This is the second of five courses on building a highly-available Citrix XenDesktop/XenApp 7.6 LTSR environment or preparing for the CCP-V certification. This course discusses the preparation activities for building a high-availability environment.
This course is the second 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 preparation activities for building a high-availability XenDesktop/XenApp environment.
Course Overview Hey, this is Greg Shields, and you found the second 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's going to be good. In this second course out of five, we'll be exploring the requirements and recommendations you need to know to prepare for installation. We'll review the XenDesktop and FMA architecture, we'll plan for the database, security, and certificate configurations that we'll later implement, and we'll take a look at the Citrix licenses you need to have before you ever get started. If you've just been tasked with building a new Citrix XenDesktop environment, this course is your first step in brushing up on those skills for success, and then from here you'll be ready to continue on the learning path as we install, configure, and test that newly built XenDesktop infrastructure. Let's get started!
