When using the App-V 5 native infrastructure you will need a Publishing Server. Clients ask the Publishing Server for their accessible applications.

Opening the Publishing Server website shows a XML based website that displays the applications.

I ran into the problem that when opening the Publishing Server website it shows the following:



<Message>Publishing metadata not ready</Message>



<ManagementServiceError xmlns:i=”http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema-instance”>

<Arguments xmlns:a=”http://schemas.microsoft.com/2003/10/Serialization/Arrays”/>







After walking through the configuration I found out that I had forgotten to add the Publishing Server to the servers list using the Management Console. Here is how to do that.

Log on to the Management Console using your browser
Click on Servers image
Click on Register New Server
Fill in the Publishing server name user DOMAIN\DNSName and a description image
The server is now added and useable image

Afterwards it is possible to open the Publishing website again and the XML site will show the accessible applications.


Can’t get the solution to work? Contact me and let me do the trick.
