Citrix XenApp 4.5 Load Balancing Question

Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2013-11-11
I am creating a custom load evaluator, and applying it to each server, I am wondering though if I apply it to the servers does that override the load evaluators on the applications themselves?3

Citrix does not recommend that load balancers be applied to applications.  It makes troubleshooting that much harder.  If you have a LB applied to an application, then it wins.  Best Practice is to apply LB to servers - never to apps.
