Senior Citrix Architect Interview

Senior Citrix Architect
Plano, TX

I applied through a recruiter and the process took 2+ weeks - interviewed at Dell in February 2010.

Interview Details – Contacted on LinkedIn 1st by Dell HR using Inmail. Had phone interview with several people from legacy Perot consulting that specialized in Citrix. Next Day was made offer, extremely quick. Never had it go that fast. Longest part was paperwork, waiting for drug screen (hair), credit check, background check, etc. This took 10 days, offer letter in 12 days, started following Monday.

Interview Question – Basically core questions, Customer logs in to WI, clicks on icon, no error no launch, what could it be? Explain concept of zone, and data collector, what is a data collector, how many should I have, what are the settings for the role, how is Citrix XenApp licensed now, what type of licenses are required (user CALS and RDS CALS), what port does license server listen on, what is the xml serivice, what is the default port on install, what user roles are available in XenDesktop, what rs Desktop Director, what role in XD is required for HD, what is session load balancing, what RAID level is recommened for XenDesktop 5.5 and why?   Answer Question

Negotiation Details – It was timing. They needed someone external that knew well enough to implement a large multi-tenant environment, first customer was 58000 VM's in 3 years goal. They tried View but had too many requests for Citrix. They hired an outsider because it was all ESX internal and View until I arrived.
