User Workspace Management
In this next part of the App-V 5 series of posts I will show you a way to use RES Software products to create an App-V 5 infrastructure. Basically there are two major App-V 5 management solutions available; the App-V 5 Management and Publishing server and the Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2012 SP1
But what if you don’t have these management tools? Can you still create your App-V 5 infrastructure?
The answer is simple: yes you can. However, you will need to use some scripting and get yourself up to speed with the PowerShell commands for App-V 5.
This example will also consider the use of Mandatory profiles and local profiles that are spoofed and deleted at logoff. When using this scenario, you will lose the user related information about the App-V packages and you will need the App-V management infrastructure to restore this. We will use our own management infrastructure to accomplish this, using RES Software products.
- RES Workspace Manager 2012 SR3 or higher
- RES Automation Manager 2012 SR5 or higher
- An available file share for the App-V packages
- The App-V 5.1 Client installed on the Workstations or Servers
So let’s start with the PowerShell stuff. First we will need to create a script that will refresh our App-V related information for the user when the profile has been deleted.
This is actually a very simple script. Using your favorite text editor, create a file called publish_appv5_apps.ps1 and paste the following information in the script:
Get-AppvClientPackage | Publish-AppvClientPackage
Save the file and upload it to the RES Workspace Manager custom resources directory:
Now create an Execute Command with the following command line:
powershell.exe -ExecutionPolicy Bypass -NoLogo -NonInteractive -File %respfdir%\Data\DBCache\Resources\custom_resources\publish_appv5_apps.ps1

Year-End PC Tweaksby sunlvrisme
During the last few days of each year and the first few days of the new, when the normal press of events usually slows down a bit, those of us who use our PCs every day have a wonderful opportunity: We can use the slack time to perform a little simple PC maintenance in order to avoid some preventable PC headaches later on.
For example, hard drives have gotten so reliable that we tend to take their health for granted. But that can be dangerous, because we may miss the early warning signs of trouble. Instead, take a few minutes to check on your drive:
Open My Computer. Right click on the C: drive, and select Properties/Tools, and then click Check Now in the Error-checking status dialog area

Look beyond APM to unified performance monitoring — TechTarget
ORLANDO, Fla. -- The lack of interoperability among traditional performance monitoring tools means data centers must use -- and pay for -- multiple tools. But movement toward unified performance monitoring could change all that.
