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.
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.
