AppDNA Installation Guide

This guide is designed to be used in conjunction with the AppDNA Setup and Optimization Best Practice Guide, which discusses the various configuration options and provides hardware recommendations. This guide covers the following: Citrix AppDNA platform requirements Installing IIS and ASP.NET Step-by-step instructions for installing AppDNA Step-by-step instructions for upgrading AppDNA Configuring new and upgraded installations Note: Using the Configure AppDNA Environment wizard for other tasks (such as to create a new database, transfer a license, and reconfigure an AppDNA Web site) is covered in the AppDNA Administration Guide.

AppDNA Platform Requirements

This section provides information about the operating systems that AppDNA is supported on, as well as the essential pre-requisites. For more detailed recommendations, see the AppDNA Setup and Optimization Best Practice Guide.

Supported Operating Systems


AppDNA is a client-server application. The AppDNA server is supported on the following OS platforms: Microsoft Windows 7 SP1 (32-bit and 64-bit editions) Microsoft Windows Server 2003 SP2 (32-bit and 64-bit editions) Microsoft Windows Server 2008 SP2 (32-bit and 64-bit editions) Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 Note: Citrix recommends installing the AppDNA server component on Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 when it is being used in a production capacity. The AppDNA client is supported on all of the server platforms and also: Microsoft Windows XP SP3 (32-bit and 64-bit editions) Microsoft Windows Vista SP2 (32-bit and 64-bit editions)

AppDNA Platform Requirements

Pre-Requisites
Pre-requisite Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Service Pack 1 Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 Microsoft SQL Server 2005 SP3, Microsoft SQL Server 2008 SP3, Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 SP1, or Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2 SP1 Express Edition (built-in 10GB limit on database size) Installation type AppDNA server AppDNA client AppDNA server only The SQL Server installation can be on the same or a different machine as the AppDNA server. The SQL Server instance must be configured for Latin1_General_CI_AS collation To install the AppDNA database, you need an account with the sysadmin server role. During the configuration of AppDNA, you need to specify a user account for the AppDNA Web site to use when connecting to the database. This account must have the bulkadmin server role and the db_owner database role. If you use Windows authentication, this user account must have administrator privileges on the machine on which the AppDNA Web server is running, or, if that is not possible, the permissions on the AppDNA Web site folder must be relaxed to give readwrite permissions to the user account. In addition, if the AppDNA server is installed on Windows Server 2003, this user account must be in the IIS_WPG group. Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) AppDNA server only (production systems). See instructions for installing IIS below. The name of the machine on which you install the AppDNA server must conform to the IIS requirements for domain names: it must consist only of Latin characters a through z, A through Z, digits 0 through 9, or the hyphen character (-). The name must not start or end with a hyphen and must not contain an underscore (_) character. For an evaluation or proof of concept (POC) single-user system, you can optionally use the built-in AppDNA personal Web Server (PWS) instead. This does not require IIS.

AppDNA Platform Requirements

Pre-requisite Internet Explorer 6 or later

Installation type AppDNA client and server JavaScript and unencrypted forms must be enabled.

Important: The AppDNA server cannot be installed on a machine on which the Citrix license server is already installed.

Additional Requirements
The following AppDNA features are dependent on additional software: Install Capture This requires the use of a virtual machine based on one of the supported desktop virtualization technologies VMware Workstation 7.1, VMware Server 2.x or Microsoft Virtual Server. If you have a Production Manager license, the capture process can create App-V sequences, XenApp profiles or installable MSI files instead of (or as well as) MSI files simply for importing into AppDNA. This requires additional software to be installed on the virtual machine. For example, in order to create App-V sequences the App-V sequencer must be installed. Similarly, in order to create XenApp profiles, the XenApp profiler must be installed. This additional software does not come with AppDNA. See the AppDNA Install Capture Configuration Guide for more information. Organization Reports This supplementary feature requires access to Microsoft Active Directory and Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) data, which is imported into AppDNA statically. Exporting the data from Active Directory and SCCM requires administrator access to the Active Directory and SCCM servers. However, AppDNA provides a stand-alone tool that administrators can run on the Active Directory domain controller and SCCM server. AppDNA 6.1 supports SCCM 2003 and SCCM 2007. See the AppDNA Integration Guide for full details. Discover Applications This optional feature depends on access to the Lakeside SysTrack database. See the AppDNA Integration Guide for full details. Word exports Some of the report views (such as the Effort Calculator) provide an option to export the results as a Word document. This requires Microsoft Word 2007 or Microsoft Word 2010 to be installed on the client machine. PDF exports The application issues report view has an option to export a report in the form of a PDF document. This requires Adobe Reader to be installed on the client machine.

AppDNA Platform Requirements

Installing to a Virtual Machine


You can install AppDNA 6.1 to a virtual machine. However, this has implications for Install Capture. Install Capture is used to import applications for which you do not have a Windows installer (MSI) file or the SFT file of an App-V application and to package applications. Install Capture requires the use of a virtual machine that is configured so that it can communicate with the AppDNA host machine and vice versa. The details of configuring the Install Capture virtual machine vary depending on the virtualization technology that you are using. See the AppDNA Install Capture Configuration Guide for detailed information on this. Some of the supported technologies (VMware Workstation and Microsoft Virtual Server) require AppDNA to be installed on the virtual machines host machine. This is not possible when AppDNA is itself installed in a virtual machine. However, Install Capture can be used when AppDNA is running in a virtual machine if the virtualization technology provides full remote control (such as VMware Server). The AppDNA Self Provisioning feature provides an alternative mechanism for Install Capture tasks and is suitable for use when AppDNA is installed in a virtual machine. See the AppDNA Advanced Feature Guide for an overview of Self Provisioning.

Installing IIS and ASP.NET


This section describes how to install Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) and ASP .NET. The details of how to do this vary between Windows Server 2008 and the other supported versions of Windows. However, with one or two exceptions, you need to select the same features. Note: IIS is required on the AppDNA server only. For complete installations on a single machine for example, for evaluation or POC purposes you can optionally use the built-in AppDNA personal Web Server (PWS) instead, which is not dependent on IIS. On Windows 7: 1. Open the Control Panel and then select Programs and Features. 2. Select Turn Windows Features On or Off. This opens the Turn Windows Features on or off dialog, which shows optional features in a tree view. There may be a delay while the tree view is populated. 3. Look for the Internet Information Services feature. Expand the item in the tree view and ensure that the sub-features listed below are selected.

AppDNA Platform Requirements

On Windows Server 2008: 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. Open the Control Panel and then select Programs and Features. Select Turn Windows Features On or Off. Right-click the Roles item and select Add Roles.

Installing AppDNA

AppDNA is a client/server application. The server includes a Web server and a SQL Server database. These can be on the same or different physical machines. In production systems, Citrix recommends that you use the full IIS-based Web server. In evaluation or proof of concept (POC) installations, you can use the built-in AppDNA personal Web server (PWS), which does not require IIS. Note: Before installing AppDNA for use in a production capacity, Citrix recommends that you refer to the AppDNA Setup and Optimization Best Practice Guide. This provides detailed hardware and software recommendations for different scenarios. There are two installers for AppDNA: Citrix AppDNA.msi This is the standard installer. Use this for all client installations, upgrades, and the installation of the AppDNA server for production systems. Citrix AppDNA Quick DB Installation.msi This is identical to the standard installer, except that it includes a backed up database, which makes the initial server set up faster. However, the database has a fixed name, which cannot be changed. In addition, you can restore the database only if the SQL Server installation is on the same machine as the AppDNA server. This installer is suitable for new installations for evaluation and POC purposes only. This installer takes longer to download than the standard installer.

Use the installer that is most appropriate to your needs. The installation is the same for both installers, with a minor difference in the configuration stage, which is noted in the instructions that follow. Important: If you are upgrading AppDNA from a previous release, see Upgrading AppDNA.

11

Installing AppDNA

Install AppDNA
Note: These steps apply to upgrading AppDNA as well as installing for the first time. However, if you are upgrading, Citrix recommends that you read Upgrading AppDNA before you carry out these steps. 1. To begin the AppDNA installation, run the AppDNA installer.

2. On the Welcome Screen, click Next.

3. Click I accept the terms in the license agreement, and then click Next.

12

Installing AppDNA

4. Select one of the following options: Client only This installs the AppDNA client only. This is an installation of the AppDNA application, which connects to an AppDNA Web site and database that are located on another machine (sometimes the database is on a different machine from the AppDNA Web site). At the end of the installation, the Configure AppDNA Environment wizard walks through the steps to configure the client to point to the AppDNA Web site and database. Complete (server + client) This installs the AppDNA server and client files together on the same machine. At the end of the installation, the Configure AppDNA Environment wizard walks through the steps to create (or upgrade) the SQL Server database and configure the AppDNA Web site. The database can be installed and configured on the local machine or on a machine located on the network. 5. Click Next to continue with the installation. If the pre-requisites are not installed on the machine, a dialog will open informing you that these are missing. If this happens, click Cancel to exit the installation. Then install the pre-requisites. (These are documented in AppDNA Platform Requirements.) Then start the AppDNA installation again.

13

Installing AppDNA

6. Specify the location for the AppDNA client files, and for the server files if you are doing a complete installation. Citrix recommends that you use the default locations:
Platform 32-bit 64-bit Client C:\Program Files\Citrix\AppDNA C:\Program Files (x86)\Citrix\AppDNA Server C:\Program Files\Citrix\AppDNA\Server C:\Program Files (x86)\Citrix\AppDNA\Server

7. Click Next to continue with the installation.

8. Click Install to begin the installation. This starts the installation. When the installation has finished, the Installation Wizard Completed dialog opens.

By default, the option to launch the Configure AppDNA Environment wizard is selected. You use this to configure the installation. You need to do this before you can use AppDNA.

14

Installing AppDNA

9. Click Finish to finish the installation and (if selected) launch the Configure AppDNA Environment wizard. The wizard varies according to the type of installation or upgrade you are doing:
If you are Installing a complete installation Installing or upgrading a client installation Upgrading a complete or server installation See Configure a Complete Installation Configure a Client Installation Upgrade a database

Note: You can launch the Configure AppDNA Environment wizard later. To do this, choose Citrix AppDNA > Management Tools > AppDNA Configuration from the Windows Start > Programs menu.

15

Configure a Complete Installation

This section provides step-by-step instructions for using the Configure AppDNA Environment wizard to configure a complete new AppDNA installation (for example, for an evaluation of AppDNA) or a server installation for a production system. Note: The AppDNA Configuration Wizard creates the new database files in the default database file location set in SQL Server. If you want the database files to be stored in a different location, you need to change the default location in SQL Server before you run the wizard. See Setting the location of the database files for more information. The wizard opens by default when you finish the installation step. (To open the wizard later, choose Citrix AppDNA > Management Tools > Configure AppDNA from the Windows Start menu.)

1. Select Configure new installation and then click Next. Note: If you need more information at any time when working through this wizard, click Need help? in the lower left corner.

16

Configure a Complete Installation

2. This step has two options, but only one is enabled - depending on whether Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) is installed on your machine. Production Web server This option creates an AppDNA Web server based on IIS. This is recommended and is a requirement if you are configuring a production AppDNA system. You can also use this option for an evaluation or trial installation. If this option is not enabled, it means that IIS is not installed on your machine. If you want to use this option, cancel out of the wizard and install and configure IIS (for instructions, see Installing IIS and ASP.NET). Then, start this wizard again, and this option will be selected. Single machine Web server This option uses the AppDNA built-in personal Web server (PWS). This option is automatically selected if you do not have IIS installed on your machine. This option is suitable if you are configuring AppDNA for an evaluation and you are not able to install IIS. This option does not support multiple AppDNA clients.

3. Click Next to move to the next step.

17

Configure a Complete Installation

4. AppDNA uses a Microsoft SQL Server database to store the data in. Specify the name of the new database, the location of the SQL Server instance and the connection details: Server name Enter this as Machine\Instance, where Machine is the name of the machine that hosts the SQL Server installation and Instance is the SQL Server instance if a named instance is in use. If a named instance is not in use, omit the backslash (\). Database name The name of the new database. This must be unique within the SQL Server instance. Generally, this defaults to AppDNADB, but you can change it. Note: If you used the Citrix AppDNA Quick DB installer, the database name defaults to AppDNA and a note appears under the Database name box. Accept this default name if the SQL Server installation is on the local machine and you want to restore the database included in the installer. This is faster than creating a new database. Otherwise, change the name to create a new database. Database authentication In this section you enter the credentials for connecting to SQL Server when creating the database. Regardless which authentication method is in use, the user account must have the sysadmin server role. Windows authentication This type of authentication uses the logged on Windows user account when connecting to the database. The user account must have a password set. SQL Server authentication This opens two additional prompts: o User name Enter the user name to use to connect to SQL Server and create the database and database tables.

18

Configure a Complete Installation

Password Enter the account password.

5. Click Next to move to the next step.

Note: This step does not appear if you are using the AppDNA built-in personal Web server (PWS). When you use this option, by default AppDNA uses the logged on user's credentials when connecting to the AppDNA database after it is created. If you want AppDNA to connect to the database using SQL Server authentication, you need to run this wizard again and change the credentials as explained in the AppDNA Administration Guide. 6. In this step, you specify the credentials that the AppDNA Web site is to use when connecting to the database after it is created. Citrix recommends that in a production system you use an AppDNA-specific service account that has a password that does not expire instead of the account used in the previous step to create the database. Authentication This determines the authentication mechanism for connecting to SQL Server when the AppDNA Web site connects to the database. Regardless which authentication method is in use, the user must have the bulkadmin server role and the db_owner database role. Windows authentication This type of authentication uses the logged on Windows user account when connecting to the database. Specify the user name and password of the account you want the AppDNA Web site to run under. Citrix recommends that, in a production system, this is a service account that has a password that does not expire. In an evaluation or trial system, you can typically use the currently logged in user account. This account must have local administrator privileges or, if that is not possible, the permissions on the AppDNA Web site folder must be relaxed to give read-write permissions

19

Configure a Complete Installation

to the user specified here. (By default, the AppDNA Web site folder is C:\Program Files (x86)\Citrix\AppDNA\Server on a 64-bit system or C:\Program Files\Citrix\AppDNA\Server on a 32-bit system.) In addition, if the AppDNA server is installed on Windows Server 2003, this user must be in the IIS_WPG group (see Additional configuration for Windows Server 2003 for more information). The Windows user account must have a password set. SQL Server authentication This type of authentication uses specific SQL Server login details, which you enter below.

User name If you chose SQL Server authentication, enter the user name that the AppDNA Web site is to use to connect to SQL Server. If you chose Windows authentication, specify the domainqualified Windows username for example, domain\username. Password Enter the account password. 7. Click Next to move to the next step.

8. In this step you can choose to activate a commercial AppDNA license or run AppDNA in evaluation mode for up to 30 days: Activate now Select this option if you want to activate your license now. You now need to log into http://www.mycitrix.com and allocate and download your license file (see http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX126167 for step-by-step instructions). When you do this, you must enter the name of the machine that hosts the AppDNA license server. Click Copy to copy this to the clipboard for pasting into http://www.mycitrix.com.

20

Configure a Complete Installation

License server machine name This shows the name of the AppDNA license server machine. This is the same machine as the AppDNA server. Location of license file After you have downloaded your license file, enter its name and location here. This must be a license issued from http://www.mycitrix.com and not an old AppDNA license (.clf) file. If necessary, you can log into http://www.mycitrix.com and download new Citrix licenses that match your existing entitlements.

Note: AppDNA handles licensing differently from other Citrix products so if you have purchased multiple Citrix products, Citrix recommends that you download your AppDNA license(s) separately from the licenses for the other products. Run in evaluation mode Select this option if you want to run AppDNA in trial mode for up to 30 days. This allows the import of 10 applications and the analysis of five applications against all of the available reports while you evaluate the product. 9. Click Next to move to the next step.

10. This page checks your system. Click Need Help? in the lower left corner for more information about the checks and what to do if they fail. 11. Click Next to start the configuration of AppDNA and the creation of the database. This takes some time. Note: If you chose the Production Web server option, this also performs an IIS reset. This will make any other Web sites hosted by IIS on this server unavailable for a brief interval.

21

Configure a Complete Installation

12. When the process has finished, the wizard provides a summary page.

13. Click Close to exit the wizard. You are now ready to get started using AppDNA. See Logging into AppDNA for the First Time for more information.

22

Configure a Client Installation

The Client installation installs the AppDNA client. This is an installation of the AppDNA application, which connects to an AppDNA Web site and database that are located on another machine (sometimes the database is on a different machine from the AppDNA Web site). At the end of the installation, the AppDNA Configuration wizard walks through the steps to configure the client to connect to the AppDNA Web site and database. This section provides step-by-step instructions for using the AppDNA Configuration wizard to configure an AppDNA client installation. The wizard opens by default when you finish the installation step. (To open the wizard later, choose Citrix AppDNA > Management Tools > Configure AppDNA Client from the Windows Start menu.)

1. Enter the URL of the AppDNA Web site for example, http://server:8199/AppDNA, where server is the name of the AppDNA server machine, 8199 is the port number, and AppDNA is the name of the AppDNA Web site. 2. Click Next to move to the system text page. This page checks your system. Click Need Help? in the lower left corner for more information about the checks and what to do if they fail. 3. Click Close to exit the wizard.

23

Configure a Client Installation

You are now ready to get started using AppDNA. See Logging into AppDNA for the First Time for more information. Note: The wizard creates a site for each AppDNA database that is connected to the AppDNA Web site. You use the site when you login to AppDNA to specify which database you want to connect to.

24

Upgrading AppDNA

Check list
Should I uninstall my old version before upgrading? No, do not uninstall the previous version before installing and configuring AppDNA 6.1. The installer will then automatically delete any unnecessary old files whilst preserving your settings and configuration options. How long will the upgrade take? Upgrading a database to AppDNA 6.1 from AppTitude 5.1 and earlier can take a long time, particularly if you have a large application portfolio. On an AppDNA recommended system the upgrade time is expected to be approximately one hour per 500 applications if all modules are enabled. Upgrading from AppDNA 6.0 is not expected to take as long. Disk space In AppDNA 6.0 and later, the results of the analysis of the application DNA are stored in the database in a format optimized for report generation. This means that generating reports is now significantly faster than in AppTitude 5.1 and earlier. However, it also means that the size of your database will increase by approximately 15% when you upgrade from AppTitude 5.1 or earlier. You therefore need to ensure that you have sufficient disk space available before you upgrade. Default OS images are now installed into the database for all relevant versions of Windows. This requires significant additional disk space (2 3GB) if you previously chose to install only a subset of them. Web site name The upgrade process renames the AppTitude Web site to AppDNA, preserving the configuration files and moving them to the new location. Licensing The licensing system in AppDNA 6.1 has changed to integrate with the Citrix licensing system. All new AppDNA licenses are now issued through http://www.mycitrix.com. However, if you are upgrading from previous versions of AppDNA, your old licenses will be upgraded automatically to the new licensing scheme. Note: If your AppDNA license server is located on a separate machine from the AppDNA Web server, you need to upgrade it before you upgrade the AppDNA database. To do this, download Citrix AppDNA License Server.msi and run it on the machine that hosts the AppDNA license server.

25

Upgrading AppDNA

Changed requirements
Supported operating systems Although Windows XP and Windows Vista are supported as platforms for the AppDNA client, they are no longer supported as platforms for the AppDNA server. Microsoft .NET Framework The AppDNA 6.1 server requires Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5 SP1 and AppDNA 6.1 client machines require Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5. This is unchanged from AppDNA 6.0. SQL Server SQL Server 2005 Express is no longer supported. See AppDNA Platform Requirements for the full list of requirements.

Appendix

Additional configuration for Windows Server 2003


If you are using an IIS-based AppDNA Web server on a Windows Server 2003 platform and you are using Windows authentication, the user you enter in the AppDNA Web Site Credentials step (step 6) must be part of the IIS_WPG group. The Configure AppDNA Environment wizard attempts to set this up for you. However, sometimes this may not be successful. You will then find that you cannot log into AppDNA. To resolve this issue, add the user to the group manually as explained below.

Add the user to the IIS_WPG group


1. Open the Windows Control Panel. 2. In the Administrative Tools group, open Computer Management. 3. In the tree view on the left side, expand Local Users and Groups. 4. In the tree view on the left side, click Groups. This lists the groups in the middle panel. 5. Right-click the IIS_WPG group, and from the shortcut menu, choose Add to group. 6. Click Add in the lower part of the dialog box. 7. In the Enter the object names to select box, enter the domain qualified user name. 8. Click Check Names to confirm that you entered the user name correctly. 9. Click OK twice to save your changes and close the dialog boxes. You now need to restart the AppDNAAppPool in IIS Manager otherwise attempting to log into AppDNA will fail.

Restart the AppDNAAppPool in IIS Manager


1. In the Windows Start > Run box, enter inetmgr. 2. In the list of results, click inetmgr. This opens IIS Manager. 3. Expand the tree view on the left side, and click Application Pools.
