Here are some short instruction, how to install XenApp/XenDesktop 7.5 Delivery Controller – the heart of FMA architecture.
Let’s start. Open installation ISO and start “AutoSelect.exe”.
One more important think. Installation of XenApp and XenDesktop no different to anything.
Select “Delivery Controller” to install.
Because we are making one server installation leave all options as they are.
We will also install SQL Server locally.
We are done. All components are installed.
Now we are ready to configure XenDesktop site. Go to menu start and select Citrix Studio.
In console select “Deliver applications and desktops to your users”.
In this wizard we will configure our site. Let’s call it “CitrixSiteTest”. We will create fully configured environment.
We have installed SQL Server locally, so now we can select it.
If you have already Citrix License Server with licenses you can select it right now. If not, you can use “30-day trial” licenses.
In this configuration we will be using “stand-alone” virtual machines without any provisioning technologies.
So select “No machine management” in “Connection type” option.
Also for App-V right now select “No”.
If everything is ready we can create our site.
The last tests …
… and we are good to go.
