There are some restrictions and limitations that apply when specifying a VDI plugin version. The following sections cover expected behavior and limitations.
This article covers:
The plugin version specified in a policy will be downloaded and installed only if the version meets some requirements.
It’s required that the version of the VDI plugin must be equal to or less than the version of the VDI Zoom Meeting client. If the value configured for AutoUpdatePluginVersion is greater than the VDI Zoom Meeting client version, the version specified will not be installed and a version compatible with the client will be downloaded and installed instead.
The Zoom VDI Plugin Management software supports a limited range of backward-compatible VDI plugin versions for each VDI Zoom Meeting client release. Newer versions will only install a specified version of the VDI plugin if the version specified is supported by the VDI Zoom Meeting client’s compatibility for the VDI Plugin Management. For more information, visit VDI plugin and VDI Plugin Management versions.
The above table is an example showing some recent releases with the default, minimum, and maximum plugin versions that can be specified. Learn more about new releases and compatibility.
If the version specified for AutoUpdatePluginVersion is outside of the versions supported for the release of the VDI Zoom Meeting client, the Zoom VDI Plugin Management software will install the default plugin value instead.
If the version specified for AutoUpdatePluginVersion is less than the version currently installed, the plugin management software will inform the user that the plugin they are using needs to be uninstalled before the required VDI plugin can be installed.
Note: Specifying a VDI plugin less than a version that is already installed can result in removing the existing VDI plugin, even if that VDI plugin is compatible with the VDI Zoom Meeting client. For this reason, Zoom does not recommend using the AutoUpdatePluginVersion policy unless there is a compelling reason to enforce a specific version. The recommended approach for the Zoom VDI Plugin Management is to allow the default VDI plugin version to be installed.
