On the navigation panel, under Dashboards, click VMware Horizon View to open VMware View Environment dashboard.
Click the Administration tab.
Click Update Agent once for each Foglight Agent Manager instance on which outdated VMware Horizon View agents are running.
Click the Details tab, then the Desktops tile.
On the navigation panel, click Administration > Agents > Agent Status, to open the Agent Status dashboard.
Click Modify the private properties for this agent.
In the Properties area, set to True the following options: Collect CPU metrics, Collect disk metrics, Collect memory metrics, and Collect network metrics.

On the navigation panel, under Dashboards, click Administration > Agents > Agent Status.
NOTE: Alternatively, you can deploy the updated agent package (HypervAgent.gar) using the browser interface; for details, see Appendix: Deploying an agent package using the browser interface. In this case, you need to create the corresponding credentials any existing Hyper-V agents manually, after deploying the agent package.
