Implementing Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 and CentOS7 Linux with Citrix XenDesktop 7.11


As many of you know, I have a few documentation scripts freely available on my site. One of the scripts is for Citrix XenApp/XenDesktop 7.0 through 7.7. Citrix introduced so many changes in version 7.8, 7.9 and 7.11 (and who knows what changes are coming in the future?) that I had to fork (to use a GitHub term) the script. Now there is a separate script for XenApp/XenDesktop versions 7.8 and later. I am working very hard to make sure I document all the details available for all the possible Machine Catalogs and Delivery Groups. Recently Citrix released Linux Virtual Delivery Agent (VDA) 1.4. I was curious what the differences were when a Linux Machine Catalog and Delivery Group are added to Citrix Studio. Would my script handle the Linux information or would I be in for some work to make my script handle Linux. Time to find out.

I know how to spell Linux and that is as far as my Linux knowledge went. First, I had to see what versions of Linux the VDA supported. Off to see what the Citrix documentation stated.

The following Linux distributions are supported by the Linux Virtual Desktop product:

  • SUSE Linux Enterprise:
    • Desktop 12 Service Pack 1
    • Server 11 Service Pack 4
    • Server 12 Service Pack 1
  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux
    • Workstation 6.8
    • Workstation 7.2
    • Server 6.8
    • Server 7.2
  • CentOS Linux
