Architectural Components of Citrix Xenapp 6.5 :


A farm is a group of Xenapp servers that can be managed as a single logical entity, can use a single data store database & can balance the load resulting from requests for published resources in the farm. Citrix Xenapp 6.5 training published resources are of course application and desktops, which users can connect to. Xenapp 6.5 does not support mixed farms. Which means that a Xenapp 6.5 farm must exist of Xenapp 6.5 servers.



You can think of zones as active directory sites. Basically you create a zone for each location or site of your enterprise. You would create a zone for the each location. But Citrix generally recommends to only using a single zone. Multiple zones are only recommended in the large farms that span WANs


Xenapp servers

In Citrix Xenapp 6.5 training these servers that host applications and desktops, which your users can connect to. Xenapp server deliver online and offline applications on demand. They can be configured with one of two server roles, worker or controller. Worker servers can only host sessions, while controllers can host sessions and act as Data Collectors.


Data Collectors

A Data Collector is a server, which has been configured with controller and session host mode role. This means that data collector can host sessions & act as a controller. Data collectors keep track of the dynamic data in a zone, such as for example session & load information. Which means they among other things are responsible for the load balancing of Xenapp servers in a farm.


Datastore Database

The database stores the static information of a Xenapp farm. Such as configuration data for farm, published applications, administrators & printers. The data store database can be hosted on a SQL Server Express installation running on one of the Xenapp servers in a farm. But it’s recommended to host it on a dedicated SQL server or oracle server in medium to the large farms.


Worker Groups

In Citrix Xenapp 6.5 training you can group servers in worker groups, and then manage policies & applications on multiple servers at the same time. You can add servers to the worker groups manually, or you can base worker groups on the active directory organizational units. Which means that all servers in specified OU, will automatically be members of specific worker group.


License Server

Whenever a user connects to a Xenapp server, he needs a license. That license is provided by License Server. When a user connects to a Xenapp server, that server places a request of a license on behalf of the connecting user. In Citrix Xenapp 6.5 training uses concurrent the user licenses, which are licenses that are not tied to the specific users. The license is rather tied to a specific user/device combination, and it’s valid for the duration of the session. If the session ends, the license is returned to license pool. If a user connects from two different devices, he will consume two licenses.


Web Interface

The Citrix Web Interface gives users access to Xenapp applications & content. Users can access their resources through a standard web browser or through Citrix Receiver. The XML service on the XML brokers, communicates with web interface to determine which resources users have access to.


Citrix Receiver

Citrix Receiver is the software client that users use to access published applications and desktops on Xenapp farms & servers. Citrix receiver is available for almost any device and platform, such as for example android, iOS and windows.
