VMware App Volumes 2.xx – Setup App Volumes Capture VM

Welcome to my VMware App Volumes series. In this session I will show how I setup a vm to use for capturing AppStacks. As I already have a pretty nice Windows 10 vm created as image/template for my VDI’s, I clone this, change computername and add it to the domain.

Once the VM is rebooted, I log in with a user with administrative permissions and install the App Volumes Agent from the msi-file


The App Volumes Agent Installation Wizard opens, Next


I accept the terms, Next


Enter the App Volumes Manager address and port-info, Next


I confirm my settings, Install


Once the App Volumes Wizard completes successfully, Finish


I restart the VM in order to apply system changes the App Volumes Agent makes


After a reboot of the VM, it reports nicely to App Volumes Manager


Finally, I do “ipconfig /flushdns” and “ipconfig /release” before I shutdown the VM and create a snapshot
