App Volumes 2.12 – Provisioning Machine Must be Domain Joined?

App Volumes uses a provisioning machine to capture applications in order to create AppStacks. According to the App Volumes User Guide, “the provisioning of AppStacks must be performed on a clean base image…”

In my opinion, a “clean base image” implies that this machine is not domain joined and therefore not inheriting any group policies.

In earlier versions of App Volumes, there was an option when initially configuring or later reconfiguring App Volumes’ Active Directory integration to “Allow non-domain entities.” This is an option that I always selected in order to have a non-domain joined provisioning machine.

However, now in App Volumes 2.12, that option is no longer available.

I’ve yet to figure out an option to bypass having the provisioning machine on the domain. And there’s no mention of this in the release notes.
