Citrix Presentation Server and Group Policy


Hello, this is my first post in this community, so let me start with a brief introduction: my name is Juliano Maldaner, a product architect on the Presentation Server team. One of the areas I’m working on is the simplification of Presentation Server management experience for upcoming releases. We’re introducing some exciting new concepts and would like to hear your feedback!

Managing a Presentation Server farm requires much more than configuring Presentation Server components: Operating System and Application settings are as important. A successful environment must maintain PS, Operating System, and Application settings correctly configured and consistent across all servers in the farm. Maintaining this consistency throughout the farm life cycle is one of the major challenges for PS Administrators.

The Windows platform provides an outstanding tool to address these configuration management challenges: Active Directory and Group Policy. An overwhelming majority of PS deployments use Group Policy in some capacity. Integrating PS settings into GPO is possible with MFCOM scripts, but far from ideal. Most use GPO for Windows and Application settings, and Citrix management consoles for PS configuration. Because all settings must be synchronized, we realized that the management experience would be greatly simplified if PS Session Policies and Server settings were within Group Policy Objects themselves!
