Adding XenApp and XenDesktop to a Single Site

Feb 07, 2014

If you are running XenApp and XenDesktop, you can add both applications to a single Web Interface site. This configuration allows you to use the same Secure Ticket Authority (STA) server from either XenApp or XenDesktop.

Note: XenDesktop supports the Web Interface. The minimum required version of the Web Interface is 5.0.

If you are using Web Interface 5.3or 5.4, you combine the XenApp and XenDesktop sites by using the Web Interface Management console.

Note: If the server farms are in different domains, you must establish two-way trust between the domains.

To add XenApp or XenDesktop to a single site by using Web Interface 5.3 or 5.4

  1. Click Start > All Programs > Citrix > Management Consoles > Citrix Web Interface Management.
  2. In the left pane, select XenApp Web Sites.
  3. In the Action pane, right-click a site and then click Server Farms.
  4. In the Manage Server Farms dialog box, click Add.
  5. Complete the settings for the server farm and then click OK twice.

For the best experience when using XenDesktop, change the setting UserInterfaceBranding to Desktops in the WebInterface.conf configuration file.
