Having trouble registering your Azure hosted XenDesktop VDA with your on-prem XD controller?

Recently was testing Azure with our on-prem solution as part of a proof of concept we were doing and noticed the VDA’s were appearing “unregistered” in Citrix Studio.

Turns out there is an additional CTX article to review –


Review the registry keys under the multiple forests with 2 way or 1 trusts. In particular the keys below:

  • For a 32-bit VDA: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Citrix\VirtualDesktopAgent\SupportMultipleForest (REG_DWORD)
  • For a 64-bit VDA: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Wow6432Node\Citrix\VirtualDesktopAgent\SupportMultipleForest (REG_DWORD)
