A20 Lesson 6 Adding worker groups to the farm using AppCenter and PowerShell

By October 1, 2013No Comments

Having installed AppCenter and the PowerShell modules in lesson 5, where we also created administrators; the next stage of the initial administration will be to add worker groups, groups of XenApp servers stored in the farm database. These Worker Groups can be used to assign applications, policies and for fail-over load-balancing. We will see their use later, for the time being we can create the worker groups. This can be based on:

  • Farm Servers
  • Domain OUs
  • Domain Server groups

Ultimately they will contain XenApp servers but if your AD is already organized thenwe can make use of the AD OU or group structure within worker groups. They can be created within AppCenter of from the PowerShell command line:

New-XAWorkerGroup -WorkerGroupNameAllServers -ServerNames XA1, XA2 -ComputerName XA1
