Can we aggregate Citrix Web Interface servers to enumerate apps from Citrix XML servers in multiple domains?

Hello there,

Can we aggregate Citrix Web Interface servers to enumerate apps from Citrix XML servers in multiple domains?

We main Citrix farm in AMER region in its domain and 2 x legacy domains in APAC region with Citrix farms in each of them. My question is can we aggregate WI servers in AMER region by adding Citrix XML servers from 2 x legacy domains Citrix Infrastructure, so that when user logs in he/she will get apps enumerated from respective Citrix farms based on his/her access to the Published Apps and Desktops.

And also configuring Netscaler to allow mutiple domain authentication in AMER region and APAC region

Domain trust is already established between these domains.

Please advise.

Thanks and Regards

WI is independent from domain or farm...
mostly i use WI within the DMZ without any contact except XML.
You can aggregate multiple Farms within one WI site or build multiple WI sites(one foe every farm).

Netscaler will be in DMZ and Citrix WI are located internally within Domain, therefore is my understanding correct that I need to add XML servers from these legacy domains and configure Netscaler for multiple domain authentication.

Please advise.

within netScaler you can build a authentication chain within a singe vServer ... if userauthenticatin with auth1 for Dom1 fails the NS will try it with auth2, and so on.
Would work but looks not good.
I would create multiple virtual Servers at the NS, add dedicated LDAP auth to every vserver and point every vserver to the correspond WI site (all Wi sites should be located at one WI-Server)
Question has a verified solution.
