Which two statements are true regarding Publishing Platform Layer? (Choose two.)
Scenario: A Citrix Engineer has implemented a multi-zone Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops site. The
setup is as follows:
The Primary zone has been implemented in Sweden.
The Satellite zones have been implemented in Finland, Norway and Denmark.
The Application named Sys-QA is hosted on Virtual Delivery Agent (VDA) machines which are
available in all the Satellite zones only.
The Application home zone for Sys-CA has been configured as Finland.
A user with user ID test1 has a disconnected session for Sys-QA in Norway.
Where will the session launch, if user test1 tries to reconnect to application Sys-QA?
Scenario: A Citrix Engineer needs to configure passthrough for user authentication on the Workspace
front. The engineer confirmed that Single Sign-on process is running on the user machine and all the
other settings are in place on the machine.
Which two steps should the engineer follow to make passthrough authentication work for the users?
Under Settings, select Configure Trusted Domains.
Citrix Gateway has more authentication options than StoreFront. Sometimes Citrix Gateway is
deployed in front of StoreFront just for the additional authentication options that Citrix Gateway
Scenario: A Citrix Engineer has been hired to work on daily troubleshooting issues like session hang,
Virtual Delivery Agent (VDA) registration issues, and non-responsive application issues. The engineer
will also need recent trends to prepare health check reports.
Which component/console should the engineer consider using?
Citrix Diagnostic Facility (CDF) trace log files. A subset of CDF traces called Always-on Tracing (AOT) is
also included. AOT information can be helpful when troubleshooting common issues such as VDA
registrations and application/desktop launches. No other Event Tracing for Windows (ETW)
information is collected.
What are two valid options to manage antivirus definition updates in a Citrix App Layering
deployment? (Choose two.)
Turn on auto updates, and let the updates get stored in the user's Personalization Layer. If auto
updates happen daily, this might be the most convenient approach. Note that whenever there is a
major product update, you'll need to reinstall on the UEP by redeploying the layer to the desktop
with the Reinstall the layer checkbox selected.
Turn off auto updates, and redeploy the layer for each update. This requires updating the layer
whenever you want to push out new updates.
Scenario: A Citrix Engineer is maintaining a Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops environment. The
engineer has deployed Workspace Environment Management (WEM) within the infrastructure. The
engineer has recently noticed that the two most commonly used applications are consuming
excessive disk contention and causing bottlenecks on the servers.
Which WEM System Optimization does the engineer need to use to address this issue?
SBC/HVD (Session-Based Computing/Hosted Virtual Desktop) tuning allows you to optimize the
performance of sessions running on Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops. While designed to improve
performance, some of the options might result in slight degradation of the user experience.
Which statement is valid regarding back-up of StoreFront Configuration?
Explanation: You can only import StoreFront configurations which are the same StoreFront version as
the target StoreFront installation. This includes CU versions. For example, you can export and import
the configuration between StoreFront version 1912 LTSR and 1912 LTSR, or between version 1912
LTSR CU1 and 1912 LTSR CU1, but not between version 1912 LTSR CU1 and 1912 LTSR CU2.
Scenario: A Citrix Engineer is managing a large Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops environment.
Recently, the users are complaining about slow sessions on random days. The engineer wants to use
a Citrix tool in order to have a baseline comparison of the users performance on a daily basis.
Which tool can the engineer use to accomplish this?
In which location is the resulting .VHD file stored by the Enterprise Layer Manager (ELM), when
creating layers or layered images with Citrix App Layering?
A Layer storage where the ELM creates, composites, and stores Layers and Layered Images. Local
storage is used for temporary files during the creation of Layers and Layered Images, and for
persistent files, for example, Layers and Image Templates. Administrators can define the Network File
Share location that will be used for Elastic Layers in the UMCs System and Settings.
Scenario: A Citrix Engineer configured two Sites: Production and Disaster Recovery. During an outage
in the Production Site, the Virtual Delivery Agent (VDA) registration in the Disaster Recovery Site has
What are two possible causes for this issue? (Choose two.)
How can a Citrix Engineer setup synchronization of subscription data between server groups using a
Scenario: A Citrix Engineer has two datacenters: Site A, the main datacenter and Site B, the
secondary datacenter. Both datacenters have Citrix App Layering 4.3 installed.
How can the engineer ensure that all layers are available in Site A and Site B?
What is the first step that the Enterprise Layer Manager (ELM) server takes when creating application
Which three components will be available during a SQL Server outage? (Choose three.)
Scenario: A Citrix Engineer recently took over a multi-zone environment with one Primary zone in
New York and two Secondary zones in San Francisco and Orlando respectively. The New York zone
has two Delivery Controllers, San Francisco has one Delivery Controller, and the Orlando zone has
two Delivery Controllers. The engineer received alerts that the Orlando zone Delivery Controllers
Where will the Orlando zone Virtual Delivery Agent (VDA) machines register?
