This is the third of five courses on managing a Citrix XenDesktop/XenApp 7.6 LTSR environment and/or preparing for the CCA-V certification. This course discusses the maintenance tasks appropriate for a Citrix administrator managing an 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 CCA-V certification. Courses in this Learning Path follow directly before those in the Citrix XenDesktop/XenApp 7.6 LTSR CCP-V Learning Path. This course discusses the maintenance tasks appropriate for a Citrix administrator who is charged with managing an existing XenDesktop environment.
Course Overview Hey, this is Greg Shields, and you found the third course in my learning path on Citrix XenDesktop version 7. 6 in the CCA-V certification. I am author evangelist, and a full-time author here at Pluralsight, and this is, I believe, the fifth version of XenDesktop in all its prior forms for which I've filmed training. This one's going to be good. We're doing things just a bit different this time though as we map closely to the objectives and tasks that Citrix makes public in their CCA-V exam preparation guide. We're also taking a different approach in that we're not so much talking about building a XenDesktop environment, but rather managing one that's already been constructed. In this third course out of five, we'll be running through a prototypical checklist of seven tasks that are common in XenDesktop maintenance, including maintaining XenServer itself, updating your desktop images, maintaining vDisks, and configuring power management settings. If you've just been handed a Citrix XenDesktop environment to manage, 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 monitor and troubleshoot that XenDesktop infrastructure. Let's get started.
