Deploy Citrix ADC to Azure using ARM Templates and Ansible

I’ve created an Ansible playbook to deploy Citrix ADC (previously Citrix NetScaler) to Azure using ARM Templates. You can find the playbook here in Azure DevOps, see the readme for the latest information about the playbook, how to use it and the per-requisites.

The main points for creating a new one instead of using the Citrix provided ones are (or at least were):

  • Deploy HA using Availability Zone
  • Using HA Ports for internal LB
  • Generates the external LB rules based on the number of Public IPs and Ports automatically
  • Naming convention that matches all other resources

Feel free to try it out and get back to me if you have any questions!
