For XenApp 6.5 you will need windows 2008 R2 servers. Check this:

Before you start installing\configuring you need to procure the citrix license for comparison of license http://www.citrix.com/content/dam/citrix/en_us/documents/products/Citrix_XenApp_6.5_Comparative_Feature_Matrix.pdf

Hi,
Thanks for the help and above links. I have started reading and downloading now the trial xenapp 6.5.

Can you provide me video tutorials, if any. ?

Thanks.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Hi,
I building a test environment on Hyper-V with two server including Active Directory Domain and Citrix ( including all roles link web interface, license server and xenapp) on single a server.

I have a physical server with the following specs

Single Processor Core 2 duo
4GB RAM

I guess it is possible, right ?

Thanks

Ayman BakrSenior ConsultantCommented:
Even on a test environment it is better to separate your domain controller, DC, from your farm and your XenApp from the web interface & license.

You can have 3 VMs:
1 vCPU and 1 GB vRAM Web interface & license
1 vCPU and 1 GB vRAM DC
2 vCPU and 2 GB vRAM XenApp server acting as both Data Collector and Session host

On production please note that it is strongly recommended that your DC should not be on a VM. Moreover your Data Collector and Session host roles should be separated.

For now in the test  I allocated the VM's as follows

DC - 1GB RAM
Web Interface,License and XenApp - 2GB RAM

and will keep 1 GB RAM free for physical server.

Thanks

For testing purposes that's fine!!

As I said, in production it shouldn't be that way.

which is very quite useful

Thanks for your help.
