This FAQ is designed to cover the questions regarding running MicroStation CONNECT Edition in a certified Virtualized environment.
As of now, only Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop environment are certified
Usually the version of XenApp XenDesktop certified is listed on MicroStation Readme file on Virtual Environment session.
You will need to check on the Readme file of your version of MicroStation to see what Citrix XenApp and/or XenDesktop is certified to run on.
For other applications, you may need to check with their responsible parties, to verify their certified environments. Usually, on their ReadMe files, you may find your answer..
No. Only versions of MicroStation CONNECT Edition using SES licensing are certified. All other versions and environments are not certified. For more information, feel free to search and/or post your inquiry on Be Communities forum (http://communities.bentley.com/).
Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop are the application we certified at this time, and the versions will depend upon MicroStation version. See "What versions of MicroStation are certified in a Virtualized environment" above . However, you should check from time to time for possible additions to certified environments.
This will depend upon the XenApp/XenDesktop version. That needed to be defined by who will install Citrix environment in your corporation.
Installing, configuring, and optimizing performance is supported through the providers of the virtualized solution and/or your IT department. Bentley only certifies his applications to run on their environment
Issues that relate specifically to functionally within the certified environment.
The number of connections is based on the hardware requirements of Citrix. Bentley has no guidance on how many connections can be made.
This can mean a lot of different things and includes many technologies depending on the type of virtualization. MicroStation was tested and certified to run on Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop.Application Virtualization (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Application_virtualization)
The application is delivered from the server to the client at run-time (when the application is started from the client). The application is not "installed" in the traditional sense, but the application will function as if it was.
