Unpublish Application using IIS publishing source RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello everyone,

    I don't have a Management server in my infraestructure. I have build a Microsoft Appv IIS to stream and Publish apps via http following this guide http://goo.gl/OrW9M . Everything works ok, applications stream and publish fine to the clients. 

    I created a Group in AD called AcrobatReader and a added my user to this group. I set the proper permissions in the ACL (Acrobat Reader directory ) and my user gets the Application fine.

    Imagine that I want to unpublish the Reader app from this user. How can I do that? Do I have to do it manually? There is any way to do it automatically?

    How can I do that without a Management Server? Is it possible?

    Many thanks,

  • Hello,

    Apart from server-license and SQL-license required to host the infrastructure (and the time it takes to setup) - there is no additional cost for using the App-V Mgt server - its all about the amount of clients you have.

    See the planning and design guide for all infrastructure types (three + custom - which you have looked at);

  • The Management Server does not cost any extra in licensing - if you are licensed for App-V you are licensed for al components. If you have a Windows Server on which to run it, then you don't need any additional licensing.

  • What happens if you remove the user from the group and the client performs a publishing refresh?

  • Hi and thanks for your quick answer,

    That's exactly what I tried :) and when I remove the user from the group and I do a refresh the App still being published in the client. If I remove it manually when I do the refresh it works ok. 

    Maybe I am missing something or is not possible to do that?

    Thanks again.

  • Its an interesting issue - I've not used an HTTP publishing source before so I'm not even sure what you're trying to do will work. I presume you have good reasons for not using the Management Server or some other deployment method.

    It might be worth configuring a Management Server and viewing the differences in the app list XML received by the client.

  • Hi,

    the mainly reason is the price of the license :). With a Management server (App-V Full Infrastructure) it will cost more, isn't it?

    In my case I use a App-V Lightweight Infrastructure with only one streaming server.

    There are any other ways to publish and deploy appv-apps that I don't know except the one with the Management Server?

    Thanks,
