This edition is the last in the series. I’ve created a new XenReference page where I will keep the most recent version of the XenApp, XenDesktop and XenServer cards. My goal is to keep these in sync with the major releases of each product (e.g. XenServer 6.0, 6.5, 7.0, etc.). Each XenReference version will probably be released sometime after the exam comes out for the newer version. Now that I’ve had a chance to run through this process three times, I will be implementing some changes in future versions.
Future versions of the XenReference cards will be less exam centric and less “wordy”. As the purpose of the card is to be a reference, the goal of future versions will be to feature those things that you have to know to manage a XenApp/XenDesktop/XenServer environment but may not always be able to easily remember. Things like, maximum amount of memory a host can support, version of Windows required, version of SQL required, commands, ports, etc. As always, please feel free to share any feedback in the comments section!
This version has an updated look-and-feel from the XenReference card I created for XenApp. I used the same methods to create this card as I did the last one. The XenDesktop 5 Administration exam prep guide was used as a basic template for the content that went into the card but with minor variations. This is why the “XenServer” section is so short in this card, there was very little requirements listed in the prep guide. The purpose of this card is to be a quick reference guide for basic XenDesktop 5 information and a useful tool for studying for the “XenDesktop 5 Administration″ (1Y0-A19) exam. Feel free to comment with any suggestions on improving this document.
Stay tuned for the XenReference for XenServer card in the coming weeks…
Introducing the XenReference card for XenApp!
Click on either of the images to access the full PDF. Forbes Guthrie has been producing excellent “vReference” cards for VMware for a long time now and I’ve always thought something similar was needed for Citrix as well. The purpose of the card is to be a quick reference guide for basic XenApp 6 information and a useful tool for studying for the “Basic Administration for Citrix XenApp 6” (1Y0-A18) exam. I created the categories based off the XenApp 6 exam prep guide and used Citrix eDocs to create some of the content.
I fully intend to create updated versions of this document with more content and a more polished presentation. If anyone has any feedback, let me know. Content or category suggestions/alterations/deletions would be helpful as well as any suggestions regarding formatting. If you have an opinion on how to improve the document in any way, I’d love to hear it!
Stay tuned for the XenReference cards for XenDesktop and XenServer as well…
