I've got several hundred win10 static VM's that need to be upgraded from agent v 7.08 to 8.x There is no reliable upgrade of this agent so it must be uninstalled.. reboot then new agent installed. Anybody have any methods to share to make this process less pain?
I don't know if you have resolved
But if you want you can try to use this script (I have changed my horizon installation script)
I suggest you try the script on limited VMs (2-3) that are not critical.
For any questions ask me!
I attempted the script and it ran fine to the point where it uninstalled the agent then rebooted the workstation. Then it hung for 10 minutes waiting for reboot (even though it did reboot as I was watching it in vcenter console session).
I decided to manually reboot it while the script was waiting.. then it progressed to detecting no agent on workstation and asked to disconnect from vcenter.
screenshots with workstation name crossed out.
The SMB share mounts fine locally on Win10 and maps an S drive. I executed the bat file manually and it pops a UAC warning then setup came up in interactive mode.
Contents of bat file
S:\VMware-Horizon-Agent-x86_64-2111-8.4.0-19446757.exe /s /v"/qn REMOVE=ClientDriveRedirection”
Note I get garbage chars at the end of ClientDriveRedirection instead of a quote
