Separate Servers for MGMT and PUB? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hey,

    I'm in the process of bolting together a new App-V 5 environment to replace our 4.6 environment.  Whilst I will have the DB located remotely, is there any key differences between consolidating the MGMT/PUB on a single server vs separating the 2?

  • App-V 5 clients will contact the Publishing Server, not the Management Server directly, so your design will depend on scale. You'll want a minimum of 2 Management Servers, but might require more than 2 Publishing Servers depending on network topology and number of clients.
