How to Configure the Client for Disconnected Operation Mode

Updated: September 24, 2009

Applies To: Application Virtualization

The disconnected operation mode enables the Application Virtualization (App-V) Desktop Client or the Application Virtualization (App-V) Client for Remote Desktop Services (formerly Terminal Services) to run applications that are stored in the file system cache of the client when the client cannot connect to the App-V Management Server.

ImportantImportant
In a large organization where multiple Remote Desktop Session Host (RD°Session Host) servers (formerly Terminal Servers) are linked in a farm to support many users, using a single App-V Management Server to support the farm represents a single point of failure. To provide high availability to support the RD Session Host farm, consider linking two or more App-V Management Servers to use the same database.

To enable disconnected operation mode

  • Set the following registry key value equal to 1 to enable disconnected operation mode:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SoftGrid\4.5\Client\Network\AllowDisconnectedOperation

To set a time limit on disconnected operation mode use

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SoftGrid\4.5\Client\Network\LimitDisconnectedOperation

  2. Set the following registry key value to the number of minutes you want to limit disconnected operation mode. The valid range of values is 1–999999. The default value is 90 days or 129,600 minutes.

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SoftGrid\4.5\Client\Network\DOTimeoutMinutes

To configure the Client for Remote Desktop Services for disconnected operation mode

  1. Set the following registry key value to 1 to enable disconnected operation mode:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SoftGrid\4.5\Client\Network\AllowDisconnectedOperation

  2. Set the following registry key value to 0 (zero) to allow unlimited use of disconnected operation mode:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\SoftGrid\4.5\Client\Network\LimitDisconnectedOperation

  3. Ensure that all packages are preloaded into the cache to improve performance.
