In order to install flexVDI 3.0, you will need the following files.

  • The flexVDI 3.0 installer.
  • A flexVDI manager disk image, only if Hosts cannot access internet. Otherwise, flexVDI Config can automatically download the image during the installation process.

Both files can be downloaded from the flexVDI Customer Portal.

Access flexVDI Customer Portal

Open a web browser and go to https://portal.flexvdi.com. If you have not done it yet, register with a user name and a password in the 'Register' tab. Then, enter your credentials in the login form:

Once you have been logged in, go to the Products option, if you are not already there.

Download flexVDI Installer 3.0

From that section you can download the Installer and the latest images of the flexVDI Manager. You only need to download the Manager image if your hosts have limited access to the Internet.

Here you will also find links to this documentation, other downloads and the support platform (http://support.flexvdi.com).

Contracts and Licenses

Since flexVDI 3.0, the product page in the Customer Portal shows the support contracts and user licenses that you have acquired. Support contracts allow you to receive support and software updates, while user licenses allow your users to connect to VDI sessions. By default, an evaluation contract and license are created when a new user is registered, that allow her to test flexVDI 3.0 for 30 days with up to 10 users. As you purchase additional licenses and contracts, they will appear in the product page.

 

Installing flexVDI 3.0

Unlike previous versions, that shipped as a full CentOS 6.5-based distribution, flexVDI 3.0 consists of a repository of RPM packages that can be installed on either Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 or CentOS 7. So, first of all you have to install one of these two operating systems.

Upgrade to the latest revision of the distribution with yum update, and reboot if the kernel version has been upgraded too.

Then, the flexVDI 3.0 installer will help you configure the access to the repository. Download it to your first host and run it:

# chmod u+x ./flexvdi-installer-3.0
# sudo ./flexvdi-installer-3.0

The installer will first show you the End User License Agreement. You must accept it in order to install flexVDI 3.0. Then, follow the instructions to log in the Customer Portal:

1.- Subscribe this host with the flexVDI Customer Portal
   Enter a name for this host [flexhost01.example.com]:
   Enter your Customer Portal username: test
   Enter your Customer Portal password: ********
Successfully logged in the Customer Portal!

The next step will show you a list with your currently active contracts, and you can select one of them. If there is only one, it is selected for you:

2.- Configure yum repositories

- Repository flexVDI 3.0 needs an active contract.
  Using contract flexVDI 3.0 30-day Evaluation (2017-08-22 - 2017-09-21)

Finally, the installer will use yum to install the flexVDI packages for you. Once done, you can continue configuring your first flexVDI host.
