Multiple domains sharing same UPN connecting to different VDI Server OS domains

Robby Lambrechts




We currently have 2 different domains (contoso.local and siteb.local), but all users exist on contoso.local and siteb.local with the same UPN accounts on site A and site B. There is a site to site VPN to Site A and site B with a 100mbps line.


Current setup SiteA (Xenapp 7.15):

Netscaler SiteA (citrix.contoso.com) (LDAP authentication happens on contoso.local) => DDC with (Storefront store.contoso.com) (joined to domain contoso.local) => VDI server OS based pool SiteA. (joined to contoso.local)


Now on SiteB we have an old XA 6.5 environment with 2 Application servers (joined to domain siteb.local). We want to delete the old application servers and just add  2 VDI server OS based pool to the same NS portal and DDC on siteA, however the 2 VDI server OS based pool are in a different domain (joined to siteb.local). These machines will be created by creating a new machine catalog on DDC siteA, the machines will then exist on SiteB via MCS.


Is it possible to authenticate the users with the UPN account on the NS and Storefront server with the same LDAP authentication to a different domain server OS based pool? Both AD's are using the same UPN account and password.


Summary: User connects with UPN through citrix.contoso.com (authenticates on contoso.local) (LDAP authentication happens on contoso.local on SiteA)  => to Delivery controller (Storefront store.contoso.com) (authenticates with UPN on contoso.local) to delivery group siteB (which points to the new machine catalog) => VDI server OS based pool located on SiteB (SiteB.local).


Will this work this way or will the logon fail, because another domain is used for the VDI Pool, although the user is logging on with UPN credentials?

Also is the performance going to be fine, because of connecting through a 100mbps line from SiteA to SiteB?


Thanks in advance.
