question on published apps in citrix forcing to run on same server

bankadmin used Ask the Experts™
We run 6.5 xenapp we have 8 2008 r2 servers running our farm. What we would like to do is force all MS office apps to run on the same server per user. For instance a user opens outlook and it opens on server 1 if that user opens one note, excel or word we want it to open on the same server (server 1) their outlook is running on. Is this possible?

Yes, entirely possible. Publish all apps with the exact same settings (except for name and path) and, if possible, XenApp 6.5 will do its best open apps in the same user session on the same server. This is called Session Sharing.

Sorry for the delay I have not tested it out (other projects) yet but it all makes sense, thanks for the help
