Another question...this time about App-V and RDS

    Question

  • I was able to get App-V to work on a server/client environment.

    Now, my next lab is to use RDS and App-V. Can someone point me to the right documentation on how to do this, please? (The only document I found was the App-V Remote Desktop Services.docx; however, it doesn't have the information I need to get this to work).

  • What are you trying to get working? There's nothing really special that you need to do for RDS.

  • That scenario will work - you would install and configure the App-V client just like you would on a desktop and configure it for applications from the Management Server as well as streaming (although you may want to pre-cache these dependent on the size of your implementation).

    Are your applications not being published and streamed?

  • Basically, I'm trying to present App-V applications to a RDS farm, and I was wondering if there was anything specific for such a setup.

  • You'll have to be more specific about what you're trying to do - what are you looking to achieve (execution on RDS, delivery of packages etc), what have you attempted thus far and if so, what issues ar you having.

    Also see these search queries for existing threads on RDS and RemoteApp with App-V topics:

  • My apologies for the lack of specifics.

    I'd like to be able to execute App-V applications on a RDS session (in my lab currently I have a RDS farm configured with 2 session host servers (RDSH1 & RDSH2) and a connection broker (RDBROKER1)). In other words, users that login to the RDS farm should have application icons presented by the App-V management server.

    What I've done so far. I have a working App-V hosting for desktop, so I'm assuming that the App-V management server (APPV1) can be used by the RDS farm to display any applications managed by this management server - unless my assumption is incorrect.

    I've also installed the App-V client on both session hosts and the client points to the management server (APPV1) I mentioned earlier.

  • That worked, thanks!

    Quick question though. I had to add "Domain Admins" to the Access Permissions group in order for my test applications to show up for users using RDS, even though these users with RDS access were also members of the AppV Users group (the AppV Users AD group has access to the applications in my App-V test environment). As soon as I added Domain Admins to the AppV Users group and I did a "Refresh Server", the apps showed up on the session host servers.
