"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

James RankinCommented:
Are you using PVS or MCS? They will need account details to talk to the hypervisor and have permissions to power up machines, deploy machines, etc.

you will also need accounts that can set up the SQL database when you do the install, although these permissions are on the SQL end.

For specific Citrix services, you can reference this https://docs.citrix.com/en-us/xenapp-and-xendesktop/xenapp-6-5/xenapp65-w2k8-wrapper/xenapp65-admin-wrapper/ps-securing-wrapper-v2/ps-services-overview.html

Although my apologies, that is for XA 6.5, let me see if there is one for 7.x :-)

For a new XAXD 7.15 LTSR CU2 MCS or PVS implementation, Windows Active Directory Service Accounts are one of the prerequisites.
MS SQL 2016 required one Service Account for SQL server Agent and SQL Server Database Engine Services.
Citrix DDC required one Service Account for Broker Service.

Apart from above two scenarios, for which Services we need Service Accounts?
James RankinCommented:
Most likely none, as you can see from the link
