    Started to learn XenApps which after doing ITIL is a pleasure. Been reading a lot that scripting is essential to XenApps. Can anyone explain if this is the case and what do you use scripting for? Is it to optimise the applications to run under XenApps?

    Craigie is probably your best bet mate, he's probably busy. He's the only CCA I can think of.

    Hello,
    Sorry if this is a late response but I have been away for a little while, scripting in XenApp really depends on which kind of role you have and how big a Citrix XenApp farm you manage.

    If you package/install applications for the Citrix XenApp farm then you would be wise (no pun intended) to look up creating scripted builds of .msi and .exe applications or creating wrapper scripts in batch or vbs.

    As for everyday maintenance vb script comes in handy for routine tasks and querying MFCOM which can be very handy... but once you have a few scripts written you can manipulate them to suit other tasks...

    Just my five pence!
