How to deploy App V with an existing SCCM2007 R2 infrastructure RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was wondering if anyone has found any step by step guidance on this covering which components of AppV are required and where they should be installed.  I think I've an idea from reading Technet guides, that the client needs to be on all target PC's, a sequencer needs to be on a separate PC that could be virtual for sequencing applications and these are packaged in SCCM for distribution.  But I'm unsure what needs to be installed on the SCCM infrastructure if anything, i.e. where do the streaming and management servers go, do I need both?

  • You might check out the guidance from Microsoft around this.  It isn't step by step but should get you on the right track.

    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/appvirtualization/cc843994.aspx

    There is a whitepaper called "Virtual Application Management with Microsoft Application Virtualization 4.5 and System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R2" that has all the basic principals.

    As mentioned by Kent,  when you use SCCM R2 as your distribution method no App-V Servers are required.  Only the sequencer for creating packages and the client installed in standalone mode are required.

    The rest is handled by SCCM R2.

  • Hi,
    You only need to configure the distribution points to support App V and the Advertised client agent. I wrote a post on the configuration - http://blog.coretech.dk/appvirtual/how-to-configure-virtual-application-support-on-configuration-manager/

    You don't need the streaming servers (that role will be taken care of by the DP) or the Management Server (that will be "normal" config mgr. management).
