I have a problem with appv client 5.0. When the system startup the applicattions don't refresh. If I open the console APPV and manually check doesn't work....
I find event logs and all seem OK
*Client: Event 19002 Publishing refresh started URL: http://appvserver:889 ALL OK
* Server APPV: Log Operational ==> the user request refresh ALL OK
The package is successfully updated and published. In the console appears in green.
On the other hand, I revised : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2778168 ALL OK
Any errors appear anywhere
I don't undestand what happens.....
can you confirm that http://appvserver:889 is your publishing server (and not your management server)?
In a browser, can you open http://appvserver:889 ? You should seen an XML file that contains something (or almost nothing)
What AD assignemts did you configure for the application on the Management Server? A Group with users or computers?
In the Server Management Console, 'Server' section, there should be your Publishing Server listed. Is there a current entry for the last refresh time?
@Rorymon: to be precise, that setting does not dictate how often a client can refresh, but how often the Publishing Server connects to the Management Server for an update list of applications (well, the perceived result is siilar)
Now, in the Appv-server Event Log (SERVER-PUBLISHING/ADMIN) I see
Log Name: Microsoft-AppV-Server-Publishing/Admin
Event ID: 103
Task Category: None
User: IIS APPPOOL\AppVPublishing
Failed to refresh publishing metadata.
Message: DownloadMetadataError (URL: http://localhost:889/Publishing/Metadata/)
Details: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
The issue is in your Publishing Server config (well... *one* issue is there, but there might be others).
The RegValue PublishingService / Publishing_Mgt_Server should point to http://localhost:888instead of 889.
With that value you tell the PublishingServer where it can find the ManagementServer.
Your publishing server and management server are still probably not in sync. I think we need to find the catalog disconnect. Are the apps listed in the manifest under %PROGRAMDATA%\Microsoft\AppV\Server\Publishing\PublishingMetadata.xml?
Can you browse this same information when you pull up the URL in IE?
