EXAM PREPARATION GUIDE | Citrix XenApp 6.5 Administration

The Exam
This guide provides a list of objectives and resources that will help candidates prepare for items on the 1Y0-A20 Citrix XenApp 6.5 Administration exam. Candidates should read this guide carefully before attempting this exam. The A20 exam was written to certify that candidates at least had the minimum knowledge required by employers to perform the job of an administrator. By passing this exam, candidates can show they have at least the basic knowledge needed for installation, administration, support, and troubleshooting of enterprise environments of Citrix XenApp 6.5 running on Windows Server 2008 R2. However, to perform the job effectively, candidates should also ensure that they have sufficient hands-on experience. This exam does not test knowledge needed to perform server maintenance, advanced configurations, or advanced troubleshooting. It also does not test on features included in Citrix XenApp Platinum edition. _____________________________________________________________

1.1 Purpose of the Preparation Guide and Exam

1.2 Beta Testing Citrix Education regularly beta tests the content of all high stakes an Exam certification exams. Once the questions are developed for an exam, Citrix

Education releases them in a beta exam for FREE. Beta exams count toward Citrix Certification but candidates are only allowed to take them once. The Citrix XenApp 6.5 Administration (A20) exam was beta-tested from September 9-October 7, 2011. A total of 120 candidates (38% from the Americas, 57% from EMEA, and 5% from APAC) took it and also completed a survey to determine how much experience they had with XenApp 6.5. A professional then analyzed the exam and survey results to determine which questions should be kept in the final versions of the exam. This analysis provided the basis for a recommended passing score and time limits for the exam. Once the passing score was determined, beta candidates who obtained that score or higher, received a passing result on the exam. If you are interested in participating in future beta exams, please visit the Citrix Education SME Hub to create a profile and indicate that you are interested in taking beta exams.

1.3 Number of Questions

The Intended Audience

2.1 Intended Audience

The A20 exam is focused on those topics that were most important to those who perform the role of a Citrix administrator. Citrix Education selected these topics based on feedback from subject matter experts (SMEs) who perform this role in the field. Those who serve as administrators may hold various job titles such as: Systems Administrator Sales/System Engineer (SE) Technical Support Staff Systems Integrator Citrix Certified Instructor (CCI) Infrastructure Architect Citrix Consultant

2.2 Defining the Role being Tested

Field experts discussed the duties of the administrator role during a job task analysis workshop (JTA). Depending on the job title, individuals in this role could have different responsibilities. The experts who participated in the JTA, arrived at a consensus on which tasks were the most important for administrators and selected those as objectives for this test.

Preparatory Recommendations for the Exam


Citrix Education recommends that prior to taking this exam candidates have the knowledge, skills and abilities required to install, administer and support an enterprise environment that contains a server farm running Citrix XenApp 6.5 on Windows Server 2008 R2.

3.1 Introduction

3.2 Recommended Knowledge and Skills

Specifically, candidates should have the following knowledge and skills prior to taking this exam: Experience with Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 including but not limited to: Configuring operating system options Understanding Terminal Services policies and profiles Using Active Directory Creating users/managing permissions and administrator rights Creating and modifying Active Directory group policies Understanding the various roles of a Windows server Experience with and knowledge of system administration skills, including but not limited to: Understanding of: How data is transferred across a network Firewall concepts Email administration and account creation Creating shares and giving access to shared folders/files Understanding basic database terminology and requirements

3.3 Recommended Product Experience

We recommend that candidates have about six months of experience with the following tasks in a XenApp 6.5 environment: Installing and managing a XenApp Configuring XenApp sessions Configuring XenApp policies Publishing applications and content Monitoring and managing performance and load Configuring printing Enabling and securing web access to published applications and content Troubleshooting

EXAM PREPARATION GUIDE | Citrix XenApp 6.5 Administration

3.4 Recommended Course

Citrix Education recommends that candidates have hands-on experience with XenApp 6.5 prior to taking this exam. One of the best ways to do this is by taking formal Citrix training courses. The following courses provide basic training on administrative tasks. CXA 206-1: Citrix XenApp 6.5: Administration ( instructor-led training course or self-study) CXA-102-1W Citrix XenApp 6.5 Overview (self-paced online training course)

As with all Citrix exams, it is recommended that candidates get hands-on experience by working directly with the products covered on the exam. This includes setting up a XenApp 6.5 environment with at least one farm, multiple published applications, at least one Web Interface site, and using Access Gateway for some access scenarios. While this hands-on experience can be done on the job, Citrix Education official courses offer a safe and robust environment to learn these tasks. Thus they are one of the best ways to prepare for the exam.

Exam Sections and Weights


The 1Y0-A20 exam is divided into ten (10) sections. Each section of the exam is weighted as follows, totaling 100%.

4.1 Introduction

4.2 Section Titles and Weights

Section Understanding the Citrix Architecture Licensing and Installing XenApp Configuring XenApp Sessions Configuring XenApp Policies Publishing Applications and Content Using Commands, Reports, Profiles, and Delegation Monitoring and Managing Performance and Load Configuring Printing Enabling and Securing Web Access to Published Applications and Content Troubleshooting Total

Weight 10% 5% 12% 10% 12% 7% 10% 9% 12% 13% 100%

4.3 How Section Weights Relate to Questions on the Exam

The section weights included in this guide are intended to help you in understanding how much of the exam is devoted to the topics listed. In fact, the percentages directly map to the number of questions on the exam. For example, if an exam has 60 questions, and Section 1 is weighted at 50%, then 30 of the questions on the exam will relate to Section 1 (60*50% = 30). Please be warned that section weights are NOT used to calculate your score. Scoring is far more complicated as exam questions may be given different weights based on their overall importance. Because some questions may have different point values assigned to them, section weights and exam scores do not always have a one to one correlation. For more information on how scoring works in Citrix exams read the blog The Scoring Secrets for Citrix Exams - Divulged.
