Configuring Citrix Receiver email account based discovery is a simple step that allows users to input their email address into Citrix Receiver to gain access to your environment. The benefits of configuring email based account discovery is of course that the users are all happy with the concept of email addresses rather than having to enter a server address into Citrix Receiver which depending on the user entering it can have variable results! 🙂
In order to configure this, you must have pre-configured your NetScaler (if you have one) for native receiver access (if you have not done so already see HERE for hints on the configuration). Then all you need to do is add one SRV record into your DNS infrastructure and your done. Well I say done, if you have a multiple domains on your network then you will need to configure an SRV record per domain.
Logon to your domain controller and open up the DNS console.
Right click your domain tree and choose Other New Record.
Scroll down and Select SRV.
Enter the information as pictured below substituting the host offering the service for the URL of your NetScaler Access Gateway.
Click OK and your done.
