The App Controller virtual machine (VM) runs on Citrix XenServer, Microsoft Hyper-V, or VMware ESXi. You can use XenCenter or vSphere management consoles to install App Controller 2.8.
When you finish configuring App Controller network settings by using the command-line console, you log on to the App Controller management console. Then, you configure the following network settings:
Optionally, you can change the settings you configured by using the command-line console in the wizard. These settings include:
After you configure App Controller system settings, to complete the configuration, App Controller retrieves the groups and members of the groups from the specified Base DN in Active Directory. When the retrieval is complete, App Controller logs off. You can log on again to continue configuring App Controller features.
You can download the App Controller virtual image from the Citrix web site. The virtual image contains the package that you need in order to install App Controller on XenServer, VMware, or Hyper-V.
For the XenServer installation, the virtual image is a file with the file name extension of .xva.
For the VMware installation, the virtual image is a file with the file name extension of .ova.
For the Hyper-V installation on Microsoft Server 2008 R2, the virtual image is a ZIP file with the file name extension of .vhd.
After you install the App Controller virtual machine (VM) and configure the initial settings by using the command-line console, you can configure additional App Controller network settings in the App Controller management console. To open the management console, type https://AppControllerIPaddress:4443/ControlPoint in the address bar of the web browser. For example, type https:// 10.20.30.40:4443/ControlPoint. The user name is administrator and the password is password. When you log on to the management console for the first time, the Configure wizard appears prompting you to configure settings that include the following:
After you configure and save the remaining network settings in the management console, App Controller retrieves users from Active Directory and then logs off. If you changed the password, log on again with the new password.
