Install and Configure App Volumes v2.12? – Part 1

In my previous blogs we discussed about the new features, enhancements and improvements in v2.12. This blog will guide you through the install and Configure the App Volumes Manager v2.12.

Upgrading to App Volumes 2.12 is very straight forward although it’s not really an upgrade process. To UPGRADE you just need to remove the AV Manager and reinstall it. During installation you point to your existing database, it’s “UPGRADED”.

DON’t forget to upgrade the AV Agent v2.12 on all the systems.

Installation:

  • Download the App Volumes v2.12 binaries from VMware Official site.
  • Extract the VMware App Volumes ISO to the “VMware App Volumes Manager” server and execute the installer.
  • Right Click on Setup and Run as Administrator.
