This is the first of five courses on building a highly-available Citrix XenDesktop/XenApp 7.6 LTSR environment and/or preparing for the CCP-V certification. It introduces Citrix XenDesktop/XenApp 7.6 LTSR, the certification, and the environment.
This course is the first 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 introduces Citrix XenDesktop 7.6 LTSR, the CCP-V certification, and the environment you can optionally build to follow along with the demonstrations.
Course Overview Hey, this is Greg Shields and you've found the first 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 2 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 is going to be good. In this first course out of five, I'll be introducing Citrix XenDesktop 7. 6 LTSR, Citrix's first long-term service release for XenDesktop. We'll discuss the CCP-V certification and we'll also explore the virtual machines you'll need if you plan on following along. If you've just been tasked with a building a new Citrix XenDesktop environment, this course is your first stop in brushing up on those skills for success and then from there you'll be ready to continue on the learning path as we prepare, install, configure, and test that newly built XenDesktop infrastructure. Let's get started!
