  • Hello,

    You can look into robocopy or distributed file system.

    See more regarding DFS;

  • We already have DFS to copy the files over, I was referring more within the Application Virtualization Management Console. You know how after you import an application you can copy it over to another site, well I have to do this ALOT, and the copy process within the APPV console is tedious I was wondering if someone had something that made that process easier.

  • Hello,


    Do you mean that you have 5 different app-v servers within the same corporation installed into 5 different databases? And manually import the application into the different databases?

  • Hello,

    OK, ehm.. 

    There is a general script available at Denamik for importing applications that could be worth looking into.

  • Depending on the network links, a semi-centralized infrastructure might be applicable:

    - Let all users publish (=refresh the application list) from one and the same server within a quite central location [App-V management Server]

    - Let all clients load (=stream) the packages/SFTs from their location. [App-V Streaming Server]
