What hooks into vCenter and where for XenApp and XenDesktop environment hosted VMWare hypervisor?

Hello there,

What hooks into vCenter and where for XenApp and XenDesktop environment hosted VMWare hypervisor? WE have XenApp 65 farm using Citrix Provisioning services on VMWare hypervisor and XenDesktop 56 farm using Machine Creation Services and VMWare hypervisor.

Please advise.

Thanks and Regards

XenDesktop broker hooks into vCenter, for deployment of VDI desktops.

XenApp is a RDS/Terminal Server application for a server.

If using XenApp (even with Vdisks) there is no hook into VCenter other than that the VCenter needs to assign a static mac address. Otherwise the XA servers won't start up.

Thanks @Andrew Hancock. For XenApp 6.5 farm we use VM template  to spin up XA servers by streaming VHD image, so what gets hooked tovCenter in this environment.
