Citrix Director – How to Make Director the Default Page within IIS
On a recent project, I needed to create two Citrix Director servers. One for Citrix XenApp 6.5 and the other for XenApp 7.6. I looked for an article from Citrix on how to make the Director site the default page in IIS and did not find anything. So I have ripped off, I mean borrowed heavily from, the Citrix article How to Make StoreFront the Default Page within IIS to do what I needed done.
Complete the following steps to make a Director Web Site the default page within the IIS site:
On the Director server, copy the following text in a Notepad:
Select File > Save As, change Save as type to All Files, Type a file name with an html extension, and select Save. I used DirectorHomePage.html.
Copy the file…
and paste to c:\inetpub\wwwroot.
Click Continue to provide Administrator permission.
Open IIS Manager.
Select the SERVERNAME node (top-level) and double-click Default Document.
Click Add… in the Actions pane,
and type the file name of the .html file used earlier.
Ensure the .html file is located at the top of the list.
Open an elevated command prompt and run IISRESET.
Now you can open a browser, go to http(s)://DirectorServerName and the Director page will automatically open.
