How to Change Registration Port for XenDesktop 5 Desktop Delivery Controller and Virtual Desktop Agent

This article describes how to change the Virtual Desktop Agent (VDA) registration port in XenDesktop 5 for both the Desktop Delivery Controller (DDC) and the Virtual Desktop Agent. Two scenarios are covered:

  • The DDC(s) VDA registration port is the default of 80
  • The DDC(s) VDA registration port has already been changed (not 80)

The default VDA registration port is 80 in XenDesktop 5 and 8080 in XenDesktop 4. VDAs now inherit their VDA Registration Ports through Citrix policy.

Caution! The order in which you change the VDA registration port is important. Any deviation from these steps requires you to update the registry to force communication on the desired port.
