How to configure Citrix Zone failover
Posted on 2013-11-05
Got a XenApp 6.5 setup as follows:
Two Zones both joined to the one farm
Each Zone has 20 servers in them
One zone is the production side
Other zone is located elsewhere and will be the DR site.
One application published and will want zone 1 servers assigned to it and zone 2 on failover
The environment will also use StoreFront 2.1 and the clients will have receiver 3.4 enterprise (we are using the legacy webservice feature in storefront 2.1). We will have 4 storefront servers 2 in each zone.
The simple way I guess to put this is we are doing an automated failover system, part of a bigger project, and what I am wanting is on failover to the DR the published application will start using the Zone 2 servers instead of the Zone One servers and that’s it.
How do you configure XenApp 6.5 (Enterprise) to do this?
(For info happy to use workergroups and policies and StoreFront config if that can help)
Thanks and help appreciated,
