Unable to See Security Servers Tab and More Commands Drop Down under Connection Server Tab

Jump to solution

I have installed VMware Horizon today with version and build.

VMware Horizon 7 Administrator

7.12.0 build - 15770369

When I tried to Install and Security Server, I realized there is no 'Security Servers' tab and also there is no 'More Commands' drop down option under Connection Servers Tab.

I am unable to generate the pairing password. Pleasae help.

Did you check whether these options are available in the old, flash based UI?

With flash support ending this year, how can we still view the security servers if we have not moved to UAGs yet? This is only available from the FlexAdmin page and not in the HTML page.

We can't see the security servers now, with Flash gone we can't manage these. VMware oversight on not including this functionality on HTML5 option 😞

There are no plans to port the Security Server management to the HTML console.  I wrote this script using PowerCLI to manage security server setting with a GUI similar to the FLEX console and to set the security server pairing password.  Note that prior to setting the security server pairing password with the script the connection server you are connecting to to update the password needs to be in the UTC time zone and rebooted, otherwise the time validity of the password will not be accurate.

That won't work.  The time zone on the connection server needs to be set to UTC.  UTC -5:00 will not work.   After the time zone is set on the connection server you will be setting the pairing password on it needs to be rebooted or the Horizon Service need to be restarted.  Then you can run the script.

I just ran the script and this is where you will find the configurations in ADAM

Hi,

 

  Install an old Windows 7 on your network with IE11 and flash and open the flex admin.

 

  Is the only way to work with it.

Hey Chris - due to log4j, i'm attempting to upgrade to v7.13.1 which has the remediation for html enabled. However, i'm stuck because of this. So in the screen shot, i can manually set the password in ADSI server properties and then restart the services? And then when i attempt to upgrade my connection server, it will accept password? Thanks much. Almost no information online regarding this.

You can't just update it in ADAM - it is an encrypted value.  You will need to use this script to set it:

Got it. Thanks. I have the script and seems to work for me. I cancelled out of it. Trying to schedule down-time tonight to upgrade as it does require restart of services and we need to minimize impact. Thanks again.
