Configure a XenApp 6.5 Farm from scratch – Part 1

Introduction

In this post I am going to detail the steps required in order to get a single XenApp 6.5 server deployed to a farm. In this series of steps I will detail the installation of 4 servers:

  • XA-DC1 - Active Directory Domain Controller
  • XA-SQL1 - Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2
  • XA-WEB1 - Citrix Licensing and Web Interface Server
  • XA-XA1 - Citrix XenApp Server

Configure the Domain Controller (XA-DC1)

  1. Rename the computer

Netdom renamecomputer localhost /NewName:XA-DC1 /Reboot /Force

  1. Net the IP Address and DNS Server
    netsh interface ip set address "Local Area Connection" static 192.168.0.1 255.255.255.0 192.168.0.254 1
    netsh interface ip set dns "Local Area Connection" static 192.168.0.1 validate=no
  2. Install Active Directory Domain Controller using PowerShell
    Import-Module ServerManager
    Add-WindowsFeature ADDS-Domain-Controller
  3. Run DCPROMO
