How to setup Application Virtulization

//How to setup Application Virtulization

Windows Domain Controller · Windows Server® 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2 with Active Directory Domain Services and Microsoft DNS Microsoft Application Virtualization Management Server · Windows Server 2008 (32-bit or 64-bit) or Windows Server 2008 R2 (64-bit) · IIS 7.0 · Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 or higher · Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Express Edition o Note: Using SQL Server 2008 R2 Express Edition is not a supported configuration for a production environment of Microsoft Application Virtualization.

Microsoft Application Virtualization Sequencer · Windows 7 Professional, Enterprise, or Ultimate (32-bit or 64-bit) · NOTE: You should always sequence 32-bit applications on a 32-bit sequencing operating system (OS). This includes sequencing 32-bit applications for delivery to 64-bit clients. When sequencing 64-bit applications, they must be sequenced on a 64-bit sequencing OS and can only be delivered to 64-bit clients. Optional systems: Microsoft Application Virtualization RDS Client · Windows Server 2008 R2 (64-bit)

Microsoft Application Virtualization Streaming Server, Windows Server 2008 (32-bit or 64-bit), or Windows Server 2008 R2 (64-bit) All of the computers must be members of a common domain. You can use virtual machines on a single physical computer that meets the system requirements of this trial.

· Microsoft Application Virtualization Users Group: Microsoft Application Virtualization requires that every user account that accesses Microsoft Application Virtualization Management Server functions be a member of a single group for general platform access. You can use an existing group (such as Domain Users) or create a new group. Create a group named “AppV Users.

· Application Groups: Microsoft Application Virtualization associates the right to use an individual application with an Active Directory group. For the purposes of simplifying this guide, we will associate all test applications with the Domain Users group, even though many other options exist for production use such as creating separate AD groups for specific applications.

The computer must also be a member of the Active Directory domain that the accounts and groups were created in.

· Windows Server 2008 or Windows Server 2008 R2

· IIS 7 or 7.5 configured with ASP.NET (and required role features)

· Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Express Edition

Configure IIS 7.0 for Windows Server 2008

Add the Web Server (IIS) role with the following role services enabled:

· ASP.NET (and all required role services and features)

· Windows Authentication

· IIS Management Scripts and Tools

· IIS 6 Management Compatibility

Install Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 Express Edition

Note: Using SQL Server 2008 R2 Express Edition is not a supported configuration for a production environment of Microsoft Application Virtualization. The Express Edition was chosen to facilitate the setup of this trial environment only.

Note:

1. The wizard now has all the information it needs to perform the installation. Click Install.

The wizard will copy the necessary files, install services, and create a database as specified in the preceding steps. When the wizard finishes, the Microsoft Application Virtualization Management Console shortcut is displayed in the Administrative Tools group.

2. After the installation wizard completes, click No. Do not restart the server. If you click Yes by mistake, before continuing to the next step you will need to manually start the Application Virtualization Management Server service after the reboot.

Create a service dependency for the Application Virtualization Management Service

To avoid the need to manually restart the Application Virtualization Management Server service every time you reboot the server, you should perform the following steps to create a service dependency to delay the automatic start of the Application Virtualization Management Server service until the MSSQL$SQLEXPRESS service has started.

Note: This is due to the use of SQL Server Express residing on the same server as the Microsoft Application Virtualization server for this trial. This will not be necessary in a production implementation where full SQL Server is installed on a separate server.

Grant Execute permission on the SftMgmt.udl file for App-V Administrators group

If the account you will be using to administer the App-V Server is not a member of the local machine administrators group, perform the following steps to avoid receiving a C800 error when logging in to the App-V Management Console.

1. Open Windows Explorer.

2. Browse to C:Program FilesMicrosoft System Center App Virt Management ServerApp Virt Management Service.

Note: If you are using a 64-bit operating system version, the folder will be under C:Program Files (x86)Microsoft System Center App Virt Management ServerApp Virt Management Service.

3. Right-click the SftMgmt file and select Properties.

7. Click Next.

8. On the Action page, select Allow the connection and click Next.

9. On the Profiles page, accept the default values and click Next.

10. Enter a name and description for the rule in the corresponding boxes and click Finish.

11. Repeat these steps to add a rule for sghwsvr.exe.

Note: This step is necessary to allow the client computers to connect to the server using RTSP(S).

You now have completed the installation of the Microsoft Application Virtualization Management Server. If you encountered any errors during the process, please refer to the Troubleshooting section at the end of this guide.
