publishing an app

    Question

  • Hello,

    I need some help for moving forward. Read documents,watched some videos by Rory and Nicke. But missing some info.

    Please provide appropriate links for points I am missing.

    I installed App-v Man, SQL and Publishing servers. All 3 interacting well.

    1. Reporting and Management services are running on App-v Man.

    2. SQL server contains Reporting and Management DBs.

    3. Publishing server was added to App-v Man.

    I sequenced first app. And want to publish it.

    But on publishing server I don't have any icon to start Publishing GUI. Should I have one

    I can see Publishing service folder  under program files on Publishing server.

    Need a clarification or a doc for best practices on how to store packages and if additional File server will be in best practices I will be happy to add it and make it fault tolerant (if it will become necessary).

    Really cannot find any guidance on that.

    Or I can just create shared folder on publishing server and than add package using unc (http) in app-v man.

    Thanks.

  • The Management Server Console for managing application is a URL...http://localhost:Port/Console.html ...the Port will be the port you select for your Management Server. You can also obviously access by using http://ServerName(Fully Qualified Domain Name):Port/Console.html

    The absolute best performance is seen when using SMB 3.0. You could create a shared folder and just browse to the .appv file in the share to import. If you are using HTTP or HTTPS you'll need to ensure you instead point to the appv file on the file share using a URL http://server.domain.com/Share/AppFolder/App.appv"

    You will need to decide where to put your storage, I would think it depends on the number of applications and users. If you're not familiar you could consult with some colleagues familiar with storage.

  • ... a kind request: did you ever try to click on the 'fireside' link in my signature? 

    Currently, the 'Native Infrastraucture' chapter is available as a free download of our App-V book, and that'll answer quite a few of the questions you had in the past (and perhaps the future).... be patient as we don't auto-reply to requests.

  • Falko,

    I did a request for the book 2 times starting 2 weeks ago (one per week).

    Sure will not do it for a third time, and will wait.

    I appreciate all the help I am getting here. May be some of my questions are funny or you have an impression that I am ignoring a learning curve. Not at all.

    Simply, it is too many pieces of the puzzle. And the puzzle itself is pretty complex.

    Some articles are real bargain that clarify many things. Others are not complete or are just for basic tests scenarios. That is why I am asking "too many" questions.

    Thanks for understanding :)

    BTW, my e-mail is ma....@hotmail.ca . I will appreciate and will profit the case to ask you to accelerate the process of yours book delivery if possible.

    Thanks.

  • Hi, I'll look into the requests perhaps today or tomorrow.

    In fact I see a learning curve :-) And no, I didn't want you to stop questions. Asksing questions is why we are here...

  • Rory,

    thanks for the answer. Sorry if my question looked stupid.

    Sure, I accessed Management server console right after installation (external SQL and DBs were correctly configured)...

    I messed up with publishing server...
