List XenApp 6.5 hotfixes with PowerShell

This is a classic but needs to be written somewhere so I can find it again when I need it !

First thing, you need to add the XenApp Powershell snapin :

Add-PSSnapin Citrix*

Then you can use few very useful command to gather information and script your deployment / inventory.

PS H:\> get-help xenapp

The result format is not very useful and is about only 1 server in a farm of 100… And I was looking for all the servers which had the XA650R01W2K8R2X64061 hotfix installed

I needed to have a list of all servers, only the machine name where this hotfix was installed.

Get-XAServer  | Get-XAServerHotfix | Where-Object {$_.HotfixName -like '*XA650R01W2K8R2X64061*'} |  Select-Object ServerName

And the result look like this :
