XenApp Connector for System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R2 enables Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager 2007 R2, which helps you deploy and publish applications to XenApp servers. XenApp Connector requires XenApp server farms running XenApp 6 for Windows 2008 R2.
For XenApp servers managed by the Power and Capacity Management feature, XenApp Connector uses the Power and Capacity Management Concentrator to coordinate the power states and load consolidation of farm servers when sending Configuration Manager advertisements and installing applications.
XenApp Connector has two components:
- XenApp Data Connector
- Configuration Manager Console Extension
XenApp Data Connector is the bridge between the XenApp farm and Configuration Manager. It manages XenApp server collections in Configuration Manager and gathers configuration data defined in the Configuration Manager console to configure XenApp servers. XenApp Data Connector manages XenApp servers and gathers farm data using the XenApp 6 PowerShell SDK.
Configuration Manager Console Extension extends the Configuration Manager console to provide a graphical user interface enabling you to deploy applications to XenApp servers and publish XenApp hosted applications. Install Configuration Manager Console Extension on the same server as the Configuration Manager console.
