Remote Database Creation for App-V 5 SP3

April 11, 2015

AppVDBThe new version of my PrepSQL tool now supports the changes that have been introduced with ServicePack 3 for App-V 5. You can silently create the App-V Management Database and Reporting Database on remote SQL servers, on SQL server clusters or in scenarios, where you can’t run App-V’s setup wizard on the SQL server machine. This new version also allows to upgrade the databases from a pre-SP3 version. It already includes the fix for a known error with Microsoft’s original scripts.

With PrepSQL for App-V 5 SP3 you can

  • Prepare the App-V Management database and the App-V Reporting database without running black-boxed executables on your SQL servers
  • Prepare the the App-V databases for using in clustered SQL server environments
  • Give your SQL Administrator the confidence to only make comprehensible changes to the SQL server
  • Fully automate the preparation and even execution of App-V’s .sql scripts
  • Leverage log files to identify potential issues while preparing the .sql scripts
  • Allow to use a name for the Reporting database that is not limited to a length of 20 characters
  • Update older App-V databases to the SP3 format
  • Skip the manual correction that causes MS’ scripts to fail
