Citrix Talks “Multiple Consoles”

Part 2 of the series directs our attention to the common approach that “Citrix utilizes multiple management consoles and this is very confusing to the common IT admin staff to maintain and administer.”

This can be said to be true if you look at the entire solution that can be put in place:

  • XenCenter – Manage your XenServer environment, this is an independent console downloaded from an XenServer.
  • Desktop Studio – This is the XenDesktop management solution, including desktop pool creation, user/group assignment, pool management, policy management and so on. (MMC)
  • XenApp App Center – The most common tool to Citrix admins, the Application Virtualization management tool. (MMC)
  • Provisioning Services Management Console – This tool allows us to provision desktops and servers but is NOT required for XenDesktop.  That is another misconception. (MMC)
  • Web Interface Console – This is how we can manage our Web Interface components.  (MMC)
  • Desktop Director – This is the robust Helpdesk solution that is included in our XenDesktop solution. (HTML)

Wow that does seem like a lot management options, but hey lets really look in to how Citrix has built their management console technology.  Citrix understands that like with the desktop, not every user will require the same desktop delivery mechanism – not every admin or support person will require the same management tools.  Instead of building a proprietary management solution, Citrix has leveraged a great technology built by Microsoft (and all admins have access too), the Microsoft Management Console (MMC) technology.  As most administrators know already this is a great thing because you can customize how you administer not only your Microsoft infrastructure but also incorporate other solutions like your Citrix XenDesktop and XenApp tools in to a single pane.  So now you only have to open a single application to manage your entire infrastructure.
