Using XenApp 6.0 policies how can I set the policies so that users log / use applications use their local XenApp servers first then only use other XenApp server applicatins if their local server is not availbe. Is there anyway for me to hide applicaton of sites so users do not get mixed up.
For exmaple Word Site 1, Word Site 2 and Word Site 3. Only site 1 would see word1 , site 2 would see word 2 etc...
Then when you publish word (or any application) you publish it to all three worker groups.
Then in the Delivery Services Console on the Load Balancing Policies node you will create a load balancing policy as follows:
1. You will filter it to apply to the users in one site - say site 1.
2. You will add all three worker groups; however worker group of site 1 should have priority 1
This way users in site 1, when starting word or any app, will be directed to least loaded server from worker group 1. Only when none of the servers in worker group 1 are available the user will be directed to other worker groups depending on the priority set; hence achieving high availability.
You will create two more policies (1 for each site) and filter each to the site's users. Site 2 should have worker group 2 as priority 1 and in the third policy site 3 should have worker group 3 as priority 1.
