Publication Date:  2014-01-26  |   Views:  220  |   Downloads:  0  |   Author:  SU1001139679  |   Document ID:  EKB1000039371


Issue Description

For PVD Template , we need to do some updates on the template add or remove some Software and settings and push these updates to all the VMs deployed form the Same Template 

Alarm Information


Handling Process

1- Deploy a new VM from the OLD PVD Template 

2- login to the deployed VM and uninstall the PVD Driver 

3- Realse the IP address 

4- Update the PVD Driver 

5- Convert the VM to a template 

6- Register the new template in Fusion Access 

7- Push the updates to all the VMs , note all VMS must be shut down 

Root Cause

All the VMs deployed from a PVD template are sharing the same OS Mother volume , some changes can be done to this Mother volume and push them to all these VMs 


For Many customer , VMs can't be all shut down , it is better to have a patch to let updates be pushed while VMs are up so that it take effect after the next restart 

Also it is better to have a versioning for all the Templates so that I can see in one screen all the versions of update of a certain VM

Also It is better to have a way to check which VMs are deployed from a certain Template
