, consider splitting the collection into multiple collections for easier management and faster sync. The virtual apps collection feature allows you to create multiple collections for each type of integration except ThinApp integrations.
