SQL Requirements for XenApp 7.15LTSR

Here are the requirements I ran across needing for the SQL backend portion for XenApp 7.15LTSR. I had to initially get full sa permission so that XenApp could setup it’s 3 databases. We couldn’t get it to work otherwise. After that, we were able to step down the permission as listed below.


SQL Requirements

  1. SQL server (stand alone or cluster/AG. If cluster/AG, then additional setup is needed.
  2. Five total drives. Two drives for OS and SQL install and one for each DATA, TEMP, and LOG.
  3. Service account to run SQL.
  4. Service account for XenApp server for adds to the farm.
  5. Service account for PVS if using PVS.
  6. Permissions for account: dbowner and securityadmin. Securityadmin is needed to create the machine account access to the database.
  7. SQL Database for Site, ConfigurationLogging, and Monitoring for XenApp.
  8. If you are using Session Recording, you will also need CitrixSessionRecording and CitrixSessionRecordingLogging.
