To configure policies and filters in XenDesktop 5

May 14, 2013

You can configure settings in XenDesktop 5 by using either the Desktop Studio or the Group Policy Editor. When you configure NetScaler Gateway settings in XenDesktop, use the NetScaler Gateway virtual server name and the session policy name. Then, configure access control to allow connections to meet defined filters. You can also use SmartAccess policies.

  1. On the XenDesktop server, click Start > All Programs > Citrix > Desktop Studio.
  2. In the left pane, click to expand HDX Policy and then click the User tab in the middle pane.
  3. Under Users, click New.
  4. In the New Policy dialog box, under Identify your policy and then in Name, type a name.
  5. Click Next twice.
  6. In the New Policy dialog box, on the filters tab, under Filters, click Access Control and then click Add.
  7. In the New Filter dialog box, click Add.
  8. In the New Filter Element dialog box, in Connection Type, select With Access Gateway.

    To apply the policy to connections made through NetScaler Gateway without considering NetScaler Gateway policies, leave the default entries in AG farm name and Access condition.

  9. If you want to apply the policy to connections made through NetScaler Gateway based on existing NetScaler Gateway policies, do the following:
    1. In AG farm name, type the virtual server name.
    2. In Access condition, type the name of the endpoint analysis policy or session policy.
    Important: XenDesktop does not validate the NetScaler Gateway virtual server, endpoint analysis policy, or session policy names. Make sure the information is correct.
  10. Click OK twice, click Next and then click Create.
