    • App- Integrating XenApp 6 with Microsoft App-V and System Center Configuration ManagerStephan PfisterCitrix Certified InstructorMicrosoft Certified App-V Trainer 1
    • Session objectives Understand the Microsoft Application Virtualization requirements and System Overview Understand how to integrate System Center Configuration Manager with XenApp 6 Understand how to integrate Microsoft App-V with Citrix XenApp Understand which application delivery mechanism to utilize based on a given scenariowww.digicomp.ch 2
    • Understanding the components ofCitrix Application Virtualization
    • Citrix Streaming Components
    • Application Streaming CommunicationProcess
    • Known limits for profiling ApplicationsSome applications cannot be profiled, including: Applications that contain drivers, such as Adobe Acrobat Professional Microsoft Internet Explorer 64-bit applications Microsoft Data Access Components (MDAC) .NET Framework
    • Application Delivery MethodsThe following delivery methods are available: Accessed from a server Streamed if possible, otherwise accessed from a server Streamed to client
    • Understanding the components ofMicrosoft Application virtualization
    • Desktop Optimization Pack -Application Virtualiztation for Desktops
    • Technical Overview
    • Integrating XenApp 6 with MicrosoftSystem Center ConfigurationManager
    • Working t(w)ogether
    • When use what?Citrix Application Streaming Citrix Application VirtualizationBased on 5 core components• Publishing and Management Infrastructure• Application Isolation• Application Streaming• Receiver Plug-ins (Citrix Receiver• Self-service enterprise app store (Dazzle) „Is Citrix ending its development of their native application virtualization capabilities and going with App-V instead?“
    • "Why would Citrix want tosupport App-V, and what doesXenApp enable me to do withApp-V that I cant dootherwise"?
    • App-Pro‘s using App-V Integration App-Publish App-V packages directly from XenApp as „Dual Mode“applications• App-V sequences can be published using the same workflowsand wizards as all other applications managed through XenAppManage App-V client plug-in using Citrix Receiver App- plug-• The Microsoft Application Virtualization Desktop client can nowbe managed and delivered as a plug-in for Citrix Receiver App-Subscribe to App-V packages using Citrix Dazzle• With Citrix Receiver users gain self-service access to applicationsthrough an enterprise app storefront
    • Demo XenApp 6 Connector for System Center Configuration Managerhttp://www.citrix.com/tv/#videos/2380
    • Application Delivery Using Configuration Manager 1 Admin uses SCCM Console to configure application delivery SCCM Server and publishing XenApp Web and Services Site 2 New XenApp connector facilitates seamless delivery of installed and virtualized apps withCitrix zero user disruptionReceiverand Dazzle 3 User subscribes to XenApp Servers app and executes hosted or virtualized apps App Hub Storage for XenApp and App-V packages
    • SCCM delivers apps toXenApp servers to makethem available tounmanaged devices
    • Installed on eachXenApp6 server•Microsoft SCCM Agent•XenApp PCM Agent•App-V client for RDS
    • XenApp Connectoruses PowerShellRemotingto communicate with•SCCM site server•XenApp farm server•PCM Concentrator
    • XenApp DataConnector syncsSCCM sitedatabase andXenApp farmdatabase
    • XenApp Connector for Config Manager 2007 R2 Includes two components• XenApp Data Connector • Communicates with both XenApp and SCCM for application delivery• Configuration Manager Console Extension • Inserts XenApp-specific configuration options into the SCCM Console
    • XenApp Data Connector internals • Contains 3 task scheduled PowerShell scripts • Scripts used to process Configured using data from SCCM site, Connector XenApp farm, PCM farm Config wizardC:C:Program FilesCitrixXenApp Connector for ConfigMgr 2007Connector FilesCitrix 2007 XenApp Connector Configuration tool Executed using Script Task location Schedule r Administrative tools > Task Scheduler
    • XenApp Data Connector internals (cont.) Synchronization script• Syncs SCCM data and XenApp farm data stored in separate databases XenApp Data Connector SCCM siteXenApp 6Farm Reads Writes XenApp and Config Mgr Synchronization script •Syncs XA farm data such as XenApp worker groups and XA server folder membership •Syncs daily by default
    • XenApp Data Connector internals (cont.)Publication and advertisement scripts IMA service XenApp Data Connector SCCM site serverXenApp 6Farm Reads Writes Program and Package advertisement script Publication script •Program and Package advertisement script: •Orchestrates software distribution process to XenApp servers XenApp Power and •Communicates with PCM Concentrator to drain Capacity online servers and bring offline servers online Management •Publication script: writes published app data to XenApp Concentrator farm
    • Configuration Manager Console ExtensionAdds XenApp-specific options• “Programs for XenApp” node • Used for simultaneous app delivery and publishing to XenApp servers• “XenApp Publication” node • Used to publish apps to XenApp servers App delivery App publishing
    • Configuration Manager Console Extension (cont.)XenApp-specific options added XenApp specific collection and sub-collections• New SCCM “Collections” • Citrix XenApp Farm, Servers grouped in folders and worker groups • Worker groups and folders must be configured in the Delivery Services Console
    • Application published in Delivery Services ConsoleApplication properties• Apps appear in ConfigMgr folder in the Delivery Services Console• Apps are published to individual XenApp servers and not to worker groups
    • Integrating XenApp withMicrosoft App-V
    • App- App-V with System Center Configuration Manager R2• For XenApp server- App-V Sequencer hosted application Configuration Manager Site delivery only Server• Apps streamed from Configuration Manager Distribution Point Configuration Manager Distribution Point
    • App- App-V without System Center Configuration Manager App-• Requires App-V Management server, App-V Sequencer Streaming server or web server• Integrate with XenApp for • Application publishing using XenApp console App-V Client • Application access App-V Streaming using Web Interface Server or IIS Web Server or Dazzle
