  • SCCM R2 utilizes HTTP from IIS as the streaming mechanism.  When using SCCM R2, SCCM is the publishing service for applications and clients are in stand alone mode. 


    The management Server and Streaming Server are App-V based services, where the Management Server provides publishing (Provisioning) and Streaming (RTSP/RTSPS).  The Streaming server provides only the streaming component and no publishing (provisioning service).


    It would be assumed if you are using SCCM R2 that there won't be any management or streaming servers as the DPs can be configured to allow streaming with IIS and Branch DPs can use file streaming.  All of the provisioning of apps is handled with SFTMIME and SFTTray commands via advertised programs from SCCM.  There is an interface that allows you to import the manifest.xml file that will create the above mentioned programs for advertisement.  There should be more documentation on the SCCM R2 App-V integration piece coming out soon, if it hasn't already been released.


    In the Beta of SCCM R2 it did utilize the Streaming Server on the DPs for streaming.  That was changed before the release of the RTM bits to utilizing IIS for HTTP/HTTPS streaming.  Some of this was mentioned in a previous post:
