Release: XenApp 6.5 Connector SP1 for System Center 2012 Configuration Manager

Posted by Massimo Ferrari   |   Friday, September 6th, 2013   |  

XenApp 6.5 Connector for Microsoft System Center 2012 Configuration Manager was released in March of this year after a collaboration project between Citrix and Microsoft lasted several months, with the aim of extend Configuration Manager range of control outside domain-joined machines to other devices including Linux, iOS and Android leveraging on the XenApp Connector itself and Citrix Receiver capabilities.
With the XenApp Connector, administrators can:

  • Orchestrate the process of deploying applications to XenApp servers, farms, and worker groups from within the Configuration Manager console, both directly for traditionally managed farms, as well as for streamed farms when used in conjunction with Provisioning Services
  • Extend the Configuration Manager  user-centric and rules-based application delivery capabilities to deliver applications to users in the most appropriate manner for the device they are using: MSI, App-V, or XenApp
  • Enable user self-service of XenApp hosted applications from both Receiver and the System Center Application Catalog
  • Ensure high availability by optionally leveraging the Power and Capacity Management Concentrator to gracefully orchestrate the deployment of applications and software updates while minimizing downtime for users

Now Citrix announced, through its official blog, the release of the first service pack that delivers the following improvements:

  • Improved configuration Wizard to help administrators better select a Configuration Manager Maintenance Window during which all software is deployed to the XenApp Server
  • Enable forward compatibility with future versions of the connector
  • Updated group policy console to support the latest XenApp Feature Pack &Connector
  • Fixed key bugs raised by customers
  • Enable in-place upgrade of the XenApp 6.5 Connector to XenApp 6.5 Connector (SP1)
