Transfer the file to the VDI machine.  In this instance, we have used WinSCP, created directory /tmp/vda and placed the rpm file there.  Navigate to the folder and execute the following command:

sudo rpm -i citrix-linuxvda-rhel7-1.4.0.rpm

Once this is installed, the it needs to be configured running the following command:

sudo /opt/Citrix/VDA/sbin/

You can automate the process and the Citrix article provides the values to populate the values as parameters, but here since this is a single machine, we will utilize the command prompts and basically select the default values except when defining the Delivery Controllers.
