XenApp 7.5 Xendesktop 7.5 初体验之三安装服务器 Virtual Desktop Agent

概述

Xendesktop 7.X  以后的版本在架构上发生了改变,从原来的Independent Management Architecture (IMA)架构变成了现在的FlexCast Management Architecture (FMA)  ; 原来的IMA 架构下的Zone Data Collector ,Zone Preference Policies , Local Host Cache 等概念在新版本上不存在。当然 FMA架构上管理员在配置客户端以及管理应用发布上比之前要便利;XenApp 服务器也可以使用Machine Creation Service(MCS)技术来创建。新架构下,XenApp 服务器下除了安装应用之外,只需要安装一个Citrix 的Server Virtual Desktop Agent。

安装过程如下:

  • 首先,插入XenDesktop 7.5 光盘;
  • 双击运行;

  1. Question:On Environment > Configuration:(1) What does the the option “create a master image” do? I’m a bit confuse on this, does it mean it will create a snapshot image for the current VDA machine?(2) If so, does it mean you can deploy and replicate the image on multiple VMs for the purpose of load balancing?(3) As to 2, where does this master image being saved to?Thanks!

    • My explanation is about Create Master Image in Citrix Studio. Here, In the progress of install the VDA ,this step is just install the proper Virtual Desktop Agent according to its usage.

  2. Nemoto さん:Below is my answers for your 3 questions:1. The answer is Yes, Create a master image means the Delivery Controller will create a snapshot of this Virtual Machine , and this snapshot will be used as the master image . 2. If you need load balancing for the delivery of the Virtual Machine , you may consider to delivery virtual desktop with the Citrix Provisioning Service Solution.3. In the progress of creating Master image , the master image and snapshot will be cloned to every lung in the host.For more details and concepts, you may want to read the XenDesktop Planing handbook:http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX139331RegardsJack TuCitrix Senior Technical Supoort
