Managing APP V applications with SCCM 2012 SP1

    Question

  • Hi

    Can someone help me with my understanding of App V with SCCM; Currently we use SCCM 2012 sp1 to deploy applications using silent installs; after some recent reading of App V version 5 SP1 i really like the idea as to how simple application management can be. I want to make a pitch to the team to give this a shot but am needing some quick help to understand this idea of virtual application and the management of these applications.

    Can someone help me with these senarios\Questions?

    1) Deploying an AppV application?

    You deploy an application as per normal to a device\User\Security Group Collection, Can you delete the deployement and will it remain. How do you manage your app-V deployements -> Send them to a multiple user groups created for the applications?

    2) Update of an AppV application?

    You open the application package in the sequencer, make the change. Does this automatically update to users who still have the active deployement next time they login?

    3) Can most applications by virtualized?

    Do you have a full app-V shop, ie would it work well in a SAP GUI, SAP Portal, OFFICE, LYNC Voice, IE environement where integration between these apps are critical?

    4) AppV packages -> Slow link branches

    Is this handled well? Will it stream until availble offline when in a slow link boundary?

  • 1) You deploy them just like anything in ConfigMgr: to collections. The collections can contain systems, users, and user groups.

    2) No, with ConfigMgr, you create a new application and supersede the old one.

    3) Yes.

    4) Integrated into ConfigMgr, you can stream the app from the DP or (what folks choose to do) deploy it outright to the ConfigMgr cache where it is streamed from so offline or online never matters.
