Citrix XenDesktop 4 – Supported configuration?

This afternoon Rob Sanders posted a link to  CTX114501 Supported Databases for Citrix Products, I’ve seen this matrix before but I did notice something in this matrix. The following products aren’t supported by Citrix on a supported Microsoft database platform:

  • Citrix SmartAuditor 1.2
  • Citrix EdgeSight for NetScaler
  • Citrix XenApp Fundamentals 3.0
  • Citrix XenDesktop 4.0
  • Citrix XenDesktop 3.0

Especially the last two are noticeable, they are supported by Citrix when they run on SQL 2005 SP2 but this is out of support by Microsoft:


So reading this it’s suggested that there’s no way to have a fully supported Citrix XenDesktop 4 configuration on a Microsoft SQL platform
