Recently I have been struggling a little to get the XenDesktop VDA agent installed correctly during a ConfigMgr OSD deployment. I ended up with the following solution:
Create a folder (x86 and/or x64) and copy the following folders from the Citrix installation media. The XenDesktop installation will look for additional information in the other folders, so they are needed as well. Based on the installation parameters even more folders could be necessary.
Additional create a install.cmd with the following parameters:
SET OPTIONS=%OPTIONS% /NOREBOOT
SET OPTIONS=%OPTIONS% /MASTERIMAGE
SET OPTIONS=%OPTIONS% /COMPONENTS VDA
SET OPTIONS=%OPTIONS% /CONTROLLERS "controller1,controller2"
SET OPTIONS=%OPTIONS% /OPTIMIZE
SET OPTIONS=%OPTIONS% /ENABLE_REMOTE_ASSISTANCE
SET OPTIONS=%OPTIONS% /ENABLE_REAL_TIME_TRANSPORT
SET OPTIONS=%OPTIONS% /ENABLE_HDX_PORTS
if "%PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE%"=="AMD64" PUSHD "x64\XenDesktop Setup"
if "%PROCESSOR_ARCHITECTURE%"=="x86" PUSHD "x86\XenDesktop Setup"
START /WAIT XenDesktopVDASetup.exe %OPTIONS%
This will install the VDA client with the correct parameters.
Hope this will help you out.
In the next blog I will add information on how to install the Citrix Provisioning Services Agent Software, as this is combined in many installations when deploying a VDI solution.
