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)

    The Citrix DDC software must be installed on the server where the layered images will be published. As part of the connector configuration, if you include a script to run on the newly published layered image, you will need the following:

    • Agent - Installed and running on the DDC. This allows the appliance to run the script on the DDC.

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

  • Citrix resource information

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