The Migration Manager for PSTs Application Streaming Wrapper (ASW) is designed for environments that utilize virtual application streaming to provide Outlook to users. Due to the way application streaming is performed, a typical agent approach cannot be used.
The ASW works as a wrapper for Outlook on an application streaming solution. Upon launch, it checks to see if a user is enabled for migration. If they are enabled, it quickly closes open connections to PST files associated with the user’s Outlook profile during that streaming session. Once that has completed, it launches Outlook and maintains the standard user experience without any of the PST files connected. There is no interaction required from users streaming Outlook, but their experience will be impacted as PST files will no longer be attached to their streamed Outlook instance. The ASW is frequently used in conjunction with a Share Scanner and Central Upload Agent to enable discovered files to be uploaded from shared resources without the use of a traditional Migration Agent.
