Xenapp Delivery Groups


I am trying to get a better understanding on how to delegate my applications using xenapp 75. delivery groups.

My Scenario.

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..

at this time, you cannot load balance using the gui, you must use powershell.

my friend neil has an excellent writeup on how to do this.

thanks Carl,

I did use the mentioned web and I successfully Load balanced the delivery groups.. but now I would rather LB the VDA server within one delivery group. Kind of opposite to the article.

does anyone know if the correct way to load balance apps is to use multiple delivery groups or use multiple vda's in 1 delivery group?

After some testing and trying I have found my answers. If i have mutliple VDA application servers in the MCS it seems that this indeed constitutes LB among the application servers. I will continue on with my POC of xenapp 7.5 along this route.

Thank you for helping
