I published the vSphere Client using Citrix XenApp to make it available to administrators on any machine they happened to log into on our network. There have been multiple occasions where I have been at a branch location and needed to access the vSphere client. Usually I just RDP to my desktop and access it from there, but since every machine in our environment is already set up to launch XenApp published apps I figured why not publish the vSphere client.
The vSphere Client is delivered like any other application. Just install the client on one (or more) of the XenApp Application Servers in your farm and then publish it as an “Accessed from a server” application from the Citrix Services Delivery Console. You can also install any plugins you want delivered with the client and they will be available.
Once the vSphere Client is published it will also be available using the Citrix Receiver app on an iPad. Just tap the icon in Citrix Receiver and the VMware vSphere Client login opens. Since you are logging into the XenApp server Windows Session Credentials can be used.
