XenApp 5 FP 2 First Impressions

I did my first XenApp 5 Feature Pack 2 upgrade/install today and I have to say that for the fist time the installer is actually quite nice.  If you hadn’t heard, Citrix has finally combined all of the components of XenApp into a single ISO image.

Now from a single DVD you can install XenApp 5.0 with HFRU5, Password Manager, EdgeSight, SmartAuditor, Web Interface, etc.  It made my upgrade process so easy all I had to do was run through the wizard select the components I wanted to upgrade and after a reboot all was done.

Even on a new installation I was able to save quite a bit of time as all of the components for Password Manager and EdgeSight were installed as a part of the overall XenApp installation.

Great job Citrix on getting all of this stuff together in one place!
