Microsoft App-V 5.0 Publisher Server same 4.6 Streaming Server? RRS feed

  • Question

  • We are upgrading from App-V 4.6 SP1 to App-V 5.0 SP1.  In the 4.6 environment, we had three streaming servers that would deliver streamed packages to end users via Citrix.  Is this the same function the publisher servers perform in 5.0?

  • Yes, but it depends on what you define as a streaming server in v4.6. A Management Server can also be a Streaming Server. App-V 4.6 has a separate Streaming Server that operates independently of the Management Server.

    In v5, the Publishing Server is separate from the Management Server, but cannot operate independently. Streaming sources for v5 can include HTTP and SMB, which could be co-hosted on the Publishing Server.

  • This should be fine. If the 4.x streaming is RTSP/RTSPS then there will be no direct conflict. If you are HTTP streaming 4.x applications, you will want to have 5.0 and 4.x services on different web server instances in IIS listening on different ports.
