Citrix Hypervisor 8.2 LTSR What’s New

In this post, I want to share with you some Citrix Hypervisor 8.2 LTSR what’s new. The feature I liked very much is the possibility to easily replace the Citrix Hypervisor host TLS certificates.

New features and improvements in Citrix Hypervisor 8.2

Increased configuration limits

  • The maximum host RAM is now 6 TB
