In this last part of the blog series, I will create a virtual machine and install the Citrix Cloud Connector software on this machine. It is important that the VM can reach the domain and join it since a Citrix Cloud Connector has to be domain joined before it will install. In my case, here I have the VPN up
In this part of the series I want to add the VPN to the solution and this includes the Virtual Network Gateway, the Local Gateway and the Connection objects in Azure and then I will also show you the setup in my ubiquiti setup I run at home. The VPN connection is a great way to get something running in
In this part of the series, I want to create the Azure vNet and subnets for my Azure environment. I will be creating a hub/spoke topology where the hub will be connected to my on-premises environment later in this series. To get started with networking, I read through the modules and providers that Terraform provides. You can find it here.
In this part of the series, I want to start creating my resource groups with Terraform. There are more ways to do this, but since I have been working with automation a bit, I know I want to start with a list of resource group names and make a loop through these. The first step is to create a list
In this series, I want to go through deploying a complete infrastructure in Azure using Terraform. My goal is to create a virtual network, network security groups, VPN to on-premises, a couple of virtual machines with Citrix Cloud connector installed on them. I am learning this myself as I go through this series, so if anyone reading this has some
In this article, I want to show you how easy it is to create a new Active Directory domain for demo environments. If you want something for production, there are some additional steps to take, but I won’t cover that here. You can use Azure DSC for many configurations, like setting up a domain controller, as I will show here.
In this post, I want to provide an overview of Citrix’s enhancements to their Virtual Apps and Desktops Cloud service (CVADS) through 2020 that I feel is significant. Citrix introduced vertical load balancing in January, meaning that each Virtual Apps VM will be filled to max load before the next VM is used. This ensures that the cost customers might
If you have ever worked with Azure DevOps and Azure PowerShell, you most likely also banged your head into the wall trying to get the release pipeline to use the latest version. I have run into this a few times myself, and this time around, I choose to stick with it until I found a solution, and I did. Most
Hi all, In this last part of the blog series about Azure DevOps for the Ops consultant I want to show you how to create the release pipeline for Azure deployments. The release pipeline is where the code written gets into the environment where it is used. Normally the first release pipeline would push to the development environment, but with
Hi all,In this part of the series, I want to focus on the build pipeline. In short, the build pipeline will provide the rest of your pipelines with artifacts. Artifacts can be files, folders, or compiled code, and in my case here, it will be PowerShell files. As you will see in the series, I also use Pester tests to
