Xenapp Delivery Groups
Posted on 2014-09-23
I am trying to get a better understanding on how to delegate my applications using xenapp 75. delivery groups.
I currently have built 6 VDA servers, what i need to know is how to have the applications load balanced.
I will use outlook as an example. I have installed outlook on 2 vda's. At first what I did was create 2 delivery groups and attached 1 vda to each DG. Using Powershell and the add-brokerapplication script i successfully published outlook to both DG's. This now gives me LB for outlook as I understand. After some thought I dont want to have a massive amount of DGs to facilitate LB within them.
Now my thought is to attached the 2 vda's to 1 DG, But how do I know if the outlook app will be Load balanced as it was using 2 separate dg's. I cant very well publish both outlook version to the same DG right. Otherwise I would get 2 icon copies no? I just want 1 Icon for each application but want to use numerous servers within the DG.
That being said I have numerous application I need to do this for. Using outlook as an example only. Or by default if the app is available on 2 or3 or 4 vda's within the DG does the application get LB'd?
Any offers of advice would be great..
