  4. New Marketing Campaigns for Citrix Service Providers

    For years, Citrix has been an enterprise software company, selling its virtualization solution to the Fortune 500. But what if you’re running a Citrix Service Provider business? You’re not selling product, you’re selling a service. The product, whether it's XenDesktop, XenApp, XenMobile or anything else is merely incidental to the solution. As a Citrix Service Provider you’re identifying a need and then you’re selling a use ...

  5. Rewriting the Session ClientName from StoreFront

    One popular customisation applied to Web Interface is to rewrite the Client Name used in the session to allow policies or local scripts to reflect a custom business need. Some customisations are fairly simple. For example, some would copy the user name into the client name, but other customers used complex logic to encode many different fields into this data. In WI, the changes here were ...

  7. Linux Virtual Desktopインストールしてみました

       XenDesktopにおいてLinux VDAのTech previewをインストールして試してみました。 https://www.citrix.com/downloads/xendesktop/betas-and-tech-previews/linux-virtual-desktop-tech-preview.html  Linux VDAは文字通りLinux OSにVDAをインストールして、XenDesktopサイトで管理およびReceiverとHDX通信を行うためのAgentです。XenDesktopの管理フレームワーク(FlexManagement Architecture: FMA)の中に組み込むことで既存のXenApp/XenDesktop環境にシームレスに組み込むことができます。  ご存知のようにFMAはActive Directoryを中心に.NETフレームワークを利用して制御されています。よってLinux VDAをインストールするサーバーがActive Directoryに参加する必要があります。LinuxへのログインもStoreFrontを介してActive Directoryのユーザーアカウントを利用します。  LinuxがADに参加するにはSambaクライアントを利用することが可能です。この場合 Kerberosの認証を利用していますのでKerberos認証の設定の必要があります。Kerberos認証時のポイントの一つが時刻同期です。ADと5分以上時刻がずれると認証に失敗します。ドメイン参加しているWindowsであれば自動的にADに時刻が同期されますが、Linuxの場合はNTPの設定を行う必要があります。NTPにADを指定することもできます。また時刻同期はNTPサーバーのみにしてハイパーバイザー側との時刻同期はオフにしたほうがトラブルを避けられます。    今回SUSE Linux Enterprise Desktop/Server 11 Service Pack 3をXenServer 6.2上に構築しました。複数ユーザーによる共有デスクトップが利用可能です。  インストール手順は英文ですが、以下に従って行えばOKです。日本語環境も動作します。 https://www.citrix.com/content/dam/citrix/en_us/documents/downloads/xendesktop/linux-virtual-desktop-installation-guide-for-suse-linux-enterprise.pdf    実際の動作はこちらのLinux Virtual Desktopデモビデオをご覧ください。
