Ran into an interesting issue while trying to migrate some App-V Applications from ConfigMgr 2007 to 2012 SP1. Most of the App-V packages migrated fine, however a few of them reported an error
“OSD file defines incompatible OS requirements”
After taking a look at the OSD file, according to this list all of the OS version listed were fine. After some troubleshooting I found that all the failing Applications had multiple OSD files associated. This led me to the solution.
If you have multiple OSD files as part of an App-V Application, you must have the same OS requirements listed in all of the OSD files. Once we fixed the compatible OS list, the Application migrated successfully.
I’ve just spent a frustrating 10 minutes searching bing/google for the list of the supported anti-virus programs that SCEP (System Center Endpoint Protection) can automatically uninstall. So to save my scalp for a future hair pulling, I thought I’d blog the list so I can find it quickly next time. Hopefully bing/google will index this post and save us all some time!
Automatically remove previously installed antimalware software before Endpoint Protection is installed
Endpoint Protection uninstalls the following antimalware software only:
One pain point with Configuration Manager 2007, was that when a package failed to distribute content to a distribution point after the retry count was exceeded, it was permanently stuck in a distributing state. There was no easy supported method to redistribute that package to a specific Distribution Point.
Now in 2012 we have the new option to Redistribute a package.
Open the properties of any application or package and click on the Content Locations tab.
From there you can either select a specific Distribution point or a Distribution Point Group. see Figures below
then Click on Redistribute
Click OK on the Warning and the package will then redistribute the content to that DP or DP Group.
