Can users in on domain access Citrix resources (Published app and desktop) in another domain?

Hello there,

Can users in on domain access Citrix resources (Published app and desktop) in another domain?  What I mean by that: we have legacy domains that will be maintained to co-exist with new domain and domain trust exists between domains.

We have Citrix Infra in legacy domains (XenApp and XenDesktop) infrastructure offering Publish app, desktop virtualisation (XD) and Publish Desktop (XA). We would like to users from those legacy domains when moved to new domain should be able to access the Citrix resources.
What changes do we need to make in legacy Citrix infrastructure? I am thinking that of additional configuration required in legacy domains Citrix WI servers and Netscaler, to allow enumeration from new domain.

Is this correct? or any other additional configuration required?

Please advise.

Thanks and Regards

    You will need to enable trusts between your Domains.

    Trust between domains is already established. My question was regarding clarification required configuration on Citrix Web Interface servers? that I have mentioned in the question. Is this correct?

    at the webinterface you have to enable the second domain - if you restrict the usable domains before. If you preconfigure 2 allowed domains your users get a drop-down box.
    With a 2way trust the XenApp severs should have no problems.
    you should have a look to the storage-path for user-profiles and folder-redirection and GPO's also.

    Not really, you would still receive authentication issues as the users in the new domain would not be members of the remote desktop users group.
    You would need to create a Global  or Universal Group in the new domain and add the citrix users there, then add the global group to the local remote desktop users group either directly on the server or by using group policy applied to an OU on which the citric server belong.
