Recommended Posts

Post in progress - while this line appears the post is not yet complete!!

 

This guide is based upon content available from Microsoft and others. This guide is designed to get you up and running quickly with Application Virtualization in a Lab Environment. For Production scenarios please refer to Technet for best practise recommendations. For news about updates to App V please consult their blog.

 

In this guide we will use a Windows 2008 32 bit server for our Application Virtualization installation. We will be installing both the Application Virtualization Management Server and Application Virtualization Streaming Server on this server. The server will be a member of a Windows Server 2008 domain with Microsoft DNS. The guide assumes that you have an SQL 2005 sp3 or newer server installed within the Domain.

 

 

 

Step 1. Create new Active Directory Security Groups

 

Perform the following on the Windows Server 2008 domain controller:

 

In Active directory Users and Groups, create two new Global Security Groups called

App-V-Admins

App-V-Users

 

In addition create a user called appVadmin and make that user a member of App-V-Admins

Step 2. Create the AppV database in SQL and assign a user as the DB owner

 

Perform the following on the SQL Server:

 

On the server that is hosting your SQL databases, create a new DB called appv and assign appVadmin as the db owner. If you cannot assign appVadmin as the db owner then add it to Logins within the Security section of SQL properties and then try again.

Step 3. Make App-V-Admins a member of Local Administrators

 

Perform the following on the APPv Server:

 

Note: At this point your Appv server must be joined to the Domain.

 

Log on to your Appv server as a Domain Administrator or as a user with Local Administrative permissions on that server and start Server Manager, expand Configuration, Local Users and Groups and click on Groups

 

Double Click on the Administrators group and click Add

 

type in App-V-Admins and if prompted enter the user/pass of a user with permission on the Domain

 

At this point you should now see your Domain Security Group App-V-Admins added to the local Administrators group on the appv server.

Logoff and then logon as the domain\appVadmin user (which we added as a member of App-V-Admins earlier.)

Step 4. Add IIS and other pre-requisites

 

Perform the following on the APPv Server:

 

Logon to the Appv server as the domain\appVadmin user. Start server manager and click on Add Roles

 

Place a checkmark in the Web Server IIS box, and accept the Add Features required for Web Server IIS prompt.

Step 5. Install the Application Virtualization Management Server

Accept the License Agreement

We will not be using Secure mode for this Appv server so just click next at the connection security mode screen

leave the default port

type app-v-admins as the Active Directory Security Group name for administrators of the appV server(or just type app-v and click next, then select app-v-admins from the choices available)

and enter app-v-users as the Active Directory Security group name for users of the appV server

 

Note: This is the group to which all users must belong for access to Microsoft Application Virtualization-enabled applications.

Accept the default content folder and click next

if you get Error 25019,

 

error 25109.jpg

 

go back into SQL management studio and make your appVadmin user a SysAdmin and try again
