4 XenApp Connector for System Center Configuration Manager From system centric to user centric Evolution of Configuration Manager and the XenApp Connector Project Titan XenApp Connector for SCCM 2007 R2. Shipped as part of XenApp 6. Project Atlas XenApp Connector for SCCM 2007 R2 and R3. Shipped as part of XenApp 6.5. Pro XenA for S Conf 4

Tony Tablet or not Laptop vs Desktop # of CPUs Assembly/DLL Active Directory OU App-V MSI Deployment Types (DT) File system if Primary & device < >40 512MB GB then deliver to using Mobile.CAB Citrix XenApp Connector for SCCM 2012 Unify: Single pane of glass (SCCM Console) to manage all application deployments XenApp, MSI, AppV, mobile etc. Deliver: Deliver any app to any user coming from any device via Receiver. Highly available: Connector gracefully orchestrates software distribution on XenApp servers, so no downtime for users. Reuse: Leverage all existing infrastructure investments in XenApp and SCCM. 6

7 SCCM Application Catalog Self-service portal for app subscription What is the Application Catalog? 1. Web-based Self-Service portal for users to subscribe to applications made available to them (Shopping Cart). Also allows requisitions handled by workflows. 2. The most appropriate DT is chosen based on the user s environment. 3. Subscriptions are static to a user-device pair. Freshly reevaluated each time. They don t roam! 4. XenApp DT apps are handled by the XenApp Connector plug-in.

10 App-V and XenApp Why App-V for XenApp? Single image management. Overcomes App compatibility problems. Why SCCM Connector for App-V 5? No need to deploy App-V 5 infrastructure SCCM completely handles package deployment, registration, sync etc. One console for deployment and publishing.

25 Published App List If you change config in App-V Mgt Server, must refresh apps in Studio Receiver Experience 25

26 Featured Apps and All Apps 26

27 How to stream to end point If you want App-V 5 to stream to end points, just install the App-V 5 client on that end point and it will stream. Receiver has local app preference (KEYWORDS:Prefer= App ) that can be configured to give priority to locally installed apps for FTA. If you don't want to the app to run on the dive (or offline) then don't install the App-V 5 client to that end point and it will then run as published app. In other words, both Receiver and now App-V 5 publish apps to users and NOT to devices. ᵒ So the end point (where the user logs on) dictates where the apps runs, not the server ComTrade Management Packs Monitoring Citrix assets with System Center Operations Manager 27
