XenAppPrep 2.0 – Released

December 10th, 2008

Its been a while since I had a read over the new content on Shannon Ma’s blog.  He’s been busy writing articles and in amongst them all, I noticed a little announcement back in late October that I missed completely.

XenAppPrep 2.0 has finally been released!  you can download it from the XenApp Developer network site,  this page contains all the details on pre-requisites, installing and how to use the XenAppPrep tool.  I also found a nice article that Shannon had written about using XenAppPrep when you have Edgesight agents installed on your XenApp servers.

This is very handy and I will be passing this on to a number of people I work with.  We had an issue recently when a clone of a production citrix server was taken by a 3rd party for our DR site.  All the data that was registered for the production server in the Edgesight database appeared to switch allegiance and re-registered itself in the database against the new server name.  Think these articles and this tool will come in handy if we ever look to do any more cloning.

XenApp Cloning Tool

October 6th, 2008

I recently blogged about XenAppPrep which was being worked on and blogged about by Shannon Ma over at Citrix.  No update on it’s release date yet and I’m sure there are people out there who have a requirement to clone XenApp servers.  So in the meantime please find a link to the XenApp Cloning Tool which is available for download on  The latest release now adds support for the cloning of servers with the edgesight agent on it.

This is something that came up at my work recently,  our third party data centre partner cloned a production server for DR Purposes and when it came back up the edgesight agents re-registered all the data and statistics gathered in the database against the DR server instead of the original production one.  I’ll be passing on this link to them for future reference.
