In Last post,we have seen how toInstall App-V 4.6 Management Server in windows Server 2008 .In this post,we will configure management server to publish the default application to the users.
Log into App-V Management server with Account that must be a member of Appv-Admins Group which we created in earlier post in Active Directory.
Click Start | Administrative Tools | Application Virtualization Management Console
In the App-V Management Console, click Actions | Connect to Application Virtualization System
Click on Browse and select the OSD Path for Default application which can be located from \\servername\content\Defaultapp.osd and same do it for Icon Path also as shown below.Do not use localhost or a file path containing a drive letter such as C:\Program Files\..\..\content.
You must enter the UNC path because the applications that are published to the users will be accessed by Users who have read access to it(content folder)
click on the Shortcuts Tab and select how you want to Publish the Default application to the users.
Click the Access Permissions tab, and confirm that the AppV-Users (who requires the application to be published) group is granted access to the application.
click Ok to finish the configuration how to publish the Default application to users.
By default ,the OSD(Open Software Description) file uses the secure connection protocol(RTSPS) which we is not used while installing Management server and we also required to check the management server name is correct or not.so we have to Edit the .OSD file from content directory.so clients can connect to this share and read the OSD file for management server information,etc. It should look like below and save the changes.
Now you have completed how to publish the default application to users.
