On a recent project for my employer, Choice Solutions, I needed to setup high availability for the XenApp/XenDesktop databases. The customer wanted to use Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Standard and I was tasked with implementing the new Basic Availability Groups. This article details the steps I took to implement Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Standard Basic Availability Groups for Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop 7.9.

I would like to thank Choice Solutions for allowing me the time to lab this process, document it and now share it with the community.

The SQL database provides the foundation for all configuration information in the XenDesktop Site. Configuration, Logging and Monitoring information are stored in the databases. The databases contained within a SQL server infrastructure are crucial to the continuous operation of the XenDesktop architecture and if it fails, affects ranging from loss of the ability to administer the XenDesktop site to the inability to connect to XenDesktop virtual desktops. SQL Server can be made highly available through a number of technologies.

Citrix supports various levels of database high availability for XenApp/XenDesktop 7.x:

  • SQL Server database mirroring
  • Using the hypervisor’s high availability features
  • SQL Clustering
  • AlwaysOn Availability Groups
