This topic provides the procedure to upgrade the Presentation Server from version 10.0 to 10.1, or to apply a Fix Pack on 10.1. You can upgrade the Presentation Server using the upgrade wizard, or you can use the silent upgrade procedure.

Before you begin

To provide required permissions to nonroot users on Linux

On Linux computers, you can upgrade the Presentation Server only as a nonroot user. Though the nonroot user may already have ownership permissions for the destination directory, you must provide ownership permissions for the executables to the nonroot user. 

  1. Log on as a root user.
  2. Provide ownership permissions to nonroot users for all installation files by running the following command: 

    chown -R nonrootuser installationDirectoryFolderName

    nonrootuser is the name of the nonroot user.
    installationDirectoryFolderName
     is the name of the folder that contains the installation files. 

    For example,  chown -R nonroot /Linux/Disk1

  3. Provide Xauthority permissions by running the following command:

    chown -R nonrootuser /usr/bin/xauth 
  4. Apply executable rights to the installation files by running the following command:

    chmod -R 755 installationDirectoryFolderName

    For example, chmod -R 755 Disk1 

To upgrade the Presentation Server

  1. Launch the installation wizard:
    • (Windows) Navigate to Windows\Disk1 and double-click setup.exe.

    • (Linux) As a nonroot user, navigate to Linux/Disk1 and run ./setup.bin.

      Note

      Ensure that you have set the DISPLAY environment variable.

  2. On the Welcome page, click Next.
  3. On the License Agreement page, read the agreement and select the I agree to the terms of the license agreement option, and click Next
    If you do not agree to the terms of the license agreement, the installation process will not continue.
  4. On the Upgrade Confirmation page, click Yes, and click Next.
    The installer automatically verifies the upgrade requirements. If it finds any errors, it displays them in a separate window. You can quit the upgrade process at this point, correct the indicated discrepancies, and then rerun the upgrade.

    Important

    After you confirm, the Presentation Server is stopped temporarily and is started automatically post-upgrade.

  5. Verify that the information on the Installation Preview page reflects your upgrade correctly. Click Previous to make changes, or click Install.
  6. After the upgrade is complete, click View Log to view the log files and confirm that the upgrade process was successful.
  7. Click Done to exit the installation wizard.
