Plan the new site

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 Citrix Virtual Apps farm is planned, based on Windows Server 2012 running Citrix Virtual Apps. But for now, the new domain is used only for the Windows 7 Citrix Virtual Desktops 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 use the new domain, a two-way trust is set up between OldDomain and NewDomain. Both domains must belong to the same AD forest.

The following graphic illustrates the configuration of the new Citrix Virtual Desktops site.
