NOTE: The Parallels Citrix XenApp 6.x migration tool is a standalone software executed on a separate management workstation. It won’t modify any settings on your existing Citrix Virtual Apps (formerly Citrix XenApp) Farm.

The configuration settings are extracted from the Citrix Farm using Citrix PowerShell SDK. The Parallels RAS migration tool then imports the settings into a new Parallels RAS Farm.  The administrators can then verify the new configurations and start migrating the Microsoft RDS servers from Citrix Virtual Apps (formerly Citrix XenApp) to Parallels RAS.
