    1. Creation of OS Layer Using Windows Server

    The Operating System Layer consists solely of the basic operating system (along with patches) and VMware Tools. Platform and Application Layers are often where other components are deployed. For any Windows OS, only one OS layer is required. If you support both a Windows desktop OS and a Windows Server OS, for example, establish a separate OS layer for each. The OS layer you use is required by the platform and app layers you create.

    When one of the OS layers is updated, the platform and app layers developed with that OS continue to run. Ideally, you should develop a single generic OS layer and use it in all of your layered graphics. Because App and Platform layers only interact with the OS layer that created them, layer maintenance is kept to a minimum. If you need to support both a desktop and a server operating system, this is the way to go. You only need to run Windows Updates on the OS Layer if you install .NET Frameworks in the OS Layer. Office, on the other hand, should always be installed as an Application Layer.

    • An OS Layer is used to generate the other layers (Platform and Application). These layers are tied to a single OS layer and can't be utilized on any other. You might have to recreate the Platform Layer if you upgrade the hypervisor tools in the OS Layer.
    • Any program (such as XenApp 6.5) that creates local users should be put in the OS Layer. Changes to local groups or users are not captured by the Platform Layer or Application Layer.
    1. Before creating the OS Layer, ensure the server has NOT been joined to a domain:

    1. You can download Citrix app layer machine tools from https://www.citrix.com/downloads and install the Citrix App Layering 2102 OS Machine Tools.

    1. The Citrix Optimizer is a Windows application that assists Citrix administrators in optimizing several components of their environment, most notably the operating system with Virtual Delivery Agent (VDA). The program is built on PowerShell, but it also has a graphical user interface.

    Citrix Optimizer has three modes of operation:

    • Analyze: compare the present system to a template and highlight any differences.
    • Execute (available only in PowerShell mode): apply the template's optimizations
    • Rollback (available only in PowerShell mode: revert the previously applied optimization adjustments

    Right click on Citrix Optimizer and “Run as administrator.” Disable the unused services using the Citrix Optimizer tool.
