Installing and Configuring Citrix XenApp 7.7 – Part 5: Create Server OS Delivery Groups

Delivery Groups are collections of users given access to a common group of resources. Delivery Groups contain machines from your Machine Catalogs, and Active Directory users who have access to your Site. Often it makes sense to assign users to your Delivery Groups by their Active Directory group because both Active Directory groups and Delivery Groups are ways of grouping together users with similar requirements.Each Delivery Group can contain machines from more than one Machine Catalog, and each catalog can contribute machines to more than one Delivery Group, but each individual machine can only belong to one Delivery Group at a time. You can set up a Delivery Group to deliver applications, desktops, or both.You define which resources users in the Delivery Group can access. For example, if you want to deliver different applications to different users, one way to do this is to install all the applications you want to deliver on the master image for one Machine Catalog and create enough machines in that catalog to distribute among several Delivery Groups. Then you configure each Delivery Group to deliver a different subset of the applications installed on the machines.
