  1. I’m a 30-something technology professional who’s worked in IT for over 13 years. In the last few years, I’ve been able to concentrate in virtual technologies from Citrix, VMware, and Microsoft.

    I’ve had experience working in diverse environments such as architecture, small business, manufacturing/distribution, medical,and most recently government (federal). I’m currently a Certified Citrix Administrator (XenApp 4.0) and also have CompTia’s Network+.

    I now work in Atlanta, GA USA for a government contractor. You can view my LinkedIn profile for more information.

    I hope to put my day-to-day experiences in this blog with the hopes that it will provide some useful information to the community at large.

Documenting Citrix with PowerShell: Citrix Policies

Documentation is a vital (yet rarely loved) part of systems administration/engineering. Exhaustively documenting Citrix can turn your hair white. There are farm-wide settings, polices, application publishing properties, zone configuration, and that’s just the beginning.

We are in the midst of architecting a new Citrix environment where I work and we are taking advantage of this to review everything we have done before and changing it if needed. We’re also attempting to document
