Citrix Provisioning

SQL Always On for SQL Server 2012, 2014, 2016 and 2017

Citrix Provisioning supports the SQL Always On high availability and disaster recovery solution. Consider the following:

  • The SQL 2012 native client is required. This client is an optional prerequisite in the Citrix Provisioning server install process.
  • Citrix Provisioning is only aware of and interacts with Always On through the listener DNS name.
  • The database must be part of the pre-made high availability group.
  • The listener DNS name and high availability group are part of the procedures to create SQL Always On.
  • The soap/stream services user must be manually configured to have full permission to each SQL server part of the Always On configuration.
  • Citrix Provisioning is not aware of the individual SQL server/cluster behind SQL Always On.


See Supported Databases for XenApp and XenDesktop Components in the Knowledge Center for additional information about supported databases and clients.
