The primary focus in this phase is testing and stabilizing the virtual application deployment files. The high-level steps for stabilizing application virtualization as part of a desktop-deployment project are shown below.
To stabilize application virtualization
1. Test the client environment.
Validate that the client is properly installed and applications run properly when deployed to the client. Also, test that users’ data files are saved.
2. Test App-V Desktop Clients and application distribution.
Test the App-V Desktop Client deployed in Windows images. Also, test application distribution to ensure that applications are available as expected.
Note An important part of stabilizing an App-V solution for desktop deployment is ensuring security and availability. For detailed information about planning and designing a secure, highly available virtualization infrastructure, see the white paper App-V 4.5 Infrastructure Planning and Design Guide.
