Do I need Merchandising Server for Citrix MAC laptop/desktop receiver?

Hello,

I interested to find out if I need Citrix Merchandising Server setup in order to take advantage of MAC reciver and Dazzle on a MAC laptop/Desktop. I was able to run Dazzle on Windows laptop with Receiver ok. I have one application and about 27 physicians that will use Citrix, so I'm a little hesitant to install Merchandise Server at this time.

I also would like to know if I HAD to install Merchandise Server, could I install on same server that is running my XenApp applications? I understand I will need XenServer, but could I install XenServer and Merchandising Server on XenApp Server?

Thanks,

nimdatx

Let's deal with the architecture first before going into software and licensing.

So, to address the second half of your question:
"...but could I install XenServer and Merchandising Server on XenApp Server? "
The answer is yes, but you have it in reverse, meaning you can install Merchandising Server and XenApp on a XenServer.   First, you need to install and configure XenServer on a 64-bit machine (be sure to verify your hardware on citrix web site).  Once you have XenServer up and running you would then create a Windows Server Virtual Machine for both XenApp and Merchandising Server.

Yes, you need Merchandising Server for both Mac Receiver 1.2 and 2.0.

You don't really install Merchandising Server.  It is available as a virtual appliance for both VMware and XenServer.

Login to you mycitrix.com site and go to Downloads, Receiver and Dazzle.

Ok....dnsquru44 makes sense, however I already have XenApp installed and in prodection, I mean I still have some errors, but I've already deployeed. Any other suggestions on what I should do to get MAC receiver to work and get Merchandising Server setup? I've tested the windows receiver and Dazzle works good. Again I just need to make the MAC work with Dazzle.

Do you have Merchandising Server?   If not, download the XVA and put it into XenServer.

I don't have a Merchandising Server or XenServer. Would it be ok for me to utilize a separate physical server and install XenServer and upload XVA? I just want to make sure this is ok, even if I do not install my current XenApp server into XenServer?

Yes, you can use a separate server to install XenServer onto and then import the merchadising Server XVA.  You do NOT have to have XenApp on XenServer to use Merchandising Server.
