Citrix Xenapp 6.5 to newest version

Niels van Leeuwen




I have done Citrix in the past and want to upgrade/migrate a customer from XenApp 6.5 to 1912LTSR

The setup now:

1  x Citrix Secure Gateway 3.3.2 with Webinterface 

4  x XenApp host servers


Around 100 clients (desktops and laptops together)


Is there an upgrade possibility or do you advise to setup a whole new 1912LTSR setup with netscaler next to the 6.5 farm ? 

I hope you can send me the right path to walk so I can investigate some more before the migration takes place.

Definitely new environment. The OS would be different so you need to rebuild anyways. If you have a small number of apps, then simply recreate the published apps. Otherwise, there are scripts that can export published apps configurations and import to new farm.


If you're not familiar with 1912, then see https://docs.citrix.com/en-us/citrix-virtual-apps-desktops/1912-ltsr/install-configure.html. I also have some instructions at https://www.carlstalhood.com/xaxd/citrix-virtual-apps-and-desktops-cvad-1912-ltsr/

Hi Carl,


I have started a new setup as you advised me to make the migration from 6.5 to new. 

I will use this citrix components to accomplish:

StoreFront 1912 LTSR, Cumulative Update 2
Delivery Controller, Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops 7 2012
Citrix Workspace App: Citrix Workspace app 19.12.2000 for Windows, LTSR Cumulative Update 2

Netscaler: Citrix ADC VPX for ESXi 13.0 Build 71.44


We have around 100 users and will setup this without any failover. So 1 Server with Delivery controller, Licensing, Storefront all at the same server. 

I have the delivery controller site created on the SQL express (default insallation) and now want to use certificates To enable SSL for a Delivery Controller


I am struggling not only which DNS names to use but also which certificates. We have a public Wildcard certificate so I prefer to use a public signed certificate instead of an internal CA but 

I don't know if this can be done or do you advise an internal CA? Maybe I have to use local DNS names like .local instead of public dns records and so public certificates like .com

And how will clients connect ? Will the internal domain clients connect to storefront.test.com for example and the remote workers to remote.test.com ? 

I hope you can help me out :)

Thx already,
