This PDF how-to document covers it all from end to end with step-by-step instructions.

Other Recommended XenApp Best Practice Guides:

  1. Every XenApp beginner should know how to fix Citrix user profile issues. Before you waste any time follow this guide CTX138198 and install Citrix Profile Management 5.0. Best practice is to install the same version agent on the XenApp server and in the Active Directory.
  2. You should also know how to clone XenApp virtual servers. This process works for Citrix XenServer Tools, Windows Server 2008 Hyper-V feature, and VMWare vSphere. Follow the planning guide CTX129761 and cloning instructions.


Don’t be afraid to take advantage of both worlds: Citrix XenApp and VMware vSphere are great products that work well together when properly configured!
