XenApp 7.14 – (Really) Manage a DR!

Posted 4 CommentsPosted in Citrix

Announced a few days ago, the 7.14 version includes a new cool feature : Now, you can really manage the disaster recovery of a XenApp environment! Before 7.14, the only setting available to manage the load throttling was this one: Concurrent Logon Tolerance setting You can control the number of pending logons a server delivering Server OS machines can concurrently accept by setting the Concurrent Logon tolerance.

Posted 1 CommentPosted in Citrix

Announced a few hours age, the 7.14 version is now available and one of the cool feature is to mix license type in the same site.

StoreFront Launcher PowerShell script

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Citrix

I’ve announced it during E2EVC in Sydney: I’ve started a new project on GitHub! This project is based on a PowerShell script running on a client device. Instead of providing the URl of the StoreFront server to the user, you ask them to launch a shortcut to this script. It’ll verify the availability of every URl you have provided in a CSV file and launch the first answering site with the default browser. It’s useful for: Managing a High Availability […]
