Adding a CVAD Connection

To connect ControlUp to your XenDesktop deployment, you will need to create an EUC Environment site connection in the ControlUp Real-Time Console. The connection will define the address(es) of the broker(s) from which data will be gathered, as well as the credentials used for data collection and management actions. The following are mandatory prerequisites for adding a Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops (formerly known as XenDesktop/XenApp) EUC Environment connection:

  • Port TCP 80/443 opened between Real-Time Console <> Broker or data collector <> Broker
  • XenDesktop 7.5 or later
  • XenDesktop PowerShell SDK installed on machines configured as the XenDesktop data collectors. This can be either the console/monitor machines or a dedicated data collector with the ControlUp Agent installed)

To add a CVAD connection:

  1. Click on the Add EUC Environment button in the Home ribbon or right-click your organization, select Add > EUC Environment and the Add EUC Environment Connection dialog box appears.

  2. In the Solution/Platform drop-down, select Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops, and the site name will be populated automatically.

  3. Fill in the Broker name/IP full name (FQDN), hostname or IP address.

  4. From the Credentials drop-down select or add a set of credentials that will be used for data collection from your XenDesktop infrastructure. It is highly recommended to configure a dedicated data collector.

  5. Click OK and the CVAD connection is added.

Once ControlUp establishes a connection with your CVAD site, it will automatically populate the Site Name field with the site’s name and the Brokers Failover List tab with the names of all the broker servers assigned to the CVAD site.

Adding a VMware Horizon Connection

To connect ControlUp to your Horizon deployment, you must create a VMware Horizon site connection in the ControlUp Console. The connection will specify the Horizon pools(s) from which data will be gathered, as well as the credentials used for data collection and management actions. The following are mandatory prerequisites for adding a Horizon “EUC Environment” connection:

Port TCP 443 opened between console <> connection server or data collector <> connection server

To add a VMware Horizon connection:

  1. Click on the Add EUC Environment button in the Home ribbon or right-click your organization, select Add > EUC Environment and the Add EUC Environment Connection dialog box appears.
  2. From the Solution/Platform drop-down box select VMware Horizon.

  3. In the Connection Server Name/IP enter the full name (FQDN), hostname or IP address of a Connection Server in your Horizon site, it will auto-discover all the components in the Horizon environment.
  4. From the Credentials dropdown box select or add a set of credentials that will be used for data collection from your Horizon infrastructure.
  5. Click OK and the Horizon site is connected.
  6. Once connected you will be prompted to configure the Pod Connection Settings.
    If you would like to remove one of the Pod connections, select it from the dropdown and uncheck Add this Pod to ControlUp Console. It is highly recommended to configure a dedicated data collector.
    Click OK and the VMWare Horizon connection is complete.
