The process for creating machine catalogs and adding Linux VDA machines is very similar to the traditional Windows VDA approach. Refer to the online Citrix Product documentation for a more complete description of how to complete these tasks.
For creating machine catalogs that contain Linux VDA machines, there are a few restrictions that differentiates the process from creating machine catalogs for Windows VDA machines:
Early versions of Citrix Studio did not support the notion of a "Linux OS"; however, selecting the Windows Server OS or Server OS option implies an equivalent hosted shared desktops delivery model. Selecting the Windows Desktop OS or Desktop OS option implies a XenDesktop single user per machine delivery model.
If a machine leaves and is rejoined to the Active Directory domain, the machine will need to be removed and re-added again to the machine catalog.
The process for creating a delivery group and adding machine catalogs containing Linux VDA machines is almost identical for Windows VDA machines. Refer to the online Citrix Product documentation for a more complete description of how to complete these tasks.
For creating delivery groups that contain Linux VDA machine catalogs, the following restrictions apply:
Publishing applications are supported with Linux VDA version 1.4. The Linux VDA does not support the delivery of desktops and apps to the same machine.
