Citrix released Access Gateway VPX

February 7, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

I already told you about running the Access Gateway on a XenServer or VMWare ESX host. Now Citrix officially released a virtual appliance based on the CAG 4.6.2, it has the same features and characteristics.

This virtual appliance is for XenServer only, Hyper-V and ESX are not supported yet, but this could change in a couple of weeks…

Citrix also changed the license, new customers of the Access Gateway VPX now get a new Access Gateway Platform License with one year of subscription. Connections made through CAG to XenApp hosted apps or XenDesktop are now supported with a single license.
The Universal Platform License is also getting cheaper. You can change your CAG Standard licence (CCU) to the new license for free.

Here you can read about the Reference Architecture and Download you can download the XVA file. You must have a Mycitrix account to get this and I heard you even have to own a physical Model 2000 or 2010 Appliance to get the VPX, but I’m not sure about that.

I already installed the CAG VPX on XenServer without problems.

1. Download the XVA file
2. Import the XVA to a XenServer
3. The initial configuration of the CAG is 1vCPU, 1 GB RAM and 2 disks, with 10 GB and 2 GB
4. XenTools 5.5 are installed
5. Similar to the Merchandising server you can make a basic configuration as known from the serial console of the CAG model 2000 and 2010
