This is the first of five courses on managing a Citrix XenDesktop/XenApp 7.6 LTSR environment and/or preparing for the CCA-V certification. This course introduces Citrix XenDesktop/XenApp 7.6 LTSR, the certification, and the environment.
This course is the first in a Learning Path of five courses that cover Citrix XenDesktop/XenApp 7.6 LTSR as well as objectives for the CCA-V certification. Courses in this learning path follow directly before those in the Citrix XenDesktop/XenApp 7.6 LTSR CCP-V learning path. This course introduces Citrix XenDesktop/XenApp 7.6 LTSR, the CCA-V certification, the infrastructures of the virtual machine and virtual network, and the environment you can optionally build to follow along with the demonstrations.
Hey, this is Greg Shields, and you've found the first course in my learning path on Citrix XenDesktop version 7.6 and the CCA-V certification. I am Author Evangelist and a full-time author here at Pluralsight, and this is, I believe, the fifth version of XenDesktop in all its prior forms for which I've filmed training. This one's gonna' be good.
We're doing things just a bit different this time as we map closely to the objectives and tasks that Citrix makes public in their CCA-V exam preparation guide. We're also taking a different approach in that we're not so much talking about building a XenDesktop environment, but rather managing one that's already been constructed.
In this first course out of five, I'll be introducing Citrix XenDesktop 7.6 LTSR -- Citrix's first "Long Term Service Release" for this product, we'll discuss the CCA-V certification, and talk lightly about the environment you can optionally build if you don't already have a XenDesktop infrastructure to work with.
If you've just been handed a Citrix XenDesktop environment to manage, this course is your first stop in brushing up on those skills for success. And then from here, you'll be ready to continue on the learning path as we manage, maintain, monitor, and troubleshoot that XenDesktop infrastructure. Let's get started.
