Hi Leandro, are you refering to App-V server? Server App-V is a seperate product as a feature of SCVMM2012 and is not the same. It may be an idea to take Server App-V off the article name to avoid confusion. Kind Regards - Ronnie
Thank you for your comment.
I've noticed the name was wrong (actualy I've translated from Portuguese and I didn't notice that.)
I have made the modifications and now I'm using only "App-V Server".
The list of IIS services that need to be installed is missing IIS Management Scripts and Tools (It is shown in the screenshot though).
When you select to install IIS by default the system select the option "IIS Management Scripts and Tools"
So beyond the default options during the IIS installation, you have to select the components in the list above.
Hi, I don't know if its too late to ask a questions, but when you install the App-V Management Server, it tries to make changes in Active Directory object of the management server, I believe it adds SPN. Is this true and what else does it change or add in Active Directory? Do you have to be Domain Admin to install the server?
Hi Leonardo. Not sure if I broke rules or not. I modified the post a bit by adding
If it's required to point to a different share which is not directly on the APP-V Management server you
can do this by setting the registry HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Softgrid\4.5\Server\SOFTGRID_CONTENT_DIR
to your content location - Rory Monaghan (Rorymon)
The Application Virtualization Management Server service can be changed to Automatic (Delayed) this
ensure the service will start successfully after a server reboot. Sometimes the service failed to start after
reboot but setting this option starts it a minute or so after reboot ensuring the service can successfully
initiate. - Rory Monahan (Rorymon)
Just thought it might be useful to know. I'm not sure if that was right to do, I assume a WIKI means users can edit. If I did anything wrong or you disagree, by all means remove it.
That's the Wiki Spirit. You can change and modify whatever you want and I'm glad you did. Your modifications are very useful and made a lot of difference. Thanks for your help.
Great post thank you very much for the information, it's very helpful indeed.
One think I just wanted to clarify - If I wanted the content share to live on a separate server (DFS-R share for resiliency purposes) during the installer presumably I would set the Content Path location to be the DFS share? And would I then also set the Default Content Path in the System Options to be the DFS share also? And then set the SOFTGRID_CONTENT_DIR registry key to be the DFS share as well?! Is it necessary to set in all three locations?
I modified the tags so they made more sense (and are useful). Also, we are standardizing on "Has Comment" and "Has Image", even if there is more than one, so that tag searches will find all relevant articles (whether there is one or many).
