What’s new in Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops 7 1811

Delivery Groups: New Studio interface for creating machine restart schedules

In earlier releases, you used Studio to create a restart schedule for machines in a Delivery Group. To create multiple schedules, you used PowerShell cmdlets. Now, the updated Studio interface enables you to create and manage one or more restart schedules.

A schedule can affect either:

  • One or more (but not all) machines in the group. The machines are identified by a tag that you apply to the machine. This is called a tag restriction, because the tag restricts an action to only items (in this case, machines) that have the tag.

WEM Administration Console – Part 2 (System Optimization, Policies & Profiles and Security)

Update of the article to the Workspace Environment Management Version 1906.

About Citrix Workspace Environment Management Console Version 1906.0.1.1

Now I continue with the second part of the series about the WEM Administration Console. I give an insight into the menu items System Optimization, Policies & Profiles and Security.

System Optimization

When your virtual machines have different hardware configurations, consider creating multiple configuration sets for them, and configuring the system optimization settings differently for each configuration set. Machines can only belong to one configuration set.

Known issues until Citrix WEM 1808

A short listing of the older WEM topics that I noticed and can serve as an argument for you to update to WEM 1808.

Intermittent crashes of Norskale Broker Service

If the above service terminates, resources can no longer be distributed from this server. This is due to a memory allocation error that WEM still makes in the earlier versions.
