How to Configure a Citrix XenApp 7.11 Server in Azure ARM
Since the release of Citrix latest XenDesktop/XenApp version 7.11 the software became supported for the Microsoft Azure Resource Manager platform. This means that your on-premises desktop delivery controller can now deploy machines in Azure ARM based on the MCS imaging strategy. Citrix already introduced this feature 2 months earlier to the Citrix Cloud, as they introduced the Cloud first release policy we had to wait. I personally think that all the new upcoming features will be released first to the Citrix Cloud after it go public to customers.
In this blog article I describe in 3 sections how you can create a IPsec VPN tunnel from a pfsense firewall to the Azure Public Cloud, the configuration of an Azure ARM Host connection and the creation of a Machine Catalog and Delivery group to final the XenApp Published Application/Desktop setup of Azure Cloud (ARM platform).
If you already have an active IPsec VPN to Azure and only want to know how to setup an Azure ARM Host Connection and a Citrix XenApp Desktop or configure Published Apps in Azure ARM, then skip to Step 13.
Note: This article is based on the Azure Resource Manager platform (v2), not the classic platform (v1).
