Adding Citrix Server Farm Resources

This section describes how to define a Citrix server farm as a resource. For information about providing terminal server access to Citrix servers, see Defining an Access Control Rule and Resource for Terminal Server Access.

To enable users to access Citrix resources, first configure the appliance with two Citrix agents: an ActiveX control that runs on Windows, and a cross-platform Java applet. Once the agent files are uploaded to the appliance, the appropriate Citrix client is automatically provisioned to users the first time they access a Citrix resource from WorkPlace. For details, seeManaging Graphical Terminal Agents. The appliance supports all desktop operating systems and applications that are supported by the Citrix clients. Small form factor devices are not supported.

For individual Citrix servers, you can specify a custom ICA file; these files contain additional configuration settings for the Citrix host.

Citrix server farms must meet the following system requirements:

  • Citrix XenApp

  • Citrix XML service must be running

When a user clicks a WorkPlace shortcut that points to a Citrix server farm, a separate WorkPlace window appears and displays the resources that are hosted on the server. The WorkPlace Web interface provides the services that users need to browse and work with applications that are hosted on Citrix servers in the farm. There is no need to deploy an additional Web interface. The user can browse these resources and click links to automatically launch applications. The Citrix applications appear in the Citrix client window.

To add a Citrix server farm resource

  1. In the AMC, navigate to Security Administration > Resources.

  2. Click the + (New) icon.

  3. Select Server farm from the dropdown list. The Add Resource - Server Farm page displays.

  4. In the Name field, type a name for the server farm.

  5. In the Description field, type a descriptive comment about the server farm. This step is optional, but a description can be helpful later when viewing your list of resources.

  6. Under Servers, click the + (New) icon.

  7. Specify the servers that are included in the server farm. Each server farm must include at least one Citrix XenApp server.

    1. In the Host or IP address field, type the host name or IP address for the Citrix XenApp server.

    2. In the Port field, type the number of the port through which the appliance connects to the XML browser service on the Citrix XenApp server. The default port number is 80.

    3. Click OK. The server is added to the list of servers in the farm.

  8. Click Save.
