Supported Databases for Virtual Apps and Desktops (XenApp and XenDesktop) AND Provisioning (Provisioning Services)

Citrix is committed to ensuring that our products function with the latest Microsoft SQL databases. Citrix supplies reasonable efforts to ensure compatibility with upcoming database releases. New versions of supported databases released after our products have been released, must work. However, Citrix recommends creating a test environment to ensure there are no unforeseen issues related to changes made to the new version or update of the third-party product. Individuals wishing to use the new release with current Citrix products must perform their own testing before using the platform. Citrix does not support any BETA versions of third-party products.

Note:

  • This document will be updated periodically as new information becomes available.
  • The Cumulative Updates for SQL versions are not called out explicitly. They are an extension of the product and supported.
