XenApp 6.5…incoming!

Paul Lowther - Fri, 02/17/2012 - 23:05

Hey folks,

I know it’s been a while and I’m still getting visits to the site.  A lot of the information I posted here is still valid, so thanks for your continued visitations.

I’m just about to embark on getting XenApp 6.5 put into our environment, based on Windows 2008 R2 (of course).  Whereas I won’t be doing the direct engineering myself, I’ll be heading up the team doing it (stuff happens, people move on) but I’ll be able to bring you information as it comes in.

So, keep tuned in.

What’s more we’re looking to do a sizeable implementation of XenDesktop on XenServer too, so I’ll be sure to update you on some of that too.

If you have any requests, let me know – I’ll be sure to try to get the info!

Citrix Receiver and Juniper SSLVPN

Paul Lowther - Sat, 10/02/2010 - 18:25

What do you do if you have a requirement to have your Citrix Farm(s) available outside of the company firewall. ‘Available’ meaning usable on any device, become truly device agnostic!

You could punch some holes through your firewall and hope it meets the stringent company security regulations.

You could buy a Citrix Netscaler solution and use their in-built Access Gateway functionality to ‘easily’ allow ICA traffic into your network.

But…What if your company had already invested in SSLVPN technology and couldn’t justify Netscaler?

The answer, if you chose Juniper, which many companies do due to it’s standing in the technology space and magic quadrant position with Gartner and Forrester, is actually all rather simple.

On September 8th, Juniper released their new Junos Pulse app for iOS4.1 and above. This means that any device currently compatible with iOS4.1 can utilize an SSL connection through the Juniper devices, into a secure company network. Once the connection is established, you can fire up Citrix Receiver, put in your simple connection string for your farm and hey presto, access to your published applications and desktops on XenApp and XenDesktop.

OK, so we’re not device agnostic yet, but…

iOS4.2 is out in November, which will be release for the iPad, a big game changer for mobile computing due to it’s portability and screen real estate (self confessed fanboy!), which will mean Junos Pulse will work immediately, once installed and connected to your SSLVPN device.

For the non-Apple devices, I have it on good authority that Droid, Symbian, Windows Mobile and Blackberry are all in Beta development at the moment and will be released ‘soon’. Great news…and a step towards device agnostic usage, so long as there is a Citrix Receiver for your platform too.

Getting it to work:

Installing the app is as simple as any app from the App Store, configuring it is also pretty simple, what’s more, with the Apple iPhone Configuration Tool for OSX/Windows v3.1, you can create pre-configured connections for your device, which does the ‘hard’ work for your end users!

Configuring the Juniper SSL device is fairly simple too, as long as you are using the NetworkConnect, function your device will have access, albeit fairly pervasive, to the network you’re connecting to.

What do I recommend you do is:

Set up a separate realm for mobile devices, which you specify as the connection string
Create a new sign-in page that is friendly to small screens – check out the Juniper knowledge base for a sample download.
Limit the devices you want to have connect by specifying the client device identifier.
Limit the sign-in screen to be available to the *Junos* browser only.
Add black lists of network locations you don’t want everyone to have access to. These could be highly confidential data repositories or your ‘crown jewels’.
Add white lists of citrix servers you want your folks to have access to while on the network, or if you’re happy that the blacklist is sufficient, allow * for a more seamless and agile implementation which will not need adjustment as your farm grows.

There is a lot of flexibility in the solution and depending on your security needs you can mix and match some of these ideas and more in what constitutes a valid policy for your company. The more controls you add, the more you may need to revisit the configuration as devices arrive and requirements change.

Once you are up and running with NetworkConnect you can configure your Citrix Receiver client, connect and start using your Citrix apps strait away.

I was impressed how quick it was to achieve and painless the process has been made.

I don’t work for Juniper and have only recently become familiar with the technology but in my mind, Junos Pulse is a complete breath of fresh air. In forthcoming releases there will be host checkers and cache cleaners etc to ensure the device is adequately secure before allowing connection.

The area of mobile security is still in it’s infancy, it will be interesting to see if Juniper keeps up with the requirements for more security, or my hope is be the lead for others to follow!

Citrix Merchandising Server 1.2 on VMWare ESX (vSphere)

Paul Lowther - Sun, 03/21/2010 - 10:49

I recently acquired (yesterday) the Tech Preview version of Mechandising Server 1.2 from Citrix, which is specifically packaged for use on VMWare ESX.

Version 1.2 has been out or a short while, and whereas I had it running rather well on a XenServer, my company is a VMWare-only place right now, so getting this into a Production state would have meant jumping through several hoops.  I attempted to convert the Xen package over to VMWare but consistently got issues with the XML data in the OVF.

The new VMWare packaged file, which is around 450Mb, imported without a hitch!  Now I’m up and running on the platform of choice and this should make it easier for me to use in Production!  Good news!

Citrix recommends 2CPUs and 4Gb Ram for the instance.  Depending on your scale of usage, you can get it up and running with 1CPU and 1Gb RAM but that really does depend on how large your Directory data is.  For testing, I recommend 2Gb RAM, although it’s simple to adjust when you are more familiar with the load that is required for your environment.

If I find any gotchas with the configuration or getting Receiver/Plug-ins working with the Web Interface, I’ll let you know!

Thanks for reading, leave a comment!

AppSense 8.0 SP3 CCA Unattended

Paul Lowther - Fri, 03/19/2010 - 14:03

If you’re wanting an unattended installation of you AppSense CCA (Client Communications Agent) you will want to look here.

This is documented in the Admin Guide but I missed it on my first run-through.

The installation is the same for the 32-bit or 64-bit version, simply call the right MSI for your server type.  This is also true for the compatible Operating System versions, there’s only one per architecture but covers all compatible OS, which keeps it relatively simple.

Installation Script @echo off REM *** SETTING UP THE ENVIRONMENT NET USE M: "\\server\share\folder" /pers:no SET INSTALLDIR=M:\ REM **** Installing the AppSense Communications Agent (WatchDog agent installed also!) REM **** Set this VARIABLE for your own (primary) Management Server SET APPSENSESITE=SERVERNAME ECHO Installing AppSense Communications Agent.. cd /d %INSTALLDIR%\AppSenseCCA SET OPTIONS=INSTALLDIR="D:\Program Files\AppSense\Management Center\Communications Agent\" SET OPTIONS=%OPTIONS% WEB_SITE="http://%APPSENSESITE%:80/" SET OPTIONS=%OPTIONS% WATCHDOGAGENTDIR="D:\Program Files\AppSense\Management Center\Watchdog Agent\" SET OPTIONS=%OPTIONS% GROUP_NAME="ZeroPayload" SET OPTIONS=%OPTIONS% REBOOT=REALLYSUPPRESS /qb- /l*v c:\setup\log\cca.log START /WAIT MSIEXEC /i ClientCommunicationsAgent32.msi %OPTIONS%

This will install the CCA, set the installation folders, choose your “preferred” Management Server and then add it to a Deployment Group.

Management Console Considerations

One requirement for the Deployment Group is that it set for “Allow CCAs to self-register with this group”

This is set in the Management Console, in the group you have created, called ZeroPayload here, under the Settings section.  Putting a tick in the box is sufficient to complete the registration setting.

Now, a server will be able to join the group with the above unattended script.

What I have done, to manage how and when the agents and pacakages are deployed, is set the “Installation Schedule” to be set to “At Computer Startup – Agents are installed only when computers are started“.  I have added all the agents into this group but no PACKAGE payloads.  If you now reboot the server at your convenience, once the CCA is installed (in my case part of a wider XenApp install) the server will install the agents and immediately REBOOT the server one more time, since you need to remember that the Performance Manager agent will automatically issue a reboot request upon installation.

If you were to set this as “Immediate” in the Installation Schedule, there would be no control over when your server reboots.  Many people fall foul of that nuance of PM as it’s easy to forget (I’m sure the guys at AppsSense forget that on occasion too!).

One very cool behaviour is that you can add both 32-bit and 64-bit agents into this Deployment Group and your server will only install the version it needs for the given architecture.

So now your server is configured and ready for it’s final deployment.  If you’re like me and have  number of active Deployment Groups, some with a slightly different package payload, you can use this method initially, then move your server to the required deployment group.  If all agent versions are the same, and in the beginning they certainly should be, all that will be deployed when you move to another group is the Packages, and these don’t force a reboot.

One last thing to consider.  Any Environment Manager packages that have “Computer” settings will not be invoked until the next reboot.

So… there you have it in a nutshell.

Leave me a comment if you have experiences to share.
