About the Pre-deployment Checklist

Citrix Smart Tools provides a pre-deployment checklist for each supported resource location. The Pre-deployment Checklist page appears automatically during blueprint deployment and displays recommended machine prerequisites and deployment parameters for the selected resource location. You can also preview the pre-deployment checklist from the Blueprint Designer.

Before you deploy a blueprint on a resource location, review the checklist and ensure that all the configurations are set as mentioned in the checklist.

To preview the Pre-deployment Checklist from the Blueprint Designer

  1. From the menu bar, click Smart Build.
  2. Move the pointer over the blueprint for which you want to preview the checklist and select Actions > View.
  3. Under the Overview tab, click the Preview pre-deployment checklist link.

The Pre-deployment Checklist page appears. If your blueprint contains atleast one Server step, the pre-deployment checklist page displays the following sections:

    • Resource Location
    • Template Requirements for Windows VMs
    • Gather all parameters needed for deployment configuration

If there is no Server step in your blueprint, the pre-deployment checklist page displays only the Gather all parameters needed for deployment configuration section.
