Create published applications XenApp to each server

For testing purposes it can be helpful to have a published application without loadbalancing to every single server of your Citrix Farm. The creation of such application can be easily done with the following example script which create a CMD on every farm server:


Add-PSSnapin Citrix.XenApp.Commands -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue
$serverlist = Get-XAServer #Get all server from farm

#Mainprogram
# loop through all servers

 foreach($srv in $serverlist)
 {

 echo $srv.ServerName

 New-XAApplication -BrowserName "cmd on $srv" -ApplicationType "ServerInstalled" -DisplayName "cmd on $srv" -FolderPath "Applications/Published Apps/z_admin" -ClientFolder "Administration\cmd" -Enabled $true -CommandLineExecutable "C:\Windows\system32\cmd.exe" -WorkingDirectory "C:\Windows\system32" -AnonymousConnectionsAllowed $false -AddToClientStartMenu $false -InstanceLimit "-1" #-WindowType "1024×768" -ColorDepth "Colors256"

 Add-XAApplicationAccount -BrowserName "cmd on $srv" -Accounts "domain\USER1"
 Add-XAApplicationAccount -BrowserName "cmd on $srv" -Accounts "domain\USER2"
 Add-XAApplicationServer -BrowserName "cmd on $srv" -ServerNames $srv.ServerName

 }


By the way … if you made a mistake you can remove the created applications by the same foreach-loop with Remove-XAApplication:

 

$serverlist = Get-XAServer #Get all server from farm
#Mainprogram
# loop through all servers
foreach($srv in $serverlist)
 {
 
 echo $srv.ServerName
 Remove-XAApplication -BrowserName "cmd on $srv"
}
