Sun VDI 3 - Patch 2 released

Hi,

Long time, no post. This doesn't mean that we are not around anymore;-) It's basically vacation period. However, during the last 2 months parts of my team have been working on a project that is called Sun VDI 3 - Patch 2. It sounds small, but it turned out to be a bigger chunk of work. It includes a number of enhancements:

  • Performance improvements for desktop provisioning and user desktop access
    That is a big step forward, as we have removed quite some slack in the code.
  • Recycling of Unix desktops
    This has been a missing feature for desktop life-cycle. Now all types of desktops can be controlled by recycling policies.
  • Support for SuSE 11 desktops with the VirtualBox hypervisor.
  • All-in-one configuration
    Similar to the evaluation setup. We've added a configuration option that allows to configure everything on one host using a remote DB. This is a supported configuration for production use.
  • Customization of the login screen.

The x86 version of the patch is: 141482-02

And the related Sparc version is 141481-02

You find also a new VirtualBox 2.0.10 installation set on the Sun VDI 3 download page. An update is generally recommended. You must update, if you want to benefit from the SuSE 11 support or the expanded recycling capabilities.

Hello,

In VDI3 there are 3 servers but only two are doing the actual sessions. Does this patch need to be installed in all the 3 servers or just the relevant two.

Thank you,

Imran
