Create a new deployment

  1. If the Citrix StoreFront management console is not already open after installation of StoreFront, on the Windows Start screen or Apps screen, locate and click the Citrix StoreFront tile.

  2. In the results pane of the Citrix StoreFront management console, click Create a new deployment.

  3. If there are multiple IIS sites, choose from the IIS site drop down which site you would like to use.

  4. If using a single StoreFront server, enter the server URL Base URL. If you will be configuring multiple StoreFront servers behind a load balancer, enter the load balancing url as the Base URL.

    If you have not yet set up your load balancing environment, enter the server URL. You can modify the base URL for your deployment at any time.

  5. Click Next and configure your first store as described in Create Store.

  6. Once you have completed all of the configuration steps, Click Create to create the deployment and the store.

  7. StoreFront displays a summary of the store that it created. Click Finish.

Create a new deployment using the PowerShell SDK

To create a deployment using the PowerShell SDK, call cmdlet Add-STFDeployment.

Multiple Internet Information Services (IIS) websites

StoreFront allows you to deploy different Stores in different IIS websites per Windows server so that each store can have a different host name and certificate binding.

To create multiple web sites see Microsoft IIS documentation.

It is not possible to create multiple StoreFront deployments using the management console; you must use the PowerShell SDK. For example to create two IIS website deployments, one for applications and one for desktop use the following commands:

Add-STFDeployment -SiteID 1 -HostBaseURL ""
Add-STFDeployment -SiteID 2 -HostBaseURL ""

Once you have enabled multiple sites, StoreFront disables the management console and it is not possible to return StoreFront to single site mode. You must configure the sites using the StoreFront SDK and include the SiteID in each command.
