Hi,

Here are a couple of blogs/webpages that I keep to hand for Citrix on VMware ESX.

Virtrix

TheEther

But as a general rule of thumb try and avoid P2V'ing, fresh installs tend to be easier to manage and perform better. Look at a scale out model opposed to a scale up model, so more smaller VM's rather than a couple of large ones.

Also follow general Citrix tuning, physical or virtual these are proven ways to ensure that Terminal Servers/Citrix servers run as well as possible. For example the following KB from Citrix is for AntiVirus CTX114522
