Description

With so many moving parts making up even just your small CVAD lab environment, you can imagine how keeping track of system behaviors is no small task. Troubleshooting connections that don't connect or desktops that don't present can be difficult to impossible without the right tools. In this fifth course out of nine, Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops: Monitor and Troubleshoot, you will get to know, and in one case deploy, those monitoring and troubleshooting tools.

First, you'll begin with a look and a deployment of Citrix Director, Citrix's integrated monitoring solution that spreads across all the components you've installed so far. Next, once deployed, you'll explore the use of this powerful tool for solving a series of common Citrix environment issues. Finally, you'll go a mile wide and an inch deep into the broad array of troubleshooting tools Citrix has made available over the years. By the end of this course, you'll be armed with a quiver of troubleshooting tools that'll get you started in troubleshooting the most common of CVAD issues.

Course Overview
Hey, this is Greg Shields, and you've found the fifth course in my learning path on Installing and Managing Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops, also known as CVAD. 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. With so many moving parts making up just our small CVAD lab environment, you can imagine how keeping track of system behaviors is no small task in production. Troubleshooting connections that don't connect, or desktops that don't present, can be difficult to impossible without the right tools. Getting to know, and in one case here to deploy, those monitoring and troubleshooting tools is the topic for this course. In this fifth course out of nine, we'll begin with a look at a deployment of Citrix Director. Citrix's integrated monitoring solution that spreads across all the components we've installed here so far. Then, once deployed, we'll explore the use of this powerful tool for solving a series of common Citrix environment issues. Finally, we'll go a mile wide and an inch deep into the broad array of troubleshooting tools that Citrix has made available over the years. By the end of this course, you'll be armed with a quiver of troubleshooting tools and techniques that will get you started in troubleshooting the most common of CVAD issues. If you've just been tasked with building a new Citrix virtual apps and desktops environment, this course is your next 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 integrate app layering and Workspace Environment Manager, explore advanced management, and migrate to Citrix Cloud. Let's get started.
