Linux Virtual Delivery Agent

Installation overview

There are three options for you to install the Linux VDA. You can do a fresh installation or upgrade an existing installation from the previous two versions and from an LTSR release.


We provide a command-line utility, the Linux XDPing tool, to check for common configuration issues with a Linux VDA environment. You can install the XDPing package on any machine running a supported Linux distribution. XDPing does not require the Linux VDA package to be installed on the machine. For more information about the tool, see Knowledge Center article CTX202015.
