Citrix XenApp 6.5 – GPO Templates

I’ve recently been configuring a new Citrix XenApp 6.5 farm for one of my clients and as part of the deployment was looking through some articles on configuring the farm settings when I discovered the following post in Gerrish’s IT Blog about enabling the enhanced user interface features available with XenApp 6.5 (XenApp 6.5 – Enhanced Desktop Experience)

Alongside the implementation of a standardised user interface the post also explains how Citrix can automatically create some GPO templates to lock down the server farm so the users are not able to perform tasks they shouldn’t be able to do. These policies will need to be tweaked to match the requirements of your particular environmetn but provides a strong starting point for configuring and standardising your Citrix farm.
