Self-Provisioning client

Oct 08, 2015

To capture an application for import into AppDNA, use the Self-Provisioning client. The Self-Provisioning client runs on a separate machine from the machine on which AppDNA is installed. It can be installed on any type of machine (virtual, physical, or VDI).

The Self-Provisioning client can run in two modes:

  • Connected – In this mode, the Self-Provisioning client can access the location where AppDNA stored the client instruction file. If you are working in this mode, the administrator will have sent you a link to the client instruction file that looks something like this:
    \\server name\share\25d00eda-8203-4472-9ebf-0fb25107485a\appcapture.desc

    Where server name\share is the first part of the path to the instruction file.

  • Disconnected – In this mode, the Self-Provisioning client cannot access the location where AppDNA stored the client instruction file. If you are working in this mode, the administrator will have sent you (perhaps by FTP) a package file that has a name like this:
    installation file name.appcapture_pkg

    Where installation file name is the name of an application installer that is also provided.
