I want to show you how to install Citrix Netscaler VPX on Hyper-V step by step.
Step 1: Create a VM on Hyper-V with synthetic network card and 2 vCPU.
Step 2: Download VHD type of Netscaler image from Citrix, mount it to VM and start.
Step 3: Enter ip address for your Netscaler.
Step 4: Enter netmask.
Step 5: Enter default gateway.
Step 6: Type “4” to save your inputs.
Step 7: Netscaler should start initializing.
Step 8: If you see “Done” message, you can go to web interface.
Step 9: You can login with following credentials:
Step 10: You will see Setup Wizard after your login.
Step 11: Choose your region.
Step 12: Select your license file. You should get it from Citrix.
Step 13: You need to reboot Netscaler to save changes.
Step 14: Don’t forget to set MAC address as static. If it changes, you need to regenerate license file.
Netscaler uses FreeBSD but it comes with its own Hyper-V integration service. That’s why you can use synthetic network adapter and shutdown from Hyper-V. I hope we will see FreeBSD integration services soon.
