Before you start the installation, complete this list:
|Install the prequisites before starting the installation. See System Requirements.|
|Select the machines on which to install each Session Recording component and ensure that each computer meets the hardware and software requirements for the component or components to be installed on it.|
|Download the Session Recording zip file from the Citrix download page under XenApp > Components.|
|If you use the TLS protocol for communication between the Session Recording components, install the correct certificates in your environment. See Install certificates.|

Session Recording installation files:
The Session Recording Administration components are the Session Recording Database, Session Recording Server, and the Session Recording Policy Console. You can choose which of these components to install on a server.
Before installing the Session Recording Administration components, ensure you have all the prerequisites installed. See Session Recording Administration components.
To improve security, you can remove these permissions after installing the database.
Before installing the Session Recording Database, ensure you have all the prerequisites installed. See Session Recording Administration components.
If the database instance is not a named instance as you configured when you set up the instance, you can use only the machine name of the SQL Server. If you have named the instance, use machine-name\instance-name as the database instance name. To determine the server instance name you are using, run select @@servername on the SQL Server; the return value is the exact database instance name.
Click Test to test the connection to the SQL Server. Make sure the current user has the public SQL Server role permission; otherwise the test fails for permission limitation. Then click Next to continue the installation.
2. Follow the instructions to complete the installation. During the installation, if the current user is not the database administrator, a dialog box prompts for the credentials of a database administrator with sysadmin server role permission. Enter the correct credentials and then click OK to continue the installation. The installation creates the new Session Recording Database and adds the machine account of the Session Recording Server as db-owner.
Before installing the Session Recording Server, ensure you have all the prerequisites installed. See Session Recording Administration components.
The Session Recording Agent must be installed on the Server OS VDA machine on which you want to record sessions.
The Session Recording default installation uses HTTPS/TLS to secure communications. If TLS is not configured, use HTTP. To do so, deselect SSL in the IIS Management Console by navigating to the Session Recording Broker site. Open the SSL settings and uncheck the Require SSL box.
5. If you want to use the Rollover feature, ensure that you install this hotfix: http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX142037.
6. Follow the instructions to complete the installation.
Install the Session Recording Player on the Session Recording Server or one or more workstations in the domain for users who view session recordings.
Run the SessionRecordingPlayer.msi and follow the instructions to complete the installation.
To upgrade Session Recording from an earlier release, run the installer on the machine where you installed corresponding Session Recording features.
Follow the instructions to finish the upgrade installation. You do not need to provide any information during the upgrade process.
To remove Session Recording components from a server or workstation, use the uninstall or remove programs available through the Windows Control Panel. To remove the Session Recording Database, you must have the same sysadmin SQL server role permissions as when you installed it.
ou can use the Director console to create and activate Session Recording policies.
