Whilst attending Citrix Synergy this year and chatting to some of my colleagues I got involved in a conversation around using your Google or Gmail account to log into your Citrix Unified Gateway and then being able to launch your Apps and Desktops without having to sign into AD and just using your Google account.  This really sparked an interest with me so I decided to build it out in my lab.

I was shown this article by Eric from xenappblog.com

and I have to say – its great! It does however use XenApp 6.5 for the Kerberos Constraint Deligation (KCD).  This was an issue for me as I don’t run XenApp 6.5 in my lab and didn’t really want to spin up a new environment just to test.
