In this post i’m going to demonstrate how to install Citrix ADC on Nutanix AHV. Nutanix AHV has been certified by Citrix to run the Citrix ADC Appliance.
I really got benefit from an article written by René Bigler to build it up.
Step 1: Download the Citrix ADC appliance for KVM from: https://www.citrix.com/downloads/citrix-adc/
Step 2: Let’s need to extract the disk image from this file.
Step 3: Log in to Prism -> click Settings -> Click Image Configuration -> In the Image Configuration -> Click on Upload Image.
Step 4: Enter a Name.
In Image Type select disk.
Select the container where you want to sit your Citrix ADC.
Click Save to upload.
Step 5: Let’s go to the VM page and Click Create VM.
Step 5: Click Add New Disk
Step 6: Click Add New NIC.
Step 7: Click Save to create the VM.
Note: Nutanix does not automatically add serial ports. If you boot the Citrix ADC VM and it stops at the message “Loading /boot/defaults/loader.conf”, add the serial port to the VM using the steps below:
We have to connect to the Nutanix CVM and execute the following command, replace with the name of the VM
acli vm.serial_port_create type=kServer index=0
Step 8: Power on the VM.
Step 9: Log in to the NetScaler CLI with the nsroot / nsroot. Now let’s go initial IP configuration by entering config ns.
> config ns
> save ns config
Step 10: Now can we browse to the NetScaler IP and log into the management interface to set up and configure all the shiny NetScaler features.
