App Layering

Machine Creation for Azure or Azure Government

The software installers must be available in a location that’s accessible to the packaging machine where you are creating a layer.

Machine creation prerequisites

When creating a Platform layer for publishing images, you need:

  • Citrix Virtual Delivery Agent (VDA) installer for Windows

  • Citrix Desktop Delivery Controller (DDC)

    Install the Citrix DDC software on the server where the layered images are published. If you include a script to run on the layered images, you need the following:

    • Agent - Deploy the agent on the DDC, which allows the appliance to run the script there.

    • PowerShell Snap-in - Appropriate PowerShell Snap-in must be installed on the DDC.

  • Citrix resource information

    The Citrix info listed in Machine Creation for Azure connector configuration.
