VMware App Volumes Automated Entitlement Replication


Deploying App Volumes in a multi-site scenario takes proper planning and consideration. You need to consider a lot of different factors that will influence the level of availability. For example, how quickly must your users be up and running in case the main site goes down?

VMware explains the two main options for an App Volumes multi-site deployment in the VMware Horizon 7 Enterprise Edition Multi-Site Reference Architecture. The second option covered in the Reference Architecture is to have two App Volumes Manager instances with separate SQL databases. The main drawback to this option is that the entitlements must be reproduced in both sites.

There might be other reasons why you also need this kind of setup, even with a single site (entitlement replication between different staging environments, for example). The configuration in the previous diagram is for two sites, but the following information applies to either a single-site or multi-site deployment.

A simple but very effective way of replicating entitlements is to use a PowerShell script. We want to provide the script to be able to do this. You can either run this script manually or program it through Windows Scheduler.


There are a few things you need for this script to work. Always keep in mind that this script can be run locally on the server, but also can be ran remotely, from an account with proper permissions.

  • Windows Management Framework 4.0
  • Microsoft .NET Framework 4.5
