App-V Refreshing Apps without Logoff/Logon or Client UI RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi

    I have a customer who wants the following functionality:

    - User gets added to AD group

    - Client refresh happens without having to logoff/on or initiate manual "Update" on the Client UI. 

    I understand the task that initiates the refresh is contained in a scheduled task that runs at Logon, but would it be feasible in a VDI scenario with 200 servers to run this refresh so frequently that the user would receive apps almost immediately after being added to the AD group. 

    I'm not sure anyone has even considered AD replication but all the DCs would be within datacentre obviously so that replication would be quick. 

    Thanks for entertaining..

  • Hi, by GPO you can configure the 4 scheduled tasks to perform a refresh:
    @logon global/user
    @interval global/user (interval can be set to run for instance every hour if you want to)

    De default refresh internval on the appv5 backend is set to 10min, but can be adjusted bij a registry key. In a production env. I would keep it 10min.
