A new front end server or new streaming environment has been installed and configured, but the endpoints are pointing to the old server by reading the registry hive(s). How can a user migrate streamed applications from an existing server to a new server via the AppMgrCmd command?


Please follow the steps below:

  1. Open a command prompt and navigate to the Workspace Streaming Agent installation location: cd C:\Program Files\Symantec\Workspace Streaming\Bin
  2. Enter the command AppMgrCmd -map newservername to redirect all packages the client is currently streaming to now stream from the new server. NOTE: if migrating to a new environment the same packages must be present with the same GUIDs and be provisioned to the same user.
  3. Enter the command AppMgrCmd -sps newservername:80 to direct the client to look for pre-pop icons, pre-pop packages, and provisions from the new server.


  • AppMgrCmd -map is the parameter to migrate user provisions.
  • newservername refers to new streaming server hostname.
  • 80 is the default external communication port but may be different depending on the environment.
  • AppMgrCmd -sps is the parameter to change primary server.
