Application Source Root

Overrides the HREF attribute of the OSD CODEBASE element (for example, the source location) for an application. This enables an administrator or electronic software distribution (ESD) system to ensure that the application loads according to the topological management scheme. There are two acceptable formats for the application source root, URL and UNC.
The Standard URL format is: <:port><#fragment>
ApplicationSourceRoot is formatted following these rules:
- Protocol is mandatory
- User:password is not allowed
- Server is mandatory
- Port is optional
- Path is optional
- Query and fragment are not allowed
- Leading and trailing whitespace is stripped
- Trailing ‘/' inserted after ASR, if needed
So the resulting ASR setting for URLs must be of the form: protocol://server[:port][/path][/] Only the protocol://server:port portion of the OSD URL will be replaced.
For example, you can use RTSP://SERVER:554 or HTTP://SERVER:80/CONTENT

UNC format is supported. A standard UNC example is \\computername\sharefolder\resource or \\computername\content.
\\ComputerName is mandatory
May be an FQDN
May be an IP address
\Sharefolder is required
May be a drive specification (e.g. 'Z:')
\resource is optional
Leading and trailing whitespace is stripped
Trailing ‘\' inserted after path, if needed
So the resulting ASR setting for UNCs must be of the form:
\\computer\sharefolder[\resource][\]"


Supported on: At least Windows XP Professional with SP2
