Deployment and Installation Workflow
The Cisco Jabber for Windows and Cisco JVDI Agent versions must always match. The Cisco JVDI Client version can be the same, or up to two releases earlier. The available feature set is determined by the earlier software version.
You must install both Cisco JVDI Agent and Cisco JVDI Client; otherwise, the softphone fails to register.
We recommend that you read the Release Notes for Cisco Jabber Softphone for VDI—Unicon eLux for your release. Review the requirements to confirm that all required hardware and software meet them. Failure to meet all requirements can result in a nonfunctional deployment.
Follow the instructions to deploy Cisco Jabber for Windows, up to the installation of the Jabber client.
See On-Premises Deployment for Cisco Jabber for your release.
For hybrid deployments, see Cloud and Hybrid Deployments for Cisco Jabber for your release.
Jabber deployment guides are available from: https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/support/unified-communications/jabber-windows/products-installation-guides-list.html.
Create and set up the hosted virtual desktops in the data center.
Ensure that the hosted virtual desktops (HVD) are ready for you to install Cisco Jabber Softphone for VDI.
Set up and configure the thin clients. Documentation for Unicon eLux thin clients is available from the individual hardware vendors. Documentation for Unicon eLux is available from www.unicon-software.com/udocs.
Configure the network. See Port Requirements.
Install the Cisco Jabber Softphone for VDI components on the thin clients and the hosted virtual desktop. See Install the Components Workflow.
After you install Cisco JVDI Agent and other required software on the HVD, you can clone the HVD.
Use the Elias tool to create an image that contains Cisco JVDI Client. Deploy the image to the thin clients. For more information about how to create an image or how to update the thin client, see the Elias documentation available from the Unicon website.
