Lync within XenApp 6.5 published desktops - Best practise?

Hi Guys,

In our organisation we (IT Dept) have been using Lync for about a year now. It's now caught on and the business wants to roll it out to our end users. We run XenApp 6.5 published desktops. The servers have Server 2008 R2 installed with Office 2010 and we use the Lync 2013 client. We've got a pilot group of Lync users and we've installed it on 3 servers.

Can anyone advise on my optimisations we should put in place to make sure Lync works well in this kind of environment?

We had a Citrix component crash yesterday and made the server come close to rebooting. It may well just be a Citrix thing, but it was caused by a DCOM thing. The only thing that's changed on that server is Lync installed - maybe this?

Any optimisations/tips would be great!

Cheers!

Jack

Unfortunately Lync does have issues in the Citrix XenApp Published Desktop environment.  You may run into limitations such as web cams not working, shared chat not working, among other issues.  This will depend on how you are connecting to the lync environment of course (thin client/physical pc).

What type of optimizations are you looking for?  There are a lot of Lync 2013 specific Group policies you can put into place. See below.

If you are planning on using the VDI plugin, these are things to consider:

That's all I've got.
