Citrix DaaS

Nutanix virtualization environments

Follow this guidance when using Nutanix Acropolis to provide virtual machines in your Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops deployment. The setup process includes the task of installing and registering the Nutanix plug-in in your Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops environment.

For more information, see the Nutanix Acropolis MCS plug-in Installation Guide, available at the Nutanix Support Portal.


Install the Nutanix plug-in on all Cloud Connectors where Citrix DaaS must create a host connection to the resource location that has a Nutanix hypervisor.

Install and register the Nutanix plug-in

Complete the following procedure to install and register the Nutanix plug-in on all your Cloud Connectors. Use the Manage > Full Configuration functions in Citrix Cloud to create a connection to Nutanix. Then, create a machine catalog that uses a snapshot of a master image you created in the Nutanix environment.


We recommend that you stop and then restart the Citrix Host Service, the Citrix Broker Service, and the Machine Creation Services when you install or update the Nutanix plug-in.

For information about installing the Nutanix plug-in, see the Nutanix Documentation site.
