I have reluctantly accepted a project for a friend to implement citrix so they can access an application over the network. Currently they are running this software off of a laptop and that is the extent of their infrastructure. I want to keep this to one server so my question is this.
Can I install Citrix XennApp Fundamentals 6.5 onto a windows server 2008 standard R2 and use local accounts to authenticate?

 Or, can I configure windows server 2008 r2 standard to be a domain controller and run AD and install Citrix XennApp Fundamentals onto it and run all these services together. I have attempted to reach out to citrix to ask these questions and they will not get back to me with a direct answer. Your help is much appreciated.

question 2 , you cannot install xenapp on a DC

just a sugestion, but if you want to keep it all minimalistic, then you could install Xenserver/ESXi on the server machine, and then deploy 2 servers (2008) as vm.
Then setup one DC , and the other one xenapp

also make sure not to install all the xenapp roles on the same server (webinterface/licensing/application server)

ok, but please look into a good backup solution as well for the xenserver, because the free version does not have any VM backup included, so you will have to do it yourself using a script.

i use this as well, but modify it to your needs
