Citrix App Layering Agent unattended installation
This article shows you how to script the Citrix App Layering Agent unattended installation and registration using PowerShell. Before continuing, I need to mention that the installation is not as straightforward as one might expect. I expected the installation to be a simple execution of the citrix_app_layering_agent_installer.exe including some parameters. Unfortunately, the underlying MSI does not work well for unattended installations, so I had to create a custom MSI transform file. All this is explained later on. The transform file has been added to this article and can be downloaded and used freely.
The simple fact is that if you want the Enterprise Layer Manager (ELM) to be able to automatically publish a consolidated VHDX file to your Provisioning Servers, you need to install the App Layering Agent on at least one Provisioning Server. In the article Citrix Provisioning Server unattended installation I explain how to automate your Provisioning Server installation and configuration. To continue to have a 100% automated installation, the Citrix App Layering Agent should be automated as well.
