Pre-Cache (Download and Execute) via OSD Task Sequence RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I'm new to AppV so forgive me if this is a dumb question.  I have sequenced several programs, and can successfully advertise and deploy them with SCCM 2007 R3.

    What I would like to do now, is deploy all of my apps during an OSD Task Sequence.  The catch is, I need the applications to end up pre-cached (download and execute I believe it is called).  I have followed the following instructions


    The applications are successfully registered on the machine, but it looks like they are streaming from the DP, and not just running from cache. During the OSD, a 1.5 GB virtual app is taking only 1 second to successfully complete the task. 

    When the OSD completed, I unplugged the ethernet cable to simulate being offsite.  Any attempts to run these apps results in "An Application Distribution Point is Not Available".  Once I plug the cable back in, they run beautifully.

    Is there a way to force the app to be pre-cached during an OSD Task Sequence.
