VMware AppVolumes 3.0 Deployment and configuration Part 1

I had setup VMware App Volume 3.0 environment in my lab last week and want to share my  experience.

VMware App Volumes 3.0 enables you to deploy applications to users. These users may be widely separated in space, be using different operating systems, or using different versions of applications. VMware App Volumes 3.0 also enables you to monitor application usage.

First thing to setup the App Volume is to deploy the App Volume virtual appliance.
System Requirements for App Voulme virtual appliance are below:
– vSphere 6.0U1 and above (previous versions of vSphere are not supported)
– 4 vCPUs
– minimum of 80 GB disk space
– minimum of 4 GB memory

Lets get started now with Deployment of App volume virtual appliance and initial configuration:

Quite straight forward process , simply deploy the App Volume OVA and follow the installation wizard.


After the deployment is done , Login to the App Volumes console using default “username: root” and “password: 123”. Once you login you will be prompted to set new pas sword.Subsequently you will be asked to configure the active directory.1112

Once done click on domain bind.  Once the binding is complete, you will need to add a super administrator user group for App Volume appliance from your active directory domain.13

Now you can login to App Volume web interface using the user group added in the previously.14

Next step is to integrate vCenter Server to the App Volume.15161718.png

Now you should be able to add vCenter server without any error.

In the Next Blog post i will cover the App Volume Agent installation and App Capture installation and configuration.
