Citrix: Using Citrix Director in a MultiForest Environment
Citrix Director is capable of monitoring a XenDesktop and XenApp environment spanning a forest configuration where the users, XD Delivery controller, VDAs and Citrix Director can be located in same/different forests.
When Citrix Director interacts with these components located on different forests, there is a need for trust relationship configured between some of the components to not get into any failures on Citrix Director due to trust issues. This blog talks about the recommended trust relationships needed between some of the components of XenDesktop and XenApp and some other configurations needed for using Citrix Director in multiforest environment.
- User Forest refers to the forest where all the user accounts who use Desktops/Apps are located.
- XD DDC Forest refers to the forest where the delivery controller is located.
- VDA Forest refers to the forest where all the machine accounts of Virtual Desktop Agents are located.
- Director Forest refers to the forest where Director is located.
User and XD DDC Forests:
Create an outgoing and an incoming trust between the User Forest and XD DDC Forest with domain wide authentication.
