XenMobile Server 10.12 Current Release

XenMobile Server is an on-premises enterprise mobility management solution that offers mobile device management (MDM) and mobile application management (MAM).

The mobile productivity apps are productivity and communication apps that are offered as a part of the XenMobile solution. For information about the mobile productivity apps, see mobile productivity apps.

The cloud service version of XenMobile Server is called Citrix Endpoint Management. For information specific to the XenMobile cloud offering, see Citrix Endpoint Management.

XenMobile Migration Service

If you’re using XenMobile Server on-premises, our Migration Services team can get you started with Endpoint Management. Citrix Endpoint Management provides secure and simplified device enrollment, configuration, and administration of endpoints using the Cloud environment.

To start migration, contact your local Citrix salesperson or Citrix partner.

Prerequisites

  • XenMobile Server:
    • One of the latest three versions of the on-premises XenMobile Server deployment
    • A local administrator account
    • PKI passwords
  • Citrix Cloud:
    • Citrix Cloud account
    • Citrix Cloud Connectors installed on at least two dedicated machines running Windows Server 2012 R2 or later. For details, see Citrix Cloud Connector.
    • Windows Server 2008 R2 or later to support forest and domain functional levels in Active Directory
  • XenMobile database requirements:
    • Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 or later. Endpoint Management requires that you provide the on-premises SQL service account password. For more information about the database requirements and compatibility, see System Requirements.
    • SQL Server Management Studio. Endpoint Management requires the latest version of SQL Server Management Studio to create a BACPAC file.
  • Citrix ADC: To test MAM functionality, Endpoint Management requires a separate Citrix ADC appliance.

The following diagram shows the Endpoint Management migration flow:

Migration flow

The migration process includes the following steps:

  1. Citrix assesses the customer’s on-premises environment to determine the best migration experience.
  2. The customer creates a BACPAC file that contains data from the on-premises database.
  3. After the customer provides a BACPAC file, the Migration Services team assists the customer with the conversion of the database into a cloud-ready environment.
  4. To support single sign-on across all applications, the Migration Services team helps the customer configure Citrix Gateway.
  5. For the final stage of migration, the customer has two options:
    • Test drive: Using a limited number of test devices, the customer points the devices to our cloud-hosted DNS to connect them with Endpoint Management. The migration from XenMobile Server to Citrix Endpoint Management doesn’t require the customer to re-enroll end user devices.
    • Production switchover: The customer creates a CNAME record that acts as a subdomain for load balancing in the Cloud. The customer’s enrollment URL remains unchanged.
