RFC (Request for Comment): a Naming schema for Citrix NetScaler ADC


In my day-to-day work (audits, project management, project oversight, architecture, …), I usually see Citrix NetScaler ADCs administered by someone else. In my audits, one of my first steps is checking for a consistent naming scheme. NetScalers tend to be chaotic if naming is chaotic. Of course, one can argue that the naming of objects is not essential, but for me, it is also a gauge of how...

Splitting up a NetScaler site using admin partitions

What do we need to create a Citrix environment at home?


last update: May 5th 2020 We all love to cook in our own Citrix environment. What do we need to be successfull? Well, even though this question may sound funny it is one of the most frequently asked questions in some of these Citrix forums out there.
