A20 Lesson 5 Adding farm administrators with AppCenter and PowerShell

By October 1, 2013No Comments



We start this lesson by installing the management tools for XenApp onto Windows 7; although we are able to manage the farm by connecting to a XenApp server, and using the tools that are installed with XenApp, this would use a license and it may be desirable to install the tools onto your own desktop. We install:

  • Group Policy extentions
  • PowerShell modules
  • AppCenter

With this in place we can look at adding administrators:

  • View Only
  • Full
  • Custom

The only admin in place so far is the user that created the farm, so we should at least add in another full administrative group. This can be done from AppCenter or PowerShell

Custom administrators have rights assigned to folders, we can create server folders to delegate administrative control to local admin teams. Permissions can be assigned to to folders and not objects within folders.
