Publishing Servers get automatically removed from App-V v5 clients

Applies to: App-V 5.0 for Remote Desktop ServicesApp-V 5.0 for Windows Desktops


You may notice that Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V) Publishing Servers are automatically removed from a Microsoft App-V v5 client by System Center 2012 Configuration Manager.

More Information

App-V v5 clients can be managed by one or more App-V v5 Servers, or by System Center 2012 Configuration Manager Service Pack 1, but they may not be managed by both at the same time. As such, when Configuration Manager deploys a virtual application it also removes the Publishing Servers from the App-V v5 client. 

NOTE Configuration Manager does not remove the previously published Virtual Application Packages.

This behavior is by design.
