Before you start the offline connector upgrade, prepare the local Web server by creating a directory structure that includes a subdirectory for the connector appliance.

Download the identity-manager-connector-versionNumber-buildNumber-updaterepo.zip file from My VMware. Go to my.vmware.com, navigate to the VMware Identity Manager Download page, and download the file listed under VMware Identity Manager Connector offline upgrade package.

1

Create a directory on the Web server at http://YourWebServer/VM/ and copy the downloaded zip file to it.

2

Verify that your Web server includes mime types for .sig (text/plain) and .sha256 (text/plain).

Without these mime types your Web server fails to check for updates.

3

Unzip the file.

The contents of the extracted ZIP file are served by http://YourWebServer/VM/.

The extracted contents of the file contain the following subdirectories: /manifest and /package-pool.

4

Run the following updatelocal.hzn command to check that the URL has valid update contents.

/usr/local/horizon/update/updatelocal.hzn checkurl http://YourWebServer/VM
