VMware Horizon Mirage 5.9 update and WebConsole install

As I mentioned in my previously article, we have introduced VMware Horizon Mirage. I would like to share our upgrade process, particularly one moment.

The upgrade process is very simple. You can follow this document:

http://pubs.vmware.com/mirage-59/topic/com.vmware.mirage.installation.doc/GUID-F55E52FE-E459-4F22-A453-D8834DC93784.html

First of all you can upgrade your Mirage management server or servers then upgrade your Mirage servers. When you want to connect to Mirage Console after upgrade (only mirage management server updated) it wont be work, becouse you have to upgrade mirage servers to. In the console, under System Configuration / Servers tree you will see configuration mismatch error message.

Check the points in secund step in VMware documentation, and the upgrade process is done! 🙂

Let’s go install a new web interface to our new Mirage server. It was part of our plan, but before we had been installed the web console we upgraded our servers to new versions.

We decided to install Web Management solution on Mirage Management servers. I didn’t find any recommendation why can’t do this.

Install IIS server

Install Web Management server

When we tried to install msi file, we got an error message: “VMware mirage web applications setup wizard ended prematurely”

VMware_Mirage_Setup_Wizard_ended_prematurely

Fortunately we found a VMware Community discouss about this problem, and it solved the problem.

The solution:

  • Log into the server (our case Mirage Management server) by Mirage Service Account
  • Run a Command promt by Administrator
  • msiexec.exe /i “c:\tmp\mirage.WebManagement.x64.161934.msi” /L* “C:\TMP\mirageinstall.log”

The Web Management installed fine! 🙂
