Configuring the Merchandising Server

In the previous chapter, we've seen why and how to configure the Citrix Receiver plugin; this is a fundamental component to view and use the applications and the desktops assigned to a user. It requires an installation on any device that needs access to the online or offline resources; this could need an ulterior effort in the maintenance tasks such as upgrading activities. How could you avoid this problem? By the use of the Merchandising Server, a centralized store for any receiver version (for example, Linux or Windows OS, iOS, and/or Android devices), you can download the latest version of the client, to be able to have a single and centralized point of maintenance.
