Subject: Does Configuration Manager Native Mode Have to Use a Single CA Hierarchy?

Over on the System Center Configuration Manager Team Blog, Carol Bailey posted some great information on Native Mode and certificates including a couple examples of multi-CA hierarchies.  If this sounds like you then you'll definitely want to check this out:

========

We've seen this question come up a few times, and the simple answer is no – as long as the communicating computers have a trust in common, and the correct certificates are used, native mode works just fine.  This trust in common can use a single certification authority (CA) hierarchy or multiple CA hierarchies.  Because native mode is PKI-agnostic, this all happens at a lower level than Configuration Manager – we just need the PKI connection established before we can proceed with native mode communication.

App-V client generates "Could not connect to stream URL" error

Subject: App-V client generates "Could not connect to stream URL" error

Here's another issue uncovered by our very own Steve Thomas during the App-V 4.5 beta, this one involving a misleading error you might get if the client cache is full:

========

Issue: When an application is unable to load because the cache is full, you may receive the following error:

Could not connect to stream URL

Note that you may not get an error for the first application launch but you will for subsequent launches.

The sftlog.txt on the client will also show something along the lines of the following:

The package {E8DA6D01-2526-44D8-B7AA-FDD8095F5563} could not be locked in cache because there is not enough unallocated space (219872 Kb needed, 92160 Kb limit).

Could not set lock status to TRUE

[03/06/2008 18:31:10:611 SWAP ERR] {hap=1:app=AR8 Adobe Reader 8 (Vis.45) 8.06E01E:tid=EF0:usr=local_user}
Could not load app

There is not enough space in the Application Virtualization cache. Report the following error code to your System Administrator.

Error code: 4504B4-16D10E0A-0000E029

Note: You will have to have Verbose logging set on the client to observer this error in the SFTLog.txt.  The Verbose logging level on the client is set under the Properties of 'Application Virtualization' here:

Cause: Although the error code that appears in the customer-facing dialog box is incorrect, the correct error code appears in the log as 0000E029.

Resolution: The resolution is probably obvious but I'll go ahead and say it anyway.  You either need to remove apps that are locked in the cache or make the cache larger.  This is also set under the Properties of 'Application Virtualization' on the client:

Thanks Steve!

Last month I warned you that the SMSandMOM blog was being replaced by specialized Configuration Manager and Operations Manager blogs and the time for the switchover is quickly approaching.  This will be the last week I post new articles here but the site itself should stay for the foreseeable future, so go ahead and change your subscripts and bookmarks now.  You can subscribe to either or both by clicking on the graphics below:
