I have a small database previously used by one person over Citrix. It will now be used by 10 people so  I have split the database into fe and be as recommended but don't know where to go from here?

If I load FE to users computers and BE to Citrix server how will it link to Citrix?

Should I leave FE and BE on the Citrix server?

In general, the best approach is to have a copy of the FE on each users workstation, all linked to the common BE.

Not sure how you link to a Citrix server ?  Is that something that is exposed in Windows Explorer ?

Thanks mx, Citrix is not exposed in Windows Explorer and they are set on a Citrix solution as users are in different states.

Well, I still have (only) one older app out in the wild ... wherein both the FE and BE are on a Windows Server system.  I can access the system via Terminal services, which of course brings up Windows Explorer on my remote screen.  Some of their uses access directly from desktop, others via TS.  

So I would guess it's something similar ?

Maybe I need to add a FE copy to each user directory on Citrix? Not sure unHelpDesk would be happy with this .....

Yes, the best practice here is to deploy the FE to each user's Citrix directory, so each user runs their own personal copy.  Users shouldn't share the same copy of the FE, as that can lead to a higher incidence of corruption.

If you need help with deploying the FE automatically, Tony Toews' AutoFEUpdater works with Citrix:  http://autofeupdater.com/
Or you can write your own VBScripts or BAT files to copy out the latest version when it changes.

Cheers,
Armen
