Configure the connector appliance to point to the local Web server to perform an offline upgrade. Then upgrade the appliance.


Prepare a local Web server for offline upgrade.


  1. Log in to the connector appliance as the root user.
  2. Run the following command to configure an upgrade repository that uses a local Web server.
    /usr/local/horizon/update/updatelocal.hzn seturl http://YourWebServer/VM/

    To undo the configuration and restore the ability to perform an online upgrade, you can run the following command.

    /usr/local/horizon/update/updatelocal.hzn setdefault

  3. Perform the upgrade.
    1. Run the following command.
      /usr/local/horizon/update/updatemgr.hzn updateinstaller
    2. Run the following command to check the version of the available upgrade.
      /usr/local/horizon/update/updatemgr.hzn check
    3. Run the following command to update the connector.
      /usr/local/horizon/update/updatemgr.hzn update

      Messages that occur during the upgrade are saved to the update.log file at /opt/vmware/var/log/update.log.

    4. Run the updatemgr.hzn check command again.
      /usr/local/horizon/update/updatemgr.hzn check
    5. Check the version of the upgraded appliance.
      vamicli version --appliance

      The command should display the new version.

    6. Restart the connector appliance.

      For example, from the command line run the following command.



The connector upgrade is complete.
