XENAPP - How to add a machine with a specific name

Hans Gilgen


We have 15 XENAPP servers (XENAPP01-XENAPP15). I had a problem with XENAPP06 so I put it in Maintenance Mode. Then I deleted the machine from AD, Machine Catalog, and from vSphere. Now I want to add XENAPP06 back to the machine catalog. Is this possible? When I go to Studio>Machine Catalog>Add Machines I can’t get a machine added with that specific name, it will only add a machine at the end of the naming scheme (XENAPP16). I’ve tried both options of “Create new Active Directory accounts” & “Use existing Active Directory accounts”. How can I get the exact name added as XENAPP06? Thanks

I finally got the issue resolved by doing the following:
Created machine in AD as XENAPP06
On the controller went to Studio>Machine Catalog>Add Machines
Set “Number of machines to add:” to 1 and click “Next”
Clicked the radio button for “Use existing Active Directory accounts”
Clicked “Browse” and then navigated to XENAPP06
Chose the radio button for “Reset all account passwords”, click “Next”, and then “Finish”
The machine then got created in vmware, but needed to be powered on.
Went back to Studio>Search>Server OS Machines. The machine was unregistered, but after a few minutes became registered.
Right clicked the machine and chose “Add to Delivery Group” and added to the appropriate delivery group.
