Deploy and Manage Citrix XenApp/XenDesktop 7.5 Fast Track Overview

This course provides students an accelerated path to obtain the skills required to successfully deploy and support a complete Citrix hosted application and desktop virtualization solution in a Windows Server 2012 R2 environment.
Throughout this course, students will learn how to configure an environment that includes the following Citrix components: XenServer, XenDesktop, Citrix License Server, MCS, PVS, Personal vDisk, StoreFront, NetScaler (ICA Proxy, Load Balancing, Endpoint Analysis), and Citrix Receiver. Upon course completion, students will be able to build a XenDesktop 7.5 environment from scratch, test the implementation to ensure that all components work as expected, and successfully manage, monitor, and troubleshoot a XenDesktop 7.5 solution.

Audience

This course is recommended for Architects, Consultants, Engineers, and Administrators. Students will gain hands-on experience installing, configuring, and managing hosted application and desktop virtualization solutions from the ground up. Upon completion of the course, students will have the skills required to successfully deploy and support XenDesktop 7.5 solutions that the majority of Citrix customers implement today.

- An understanding of server, desktop and application virtualization concepts
- Experience with Windows Server 2012 R2, specifically:  
  - Active Directory
  - Domains
  - Groups and User Accounts
  - Organizational Units

  - Group Policy Objects
- Experience with Windows 7 and Windows 8.1 user interfaces
- Basic storage knowledge (manage existing storage types, add new storage)
- Basics of Citrix licensing
- Familiarity with at least one hypervisor (XenServer, Hyper-V, or vSphere)
- Basic understanding of the different types of profiles (local, roaming, mandatory)   

Course Objectives
Upon successful completion of this course, learners are able to:
- Understand the XenDesktop 7.5 architecture, components, and communication
- Set up the hypervisor  Set up and manage the XenDesktop 7.5 infrastructure
- Create and manage machine catalogs and Delivery Groups
- Configure and manage StoreFront
- Configure and manage policies and end-user profiles
- Manage sessions, sites, and end users with Director
- Manage printing
- Set up and Manage Provisioning Services
- Validate the Implementation
- Set up NetScaler to provide external access to XenDesktop 7.5 resources

Instructional Method
This course is offered as an instructor-led course with demonstrations and the practical application of concepts through hands-on exercises in a live lab environment, as well as simulations.

Certification Preparation
