App Layering

Machine Creation for XenServer

To publish images to machine creation running on XenServer you need a platform layer for that purpose. To create the required platform layer, you need:

  • An OS layer

  • Network access to App Layering tools

    Access from the platform layer packaging machine virtual machine to the OS machine tools (in the installation download package).

  • Citrix Virtual Delivery Agent (VDA) installed on the platform layer

    Install the Citrix VDA installer for the Windows operating system that you are using on the platform layer.

  • Citrix Delivery Controller

    Install the Citrix Delivery Controller software on the server where you publish the layered image.

    As part of the Connector Configuration, if you include a script to run on the newly published layered image, you need the following:

    • Agent - Installed and running on the Delivery Controller, which allows the appliance to run the script on the Delivery Controller.
    • PowerShell Snap-in - Install the appropriate PowerShell Snap-in on the Delivery Controller.
  • Citrix resource information

    The Citrix information listed in the topic Machine Creation for XenServer connector configuration.
