XenClient Enterprise Engine:

  • Select Compatible PCs – business-class PCs with Intel components (CPU, GPU, networking) and 7200+ RPM drives preferred.
  • Ensure sufficient memory – 4GB recommended; 2GB is the minimum; more memory means better performance.
  • Install PV drivers – they are critical for local VMs for USB support, networking, and good performance.
  • Check BIOS settings – make sure that Intel VT-x is turned on and Nvidia Optimus (if available) is turned off.
  • Use Windows VMs – Windows 7 or XP work best. Linux virtual machines are primarily for experimental use.
  • Manage Networking through XenClient Enterprise – Wireless/wired networking is managed through the XenClient Enterprise
  • Use Ctrl-Down-Arrow – this is used to access the XenClient Enterprise Engine launcher and settings.
  • Connect to XenClient Enterprise Synchronizer – the greatest value of XenClient Enterprise is centralized management – enabled through XenClient Enterprise Synchronizer. 

XenClient Enterprise Synchronizer:

  • Use Win 2008 R2 64bit – Win 2008 R2 64bit (Standard, Enterprise, or DataCenter) is required to run the Synchronizer.
  • Use Hyper-V Role for publishing – Hyper-V version 6.1 or higher is required for publishing (even with an ESX installation).
  • Ensure sufficient Hyper-V permissions – Being in the local or domain Administrators group is not sufficient.
  • Allocate sufficient storage & memory – We recommend 200GB disk and 8GB RAM as a baseline.
  • Build a clean VM & avoid P2V conversion – Clean Windows VM images perform best.
  • Build VM images incrementally – start with a base Windows install with no applications (including antivirus software).
  • Confirm Active Directory Settings – Use AD Explorer to facilitate the configuration; see the Synchronizer Installation Guide for more information.
  • Clear your browser cache if needed – Clear your browser cache and restart the browser if you see anomalies in the Synchronizer.
  • Use IE 8 or 9 with required components – Microsoft .NET Framework 2.0 must be installed and RDP ActiveX control enabled
