It just hit the web, the plugin for Citrix MCS on Nutanix AHV. You can find it on our portal at My.Nutanix.com, support, Tools & Firmware. I’ve blogged about this previously in the blog that was called Citrix MCS for AHV: Under the hood but now it’s finally available for the masses.

Citrix MCS for AHV; it’s been a hot topic since the release of XenDesktop 7.7 so here’s my explanation of what’s going on under the hood when we look at Citrix MCS for AHV. First I’ll start with a short description of the components and in the end there’s a alpha-demo video on the integration piece.
This week I got a request via Matthijs van den Berg, one of the Nutanix SEs in EMEA. He was working with a Dutch Service Provider that has standardised its complete infrastructure deployment using PowerShell as the glue between components.
With the announcement of Citrix supporting Nutanix’s Acropolis Hypervisor in August 2015 we’ve started developing the first integration points for XenDesktop 7.6 FP3 (first supported VDA on AHV) and we started of with phase 1 (and yes, there’s more to come!) which is Citrix Power Management on AHV.
As I was going through cycles to deliver our next Reference Architecture for running Citrix workloads on Nutanix Acropolis hypervisor I realised that I didn’t capture the full steps to run Citrix XenDesktop on Nutanix Acropolis Hypervisor so this blogpost is have a workflow ready to make sure that you have all the steps covered to do a successful deployment.
As I’m working on a solution note for Citrix NetScaler VPX on Nutanix Acropolis Hypervisor (AHV) I was looking to deploy the VPX on AHV and not completely coincidentally Ronnie Hamilton asked me if I had some tips on how to deploy the NetScaler VPX on AHV which was enough reason write a new blogpost.
