- Windows 2008 R2 x64 - This will be the Citrix broker for the desktops and the web server.
- Windows 7 x86 - This will be the desktop we are connecting to with the Citrix plugin.
- Windows Active Directory - I will not be going through the setup in this walk through.
- vSphere 4.1 & vCenter 4.1 - This should be configured prior to this walk through.
Step 1. Windows 2008 R2 / Citrix Delivery Controller - I assume that you have installed VMware Tools, joined the server to the existing Active Directory and ready to install the Xen Broker. I have ISO mounting software and will transfer the XenDesktop5.iso to the desktop to run the installer.
