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.
