Citrix Xenapp 6.5 Cloning

We have deployed Xenapp 6.5 farm 1 Data collector 1 Web Interface server and 1 Application hosting server (Session only Mode)  to begin with our xenapp  environmnet.

We want to install application on the Application Server and then be able to make that server as a golden Image .. It is possible to do cloning of some some in Xenapp 6.5 so that we do not have to install the applications manually everytime we need a new server

Sure, the process involved is documented here:

You can use any method you want: Ghost, Altiris, VMware templates, etc

Sounds like you need to use Provisioning Services, this way tiy can clone and server and boot it form the image..

But, I have to comment that preparing templates or using third-party cloning is no match to the productivity of a provisioning server.

It might be a bit complicated setting the provisioning server the first time - however, once set the productivity gained is worth the try.

Carl has an excellent article on setting the provisioning server!
