StoreFront Launcher PowerShell script

Posted on 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 […]

Pour ceux qui n’aurait pas eu la nouvelle, la deuxième édition du French Citrix User Group est lancée.

The Expert to Expert Virtualization Conference (E2EVC) was hold yesterday in Tokyo. After a great event in Sydney, I was excited to have this new experience.

XenDesktop 7.12 – Machine tag restrictions

Posted on Leave a commentPosted in Citrix

I’ve been working on some large Xendesktop 7.x deployments up to 40 000 users and one of the main issue encountered with those large infrastructures was the lack of agility of the Delivery Groups.
