I have recently used the following iApps to build out a remote access solution using APM and it works great. I do have a couple of questions about these iapps though.
f5.microsoft_exchange_owa_2007 - Why does this template not configure portal access when OWA is listed in F5 documentation as being a good example of what portal access is for?
f5.citrix_xenapp_xendesktop.2012_06_27 - Why does this template not implement a Application Access Remote Desktop for Citrix remote desktop functionality when Citrix remote desktop is a good example of what Application Access Remote Desktops are for are they not?
Im completely happy with the performance of what I have implemented using iapps and UAT testing is going well but its coming to handover to support \ documentation time and I need to train up the rest of the team (from architects to support) on our implementation and APM as a whole and I cannot answer these questions!
Any help greatly appreciated!
The iApp templates are designed to cover the most common/requested deployment scenarios. The OWA 2007 APM portal deployment is one that was never popular enough to warrant an iApp.
There is a possibility that we would do this in the future, but it would most likely be a standalone iApp that would apply only to OWA 2010 and 2013.
I recommend chatting about this with your F5 sales engineer, so that they can promote your request to the iApp developers.
The Citrix iApp should create and implement a Citrix remote desktop profile when replacing Web interface servers and using APM (answer yes to question "Will you be using APM or Edge Gateway to securely proxy application traffic and authenticate users into your Citrix environment?", and yes to question "Do you want to replace Citrix Web Interface servers with the BIG-IP system?"). This setup uses F5's dynamic webtops to display available published applications rather then Citrix's web interface server. Also, there is a newer iApp located on devcentral which include support for Xendesktop 7 and storefront if you are interested.
