XenApp 6.0 - - List Published Applications Based on connecting IP

I just setup a new small XenApp 6.0 farm. I have one main site and one remote site. I have a XenApp 6.0 server at the remote and and would like to have my remote users log onto there local xenapp servers. I also both sites have the small exact applicagtions installed. This is needed for D/R purposes. Right now when users connect to citrix that see all of the applicatoin it both sites and users are getting confused as to which application to click on even though all applications are listed which site they are hosted from. Is there anyway to have XenApp 6.0 only display applicatoins that are host on server that are on the same subnet as the connecting users workstation?

i think this is not possible.
but you can create one frarm with multiple zones and use zone preferenz and failover.

you have one farm with 2 zones ? And you see the apps 2 times?
you should have configured 1 farm with 2 XML-sources at the webinterface/PNA-service-site.
-- not 2 farms with one xml source a time...

then you should see the apps only once.

... and yes with 2 Netscaler (one at every site) you also can do this.

sorry, i dont understand.
at site 1 are the same apps like at site2 ?
and all users should see all apps from their site?
therefor users from site1 see the same like users from site2 ?
But if on user click an icon he should start the app from his site and only if his site are down he start the same app from the other site?

What's wrong? Why should your users see the app 2 times?

... you have to publish the app only one time over all servers of all zones.
than you have to create 2 policies. setting the local as the default zone and the otther as backup zone.
bind this policies to the matching user-groups or ip-ranges.

... but "Zone Preference and Failover" are available starting within the "entreprise" edition.

dkotte...you have brought up a great point. If both of my xenapp servers in both sites mirror each other with applications and use the same farm there is no reason why I should be able to add a server from each site to the applications server list!!!... If the servers are in seperate zone the DC should pull from the local XenApp servers correct...

Thanks you so much for the input!!!!

possible this will work ...
but every Dc knows the other servers - only the load-data are missing over zone-borders.
which edition from xenApp do you use?

with enterprise-version you realy should use "zone preference and failover"
netscaler can help you to build redundancy over XML-services , WebInterface ...
But with one farm the best way ist to setup ZPF.
With 2 Zones and the matching product-edition (enterprise is OK) you only have to put the servers into 2 workergroups (for site1 and site2) create and assign 2 policies and ZPF are ready.
Simple and effective. i build this more than once.
