This is a question from an AppV newbie.
I am attempting to install AppV on a virtualized Windows 2008 R2 64-bit server. I made the server part of the AD domain, which is a Small Business Server domain. I had lot's of trouble getting the AppV Management Server component to install. I was following the implementation blog at http://blog.augustoalvarez.com.ar/2009/ ... vironment/
which seems pretty clear. I took a fresh install of 2008 R2, added the IIS role with all the management services, downloaded a current copy of SQL 2008 Express, and felt that I had met all the base requirements. I was able to log in to the SQL Management Studios and attach to my the SQLEXRESS instance. However, when I got to the installation page that connects to the database, my local instance didn't show in the list. Only when I chose port 49256 with my server name of APPV\SQLEXPRESS did the application move ahead. Then at the end, I got the 25109 error. I read with disappointment that a limitation of SQL Express 2008 is that it does not use the fixed 1433 port, and instead uses the 49256 port. I put the SQLserver.exe and both 1433 and 49256 as open port exceptions in the firewall. SQL seemed to be working OK, but I couldn't get the installation program to finish using this instance.
So I decided to start over using the SQL 2005 instance in the SBS server. That completed successfully. I rebooted and started up the App Management Console. It won't connect. I'm on the "Connect to Application Virtualization System" panel, and I've tried all kinds of names for the Web Service Host Name. Since the server name is APPV, that seems like what should go there. I'm unchecking the "Use Secure Connection" and trying to use the Domain Admin account credentials (which is what I logged in with). I get an error "Unable to log into the Application Virtualization System. Invalid user name or password. Error Code: 0000C801." I've tried using the Specify Windows account with the same result.
I've tried looking around in the IIS Manager, but since I'm new at the AppV process, nothing jumps out at me.
When I look at the file sftmmc.log, I see the results of my unsuccessful connection attempts. Here's a sample:5/25/2011 11:53:03 PM http://APPV/
ManagementConsole.MCException: The remote server returned an error: (401) Unauthorized. ---> System.Net.WebException: The remote server returned an error: (401) Unauthorized.

at ManagementConsole.ManagementSession.connect(String urlPrefix, NetworkCredential cred)
--- End of inner exception stack trace ---
So, I'm stuck. Somewhere I saw something in a log that I can't find right now that gave me the impression that I might be having this problem because the SQL instance is on one server (not APPV) and the IIS installation is on this server. It's probably something simple, or maybe I just need to trash the VM and revert to my "fresh" copy.
Does any of this make any sense to you AppVirtGuru-s?
