The administrator can deploy the Horizon Mirage client installer silently, without disturbing user operations, by using command-line arguments.

1

Verify that you have administrative permissions.

2

Verify that your platform meets the software and hardware requirements.

3

Because you cannot place Horizon Mirage servers in the customer's DMZ premises, use a VPN to connect clients that will be used outside the network.

4

If the client will use SSL to connect to the server SSL must already be configured on the server.

1

Select Start > Run, type cmd, and click OK.

2

Type the required expression for your environment and press Enter.

Description

32-bit clients

<Mirage MSI path>\MirageClient.x86.buildnumber.msi SERVERIP=MirageServer /quiet

For the SERVERIP parameter, you can use a DNS FQDN or hostname instead of the server IP address.

64-bit clients

<Mirage MSI path>\MirageClient.x64.buildnumber.msi SERVERIP=MirageServer /quiet

(Optional) If SSL needs to be enabled, type the following expression and press Enter:

<Mirage MSI path>\MirageClient.x86.buildnumber.msi SERVERIP=MirageServer:port USESSLTRANSPORT=true /quiet
4

(Optional) Restart your computer.

For first-time installation, restarting the computer assures better backup protection and enables streaming which promotes faster restoration.

For an upgrade, restarting promotes better performance.

When the installation is finished, the Horizon Mirage client appears in the Management console in the Pending Devices list.

Verify that SSL is enabled on the Horizon Mirage server.

Activate the device in the Management console to assign the device to a CVD on the server. This process synchronizes the device and centralizes management of the device data. See Centralizing Endpoints.
