Preparing App-V Management and Publishing Server to deploy applications

This post has already been read 9226 times!

In my last post here I went through the procedure of installing the App-V 5 Full Infrastructure.  I will now run through the steps required to prepair your servers to deploy applications.

Step 1 – Firewall Rules

You need to set up the firewall on the server to allow incoming connections for the ports you defined when setting up the management, publishing and reporting server.  I tend to just disable the firewall but it is up to you how you go about this.

Step 2 – Create Application Content Share

Create a directory on your network that the App-V Server and User can access.  This will be the central location for housing your .appv packages.

Step 3 – Sequence and Application

I will assume that you are aware of the process to sequence an App-V application, if not then follow my post here.

Step 4 – Publish your application

Once you have your sequenced application completed and saved on the content share you created above then follow these steps to publish the application.

Click on Add or Upgrade Packages

Click on Add or Upgrade Packages

Type in the path for the .appv file created when sequencing (This will be on the content share)

Type in the path for the .appv file created when sequencing (This will be on the content share)

Import The Application

Import The Application

You now need to publish this application and assign a connection group.

05

Right click the app and select Publish

Add a new connection group, rename it to Notepad ++ and publish it (Right click and publish)

Add a new connection group, rename it to Notepad ++ and publish it (Right click and publish)

Click on AD Access and then Edit

Click on AD Access and then Edit

Put your domain\group in click check then grant access

Put your domain\group in click check then grant access

On connected Packages add Notepad++ click on the arrow and apply

On connected Packages add Notepad++ click on the arrow and apply

Thats it – Notepad++ is now published and can be accessed from any machine with the App-V client installed.

Hope this was useful.

Enjoy,

    Hi Bretty,

    It is very well written blogs. Would you please provide some step by step instruction how to configure App-V client 5.x on the PC. I am having problem to set up App-V client properly. I can publish apps with PowerShell but it does not work when I try to deploy software with App-V Publisher.

    Thanks.
