Delivering Citrix XenDesktop from Microsoft Azure using Azure Resource Manager
Last week, Citrix announced support for Microsoft Azure Resource Manager in XenDesktop. As of now this feature is only available in Citrix Cloud. Because Citrix has the common policy that features comes in Cloud first then on the on-premises deployment.
Using Azure Resource manager the setup has been simplified a lot! My lab is quite simple to setup, we need an Active Directory setup, an Windows Server 2012 R2 with the cloud connector installed. We also need a Windows Server 2012 R2 with the RSDH role installed with the VDA agent.
The VDA agent can be found and downloaded from here – https://www.citrix.com/downloads/citrix-cloud/product-software/xenapp-and-xendesktop-service.html
So we also need a Citrix Cloud sub or a trial, when doing into the management console and into connection we will now have Azure as a Connection Type.
