With the XenApp Connector, administrators can:
- Application deployment to virtually all devices
XenApp Connector extends the application deployment reach of Configuration Manager by enabling administrators to deliver applications to devices running Receiver for Windows and any device connected to a Receiver for Web site or a XenApp services site.
- Custom XenApp deployment type
XenApp Connector adds the new XenApp deployment type to Configuration Manager. The XenApp deployment type defines how to deliver XenApp published applications to users managed by Configuration Manager.
- Multiple XenApp farm support
XenApp Connector creates device collections in Configuration Manager for connected XenApp farms and worker groups.
- Configuration Manager idle policy support
The XenApp Agent service can use the Configuration Manager idle policy to coordinate the installation of software from XenApp servers. This feature replaces the functionality previously provided by task sequences.
- Configuration wizard prerequisite checks
The wizard reports missing components needed to deploy XenApp Connector.
- Integration with Citrix Provisioning Server
This integration enables you to deploy XenApp applications to users running PVS-based shared images.
- Improved high-availability configuration
XenApp Connector uses an active/passive model for high availability. This model minimizes resource usage by running only one XenApp Connector at a time per farm.
