How to obtain Apple Distribution Account

Apple Distribution account is required to wrapping iOS applications for XenMobile. To obtain access to the app wrapping prerequisites for iOS, you must register for an Apple distribution account. There are two types: Enterprise and Developer. Citrix strongly recommends Enterprise accounts.

  • For Enterprise accounts: You can deploy and test apps, without an App ID, on an unlimited number of devices. Distribute your Developer Certificate to your developers so they can sign apps.
  • For Developer accounts: Testing is limited to 100 devices. You must specify an App ID when deploying apps.

I will show steps how to obtain Developer account for my personal and lab use, however obtaining Enterprise account for the e.g. your Company, practice is the same.

1. Head to the URL https://developer.apple.com/programs/start/standard/ and press Continue.

2. Apple ID is required to continue.

3. I would suggest to use your own personal Apple ID only for the Apple Developer account for personal use and create a new Apple ID for Apple Enterprise account.

4. Choose to enroll as an Individual or Company.

5. Fill your contact information and Continue.

6. Review your details and Continue.

7. Select your program. Both iOS and Mac Developer Programs are fine for application wrapping, I’m going to register in iOS Program.

8. Read carefully what you need to agree and press I Agree. 🙂

9. And you’re finally ready to Buy Now.

10. And you’re done! Log in to the Member Center https://developer.apple.com/membercenter/

11. You’re purchase might not show in Member Center right away, so you might need to give an another 15-30 minutes to Apple update your purchase.

12. After Apple has updated your membership, now you are able to create Certificates and Profiles needed to wrap iOS applications. I will go it thru on my next blog post!

XenMobile 10 – Configuration Series Part 4: Cluster Configuration

Long story short – how to create XenMobile 10 Cluster fast!

Documentation for XenMobile 10 clustering hasn’t been released yet (12/3/2015), so here is the steps to add second node quickly into XenMobile Cluster configuration. In XenMobile 10, clustering the XenMobile virtual appliances has been really simplified.

After you have configured your first XenMobile servers, you need to enable Clustering if you didn’t on First Time Use Mode configuration phase.

1. Log in to your XenMobile server console and enable Clustering:

In Main Menu choose [1] Clustering -> [2] Enable/Disable cluster -> press y and enter to enable clustering and reboot virtual appliance.

2. Log in back to the console and open firewall port 80:

In Main Menu choose [0] Configuration-> [2] Firewall -> press y when asked HTTP Service Enable Access. Press enter to all the other settings to accept default choices.

3. Shut down your XenMobile server to make a clone of it.

4. Depending what virtualisation vendor/product you’re using, choose to create full clone of your XenMobile Server. When the clone process is completed, start the new cloned virtual appliance.  Make sure to leave the initial virtual appliance powered off.

5. Go to the Network settings and change IP address and reboot virtual appliance.

6. Power up another XenMobile server as well and wait until both are up.

7. Check the cluster status.

8. Check the Hazelcast cluster status. (yes, console has a typing error 🙂 If other node is not visible on the Hazelcast cluster status, reboot the node and check back again.

9. Log in the XenMobile Web Console, the IP address can be either of the cluster members.

10. Click the wrench icon next to the username to get Support site open.

 

11. Click Cluster Information and check Cluster Members and Hazelcast Cluster Information and you’re done!
