Welcome to my VMware App Volumes series. In this session I will create an AppStack with drivers for the Contour Pointing Devices in it. Before I can start capturing a new AppStack, I power up the W10APPVCAPTURE-vm.
I first log into App Volumes Manager and go to Volumes, click “Create” in AppStacks
I give the new AppStack a name and description. The default path will work just fine.
Confirm Create AppStack, Create
Next I will provision my new AppStack to the W10APPVCAPTURE vm.
I verify the status as available, Provision
I Confirm Start Provisioning
My new Appstack is now ready for provisioning
Now I head over to my W10APPVCAPTURE vm and open VMware Remote Console. As we can see from the info-prompt, we are now in provisioning mode.
I download the driver package and launch the installer with default settings
I choose Yes to reboot the computer
When the vm is rebooted, I log in again and click OK in the info-prompt
I confirm Yes to finish and reboot the computer
After reboot, I click OK to the info-prompt and revert my vm back to most recent snapshot.
Now that my new AppStack is provisioned, I can assign it to users
I search the domain for my test user, Assign
I confirm Assign with “Attach AppStacks on next login or reboot”
If I log in to one of my desktop pools with a test-user, I now see that the new AppStack is attached and the drivers are available.
