APP-V Client Problem when using %SFT_SOFTGRIDSERVER% variable RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    we have a 4.5 Management Server and a 4.6 Client (MDOP2010). The Client is configured to use %SFT_SOFTGRIDSERVER% variable. Using rstp and Port 554.

    The variable has been placed as a system var. (as example: "SFT_SOFTGRIDSERVER=App-V_Servername")

    When refreshing the available publishing servers we get the following error in sftlog:

    Der Application Virtualization Client-Dienst, Version 4.6.0.20200, wurde gestartet. ----
    
    
    [08/23/2010 18:59:03:004 MIME ERR] {tid=964:usr=gke01460}
    Fehler bei der Anforderung des Desktopkonfigurationsservers für URL {rtsp://%SFT_SOFTGRIDSERVER%:554/} mit Header {Host: %SFT_SOFTGRIDSERVER%
    Content-Type: text/xml
    AppV-Op: Refresh
    } (Rückgabecode 12E0150A-00001003).

    } (Rückgabecode 12E0150A-00001003).
    

    Refresh works fine when inserting the servername or ip-address directly in clientconfig.

    Any ideas where to start troubleshooting?

  • You can't use a variable for the "Publishing Server" string. Use the Short Name, FQDN or IP adrress instead (in the Client registry, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\  [Wow6432Node]   \Microsoft\SoftGrid\4.5\Client\DC Servers  should contain a value for that. Or use the Client MMC.

    The variable can be used for streaming the actual package (the SFT file) itself.

  • Hello,

    1. Set it as system variable.

    2. Reboot the client

  • Thanks for the fast feedback, but we did that (setx/ WMIC).

    Even tried:

    • setting fqdn and ip (w/restart)
    • setting the var before installing the app-v client

    with no luck

  • Hello,

    The system environment variable is not set, as the name would then be the value of the system environment variable in the log file.

  • Hi Nicke,

    that's why I started this thread...

    the variable is set:

    Caption=<SYSTEM>\SFT_SOFTGRIDSERVER
    Description=<SYSTEM>\SFT_SOFTGRIDSERVER
    InstallDate=
    Name=SFT_SOFTGRIDSERVER
    Status=OK
    SystemVariable=TRUE
    UserName=<SYSTEM>
    VariableValue=GSD00009

  • What happens if you check everything with SET?

     

    What happens if you check under environment variables under system properties?

  • H:\>set s
    SESSIONNAME=RDP-Tcp#1
    SFT_SOFTGRIDSERVER=GSD00009
    SystemDrive=C:
    SystemRoot=C:\WINDOWS

    SFT_SOFTGRIDSERVER appears as SystemVar in System Properties.

    The client is a vmware virt client...

  • Does this issue affect only one system or all systems? If you manually configure the system variable via System Properties, does this make a difference?

  • May I ask why you are using the variable instead of the ApplicationSourceRoot? We actually recommend that you use this instead of a variable.

  • Hi,

     

    we have multiple xp clients experiencing this error.

    Steve: Could you please lead me to the official recommendation for how to set the content folder/ management server dynamically?

    If we do not use the variable, how do we accomplish the task of always assigning the local app-v components to the client?

    We have around 20 subsidiaries and 80% notebook users in the first scenrario. The upcoming scenarios host much more clients/ sites.

    Aaron Parker did a great write-up - which summarizes the whitepapers that Microsoft published, technet-articles and loads of general knowledge;

  • thanks for the input, that helped clarifying a lot.

    still, i have one more question.

    How can i set the publishing server dynamically in roaming szenarios when i cannot use active directory/policies?

    I would

    • set publishingserver via RegKey
    • set ApplicationSourceRoot via RegKey

    but have to define the actual value outside APP-V (Login script or similar), right?

    Thanks again for all your thoughts.

  • Hello,

    DNS-alias are popular, but since they are all registry keys group policy is an option;

    Of course, any deployment system could take care of this aswell... so yeah... pretty much anything that can alter registry keys.
