asked on

A new xenapp environment

If you were asked to independantly review the design and implementation of a new citrix xen app environment, what specific areas would you focus on from a risk perspective? Could you provide perhaps the more critical checks, or a top 10 essentials, and how you'd go about testing them. This can be from a hands on testing perspective, or to a request for evidence of testing performed by the implementation team.

Mutawadi:

>>2. XenApp servers locked down

Any specific guide or list of controls for the above?
Here you go mate.

Carls script: http://carlwebster.com/documenting-a-citrix-xenapp-6-5-farm-with-microsoft-powershell/

Oh one thing I am not sure Carl makes clear (he might, I haven't looked) is prior to running the script in PowerShell you need to import the XenApp 6.5 modules:

Add-PSSnapin citrix.xenapp.commands

And if you run it along the lines of:

From a command promt or the run dialog:
powershell.exe -executionpolicy unrestricted
Add-PSSnapin citrix.xenapp.commands
<change to directory the script is in>
.\script.ps1 >> c:\xenappdoc.txt

Open the txt file in Wordpad as Notepad screws its formatting up
