This is the third of five courses on building a highly-available Citrix XenDesktop/XenApp 7.6 LTSR environment and/or preparing for the CCP-V cert. This course discusses the installation of components that comprise a high-availability environment.
This course is the third in a Learning Path of five courses that cover Citrix XenDesktop/XenApp 7.6 LTSR as well as objectives for the CCP-V certification. Courses in this Learning Path follow directly after those in the Citrix XenDesktop/XenApp 7.6 LTSR CCA-V Learning Path. This course discusses the installation of components that comprise a high-availability XenDesktop/XenApp environment.
Hey, this is Greg Shields, and you've found the third course in my learning path on Citrix XenDesktop version 7.6 and Citrix's second-level CCP-V certification. I am Author Evangelist and a full-time author here at Pluralsight, and I've been building, managing, and helping others with Citrix environments since the days this product was known as WinFrame.
The courses in this learning path are in fact a Part Two of our conversation. Our first half focused on the CCA-V certification and managing a XenDesktop environment that's already in production. Here we begin anew, and go through all the steps in constructing a brand new, production-ready, highly-available XenDesktop environment from the ground up. This one's gonna' be good.
In this third course out of five, we'll begin the process of installing our XenDesktop components. We'll configure high-availability for our delivery controllers, and stand up the inital install of StoreFront and Provisioning Services. Before we're done, we'll also peek at the installation requirements for our VDAs and explore the best ways to deploy Citrix Receiver.
If you've just been tasked with building a new Citrix XenDesktop environment, this course is your first stop in brushing up on those skills for success. And then from here, you'll be ready to continue on the learning path as we configure and test that newly-built XenDesktop infrastructure. Let's get started.
