Join Brien Posey for an in-depth discussion in this video Install App-V, part of Windows 10: Deploy and Manage Virtual Applications.
- [Instructor] Installing App-V server is a relatively simple process. I'm going to open up file explorer and I'm going to go to my C drive and I've created a folder called App-V Setup that contain the setup files that we'll use to install App-V server. So I'm going to go in the App-V server 5.1 folder. And I'm going to run setup but we have to run this as administrator otherwise server setup will fail. So I'm going to right click and I'm going to choose the Run as administrator option.
So now, App-V server setup loads and we just click on the install link. And I'm going to accept the license terms and click next. And we have multiple roles that we could install. We've management server role, a publishing server role, and a reporting server role. Now you don't necessarily have to install all these roles on the same machine. But I'm going to go ahead and do that for the sake of simplicity. So I'm going to choose the server management option, publishing server option and the reporting server option.
And we don't have to worry about the database option because we created the database in the previous video. So I'm going to click next. And now we're presented with the install location. I'm going to go with the default install location and click next. And now we're prompted to specify the SQL server. So I'm going to go with the local SQL server, and I'm going to use the default SQL server instance and I'm going to use the default SQL server database name which is AppVManagement.
So I'll click next. And then we have to the same thing for the reporting database. So once again, I'm going to use the local SQL server, I'm going to use the default instance of SQL server, and I'm going to use the default database name which in this case is AppVReporting. I'll click next. So now I'm taken to the management server configuration screen and the first thing we have to do on the screen is specify the active directory group or account that is going to authorized to manage App-V.
As you may recall, we created a couple of active directory account in one of the earlier videos. And we're going to use one of those active directory groups right now. The group we're going to use is possylab. Which is the name of my domain slash App-V admins. Then I come down to the lower section, we have to provide a website name and port binding. Now if you watched the firewall video, you'll recall that we opened three firewall ports. And those three firewall ports were intended for use with the management server, the reporting server, and the publishing server.
So the port bindings that I use right here have to match the ports we opened in our firewall. So for the App-V management service, I'm going to use port 8080 which I already opened in my firewall and I'm going to click next. Then I'm taken to the publishing server configuration, and we're going to do the same thing but we can't use 8080, we have to use a different port. So I'm going to use port 8081 and click next.
And then we have to specify a port for the reporting server. And for this one, I'm going to use 8082. And I'll click next. And we see a message telling us which features are about to be installed. So we're installing management server, the publishing server, and the reporting server. So I'll click install and now App-V is being installed. And App-V setup has completed successfully. So that's how you go about installing App-V server.
This course also maps to the corresponding domain within the Microsoft exam 70-696, Administering System Center Configuration Manager and Intune, and will help you prepare for MCSE certification.
