Do Citrix provide any useful user acceptance testing frameworks/baselines for new citrix xenapp/desktop implementations to run through before "go live"? If so can you provide details, if not can you provide perhaps a top #10 useful tests for the users to run and record findings on?

As a general rule how long before a xenapp/desktop project goes live will a test environment be built and UAT performed, as presumably the testing may flag up issues that need to be resovled prior to go live? Is there any best practice in this area, or general project plans?

it really depends on the applications you are using, and normally basic tests for applications, that have been installed, do they function as they would on a normal desktop PC.

4-6 weeks, we usually take, but this is for a Concurrent User Project between 1,000-5,000 users. (426 published applications)

So is that 4-6 weeks before go live the testing takes places, or 4-6 weeks that you build the system prior to go live, if so when does the UAT take place in that 4-6 week period?

4-6 weeks UAT testing. (depends on number of applications, and users).

Proof of Concept
UAT Testing
Re-work before Production
Production (slow ramp up of users)

New applications take 1-2 weeks for UAT.
