Virtual Delivery Agent (VDA) standalone package

Release Date: Dec 18, 2014

This type of package provides administrators with an alternative method for deploying the XenDesktop/XenApp 7.6 VDA by way of Electronic Software Delivery (ESD) models.

This smaller package can more easily accommodate deployments using ESD packages that are staged or copied locally, have physical machines, or have remote offices.

The standalone VDA package is intended primarily for deployments that use command-line (silent) installation - it supports the same command line parameters as the XenDesktopVdaSetup.exe command (which is used by the full-product installer), plus an “extract” parameter that is unique to the standalone package. The package also offers a graphical interface that is very similar to the VDA installer on the full-product ISO.

There are two self-extracting standalone VDA packages: one for installation on supported server OS machines, and another for supported workstation (desktop) OS machines.

Before deploying the VDA, please review the latest instructions in eDocs for planning and configuration. This approach supersedes CTX article 140973 “How to Downsize XenDesktop 7.x VDA Installation Package” for 7.6 deployments only.
