Citrix XenApp 6.5 training completed

I just finished going through all my training material on XenApp 6.5.  I must say I feel very confident in everything that I learned during the course.  Much of the material I was already familiar with as I used XenApp 5.0 day in and day out at my last two jobs.  What this course did was help shore up the areas I did not have as much experience with and give me an overview of the entire system.  I will just go over the material and check...

XML Integration with XenApp 6.5

Then came the first issue in the entire installation, it was when I installed the Web Interface on...

The XenServer hypervisor installed very quickly and...

I figured the best option for the time would be to just setup DHCP on the Cisco 2611 router.  The setup is...

CCA prep on XenApp 6.5

Always wanting to keep my skills up to date I thought I would do two things at once.  First study up on XenApp 6.5 to see what is new since XenApp 5.  I have been using XenApp 5 for a number of years now at my last job and found it relatively easy to administer and deploy.  However after installing XenApp 6 and 6.5 the installation process alone is much easier.  No longer do you have to install all the required software ahead of time, the...
