Step-by-Step Guide

Once the Machine Catalog has been created, we now need to create a Delivery Group which is used to publish the applications running on the PVS Target Devices to users.

Note: The following article assumes that you already have a running and configured Citrix XenApp7.6 environment. If this isn’t the case, then please follow my Citrix XenApp 7.6 Install Guide first.

To create a XenApp 7.6 Delivery Group from the Machine Catalog we just created, follow these steps:

1. Log into a Citrix Delivery Controller and launch Citrix Studio

2. From Citrix Studio, click on Delivery Groups. From the action menu, click Create Delivery Group

3. The Create Delivery Group Wizard will display. Click Next

4. From the Machines screen, complete the following steps:

  1. Select the Machine Catalog you want to add into the Delivery Group (in this example we only have one that hasn’t been used – the PVS Machine Catalog)
  2. Chose the number of machines from the Machine Catalog that will be used in the Delivery Group (i.e. 2)
  3. Click Next

5. Select Applications and click Next

6. Add the Active Directory user(s) or group(s) that will have access to the Delivery Group. Click Next

7. Select the applications you want to publish and click Next

8. Enter a name and description for the Delivery Group and click Finish

9. Once completed, the new Delivery Group should appear in the Delivery Groups view of Citrix Studio
