Installing Command Center Software

Dec 18, 2015

You can install the Command Center server on either the Windows or Linux platform. You can download the installation package for both Windows and Linux from the Citrix portal Web site:

There are two types of server installation: Evaluation and Typical. The installation type is specified at the start of the installation process.

Evaluation installation type enables you to quickly install the Command Center server by installing the pre-packaged PostgreSQL database and by using predefined options. Typical installation type provides more flexibility and enables you to connect to an external database; this is recommended for use in production environment. For more information on the installation types and installation steps, see
You can also configure Command Center in a distributed multi-tier architecture by installing Command Center agents that manage and monitor the Citrix devices. This architecture provides scalability and reduces the load on the server. For more information, see
