Plan the new site

May 08, 2013

The network administrators have decided to set up a new domain for the new environment, based on Windows Server 2012 domain controllers and Active Directory 2012. Ultimately, a new XenApp farm is planned, based on Windows Server 2012 running XenApp, but for now, the new domain is used only for the Windows 7 XenDesktop site.

The site is based on a shared Windows 7 base image hosted in a XenServer environment and accessed by Windows terminals. Office 2007 is included in the base image.

Because users from both domains are expected to make use of the new domain, a two-way trust is set up between OldDomain and NewDomain, both of which must belong to the same AD forest.

The following graphic illustrates the configuration of the new XenDesktop site.
