Recommended / Best Practices Restart Procedure for Citrix XenApp Environment
Posted on 2012-04-02
I have an environment I manage which is running a 6-VM server Citrix setup with the following:
1x - CAG
1x - Web Interface
1x - Data Collector
3x - XenApp 6.5 Servers
With regards to restarting the servers, what do you guys recommend as the best practice?
I would firstly out of business hours shut them all down and typically I would start them up in the following order:
1. Start the CAG, Web Interface and Data Collector.
2. Start the remaining 3 XenApp servers.
Would like to know whether my approach is the correct / best practice approach or whether I am doing it backwards?
What do you guys recommend?
