Hi,

I have XenApp6.5 farm with Web interface 5.4 configured, I have six Web Interface servers with Multiple WI sites configured. In previous WI versions there was an option for “*Central*” store configuration where we can manage multiple WI servers with Multiple WI sites configured using access suite console. However now it seems in WI5.4 this option has been taken out only "*local*" configuration is available.

Is there any way I can configure to manage multiple Web interface servers with multiple websites?

regards
Sreekanth.CB

Why? You can have multiple web sites with one Web Interface Server with different configuration, look and feel reacting on different FQDN etc.

You no longer have the option of a central store configuration. However, you can easily copy over the configuration from one site to another by simply copying over the Webinterface.conf file from the /conf directory to the new site. Two caveats:
- you must create the new site first with the WI Access Management Console, and
- any changes to source code (whether HTML, ASP.NET, Java, etc) must be manually copied over as well.

Thanks Sam & thomas,

I am ware This information, and its useful when I am creating multiple WI sites.

My question is If I have multiple WI servers with multiple WI sites configured in each servers.

Now I want to manage all these WI servers and their sites in Single server without logging into individual servers.

In older versions I was able to manage by configuring Central store option using Access Suite console. But its seems this option is no more exists now.

is there anyway I can still manage this?

Appreciate if you comment.

No and the whole central configuration was buggy anyway.

You don't have to log on to each server ... just map to the /conf directory and copy the Webinterface.conf file.
