What domain user account group should I use?

This is a new setup of CItrix Xenapp 6 server, in Windows 2008 AD domain. But, my management rejected my application to get a domain user account that is a member of domain admin group. They can give a normal domain user account, does this enough to setup the citrix in the Ad Domain? Or else, what group(s) should this domain user account be?

All the Citrix user accounts are domain users, and I intend to use pass-through authentication as well...

To install Citrix, a regular domain accunt that is also a local admin on the server is needed.

Balack, do you have rights to create users and groups in AD?

Sekar ChinnakannuSenior EngineerCommented:
please follow the step to create group and adding user into same group.

Goto Active directory users and computers
right click new->select Group
enter group name and choose the group type Security/Distribution

Once you create group, select the users who need access to citrix app
once you add users, publish the applicaiton and add the user group in that application to get access to citrix application.

Hi sekarc4u,

That meant this ad group is meant for those users that want to use citrix published application?

Does this also mean that I need a normal domain user account to setup citrix?

Hi all,

Just to confirm again, that meant I only need 1 common domain user account, as member of local admins group, to setup citrix. After, I need create an AD group, and put all domain user accounts that need to use citrix into this group. Any thing to add-on?
