Citrix XenDesktop Migration
from Windows XP, Citrix Presentation Server, Citrix XenApp in Seconds!
Liquidware Labs ProfileUnity supports easy Citrix XenDesktop migration in as little as three seconds! See this quick demo video of a Citrix XenDesktop migration of a user from XenApp with a V1 profile (Server 2003/XP interface) to XenDesktop with a V2 profile (Windows 7).
The following steps outline how easy it is to perform a Citrix XenDesktop migration even for hundreds, thousand, or tens of thousands of users to the platform from other desktop platforms using the advanced features in ProfileUnity FlexApp!
1) During install, place the ProfileUnity FlexApp executable on an accessible server in your existing desktop infrastructure.
The domain controller is suggested but not required. Any path where clients have read access to the .exe. No software is ever installed on desktops. A Group Policy setting runs the .exe over the network at login.
2) Set ProfileUnity's user Portability settings to make user profiles available in any version of Windows.
ProfileUnity seamlessly supports any version of Windows XP/2000/Vista/7 and makes moving back and forth from V1 profiles to V2 profiles seamless to end-users. The data is always kept in Windows native format, there are no databases or shell Windows experiences to manage or be locked into. User profiles are also fully compatible with Citrix UPM.
3) Use ProfileUnity FlexApp to migrate local documents and files.
ProfileUnity also can be set to perform a background sync of user documents and files. Network transfer speeds can be adjusted with built-in throttling options.
4) When your XenDesktop environment is built, simply have users login to XenDesktop and they are instantly migrated to XenDesktop (in as little as three seconds).
Users' profiles from their legacy Windows experience is made available and their previous documents are ready to use! Users can seamlessly log back into their old environment or any other Windows environment and their user profile and data is instantly made available.
