Citrix Provisioning – Update vDisk

Vmtools not updating

When adding the Updater device to Active Directory, be mindful of group policies. It pays to have appropriate test systems and test plans to mitigate the risks associated with software updates and changes of all types, including infrastructure software. This is used by the Versioning method of updating a vDisk. If you need to do updates to multiple vDisks simultaneously, create more Updater devices.

Besides being a techie and a science buff, I like to travel and play guitars. As it turns out, the process is not that difficult as I explain next.

For scheduled promotion, the Target Devices must be rebooted after the scheduled date and time. Once testing is complete, promote the vDisk version again. At this time the client will list the virtual machines as unknown. If you need to Revert, you can use the Revert button, or the drop-down on top of the window.

Sometimes it is helpful to apply the group policies to the Updater device so they are stored in the vDisk you are updating. Final Word I guess someone has to take the risk and patch their systems to the latest versions first, especially as these were security patches with a critical severity. Notice that the Access is set to Maintenance.

Citrix Provisioning – Update vDisk – Carl Stalhood

The old saying goes that software eventually works and hardware eventually fails, but these days a lot of your hardware is also software, especially in a virtualized software defined datacenter. Merge Versions Citrix recommends no more than five. Run antivirus sealing tasks.

The Replication icon should have a warning icon on it indicating that you need to copy the files to the other Provisioning server. This will update the dashboard with information about virtual machines that are compliant or not. This basically requires a separate Updater device for each vDisk. You can test infrastructure hardware and infrastructure software changes first before putting them into production. To update virtual machines to the latest version of the tools and virtual hardware supported by your host you should start in the Virtual Machines and Templates view of the vSphere Client.

What to do next If a new virtual hardware version is available for the virtual machine, upgrade the virtual hardware. The remediation task allows you to schedule the upgrade or perform it immediately. This is the whole point of having infrastructure test systems. If your Update Manager or vCenter itself is running as a virtual machine you can not update it with Update Manager.

An Updater device can only boot from one vDisk at a time but it can boot from any vDisk. Users must not connect to an Updater device while it is powered on. Power off the target device so the vDisk is no longer being used. Power on the Updater Target Device.

Of course this Target Device will need to be configured to use the vDisk you are updating. You can alternatively reboot the guest operating system to accomplish all these tasks. This is all captured in the next video. Immediate means it will take effect only after Target Devices are rebooted, whether immediately or later. You can merge Merged Updates multiple.
