[App-V 5] Cannot get published information RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi all,

    I am deploying an App-V 5.0 client in a test lab. A problem that I have now, is that I am not able to sync the applications from the management server, by using Powershell or the App-V Client GUI. On the server side everything is looking OK, I can open the console and I see that my apps are published.

    I get the following error on the App-V client: Internal Error detail: 45500D2780190194 The eventlog also gives me errors: 0x45500D27 and 0x80190194

    I think i have set up the Publisingserver correctly using powershell cmdlets on the App-V client. Also when I open a webbrowser on the clientside and I go to my publishing server with the following url: http://<managementserver:12345/Packages I see a correct list of the packages, so I would say that on the server side everything is looking OK.  

    Please advice, because it already takes a long time to troubleshoot this? 

    Thanks

  • Problem solved. At the end it was my error. I thought that when I install the Management Server I also had publishing capabilities. I didn't know that I also needed a Publishing server/website on the same server. So basically I had a partial installation. When I add the Publishing server installation on the Management server, it was working.

  • Could you please detail your environment in more detail.

    How are you defining the publishing server on the client? (i.e. what's the add-appvpublishingserver command line that you used? What's the output from get-appvclientconfiguration?

    Have you followed this article: How to troubleshoot publishing server refresh failures in App-V v5 ?

  • Well it is a simple testenvironment. So the servers are running W2K8R2, SQL2008R2 (build 10.50.2811) and 1 Windows 7 X64 client.
    When the App-V client is installed, as a test I run the following Powershell command: "add-AppvPublishingServer -Name AppVServer -url Http://<servername>:12345" after that I run the command "Sync-AppVPublishingServer -ServerID 1". Then I got the error:

    Operation attempted: RefreshPublishingServer.

    Windows Error: 0x80190194 -

    Error module: Publishing. Internal error detail: 45500D2780190194. 

    When I go on the App-V client to http://<servername>:12345/packages I see a XML file with my packages, so that is looking OK. The article doesn't give me a solution for my problem. Also the Update button in the App-V client GUI doesn't perform a sync.

    What am I doing wrong here? Is it something with authentication?

    My goal is to find a solution for a new production environment that we are currently building. In earlier versions of App-V we normally used a File Streaming method in combination with a third party Desktop Management Tool to publish the shortcuts for the users. As far as I can see now this method is not the way to go anymore because with App-V 5 I see extra maintenance to add the packages to the App-V client when you're not using an App-V server.

  • Hello,

    Have you verified against this guide that you server is setup properly?

  • I think so. Yesterday I have created a total new testenviroment that resides in our company. This enviroment is not exactly the same as our customer, but I want to find out how the product work and how I need to install it.  In this testenvironment I am using a Windows Server 2012 with SQL 2012 Standard and a Windows 8 Machine with the App-V 5 client. I followed all the prerequisites described in the manual. The installation is very basic, but again no luck with the App-V client. I got the same error. Also the Silverlight console is working fine without any problem.

    But, one thing what I do is different. I don't want to use the installer to create the database. This because of the following reasons:

    - The production environment that resides at the client is a SQL Cluster and I simply cannot easily test (or don't know) if the Installer of App-V 5 is compatible with SQL Failover Clusters. The cluster is also running productiondatabases now, so there is no room for error.

    - I don't want to install .Net or other stuff on the SQL Nodes just to create a database.

    So therefor I am using the SQL Scripts that are inside the installer to manually create the management database. I really don't know why Microsoft has chosen to create a seperate installer for the creation of the Database and why in h*ll i am not able to remotely install this database and need to do this tasks on the SQL server (or I must be mistaken in this?). It makes things unnecessary complex.  Also in my testenvironment I needed to create a new SQL Server just for App-V, because normally we want to go on SQL Server on a Core installation for all our infrastructure products and for App-V 5 it is not supported on Core installations. it feels like I am going back in time with App-V 5 :)  

    But, the only thing that I am not totally convinced of is the Permissions.sql script to create the database. I need to set a Hex value there of the SID of the user that is installing the product. I am not really sure how to see this Hex value. Now I have used ADSIEDIT, go to the user, find the SID, doubleclick it and copied everything that was in the HEX drop down list. Is there a easier way of doing this and could it be that there is a issue here? Again, the console looks OK.

    Please advice, thanks!
