Server Restore Issue

Posted on 2006-04-19

I just restored my complete W2k3 server from tape after first installing the OS.  I performed a complete restore from tape which now I have an issue.  This is a Citrix box and upon boot before it gets to the logon dialog box I get an error stating the following:

Logon User Interface DLL ctxgina.dll failed to load.

From googling the error it takes me to Citrix that has a doc that should fix the issue.  Basically I took the ctxgina.dll from my other Citrix server and copied it to the failing server (per Citrix fix).   No luck.  Anyone have a suggestion as to how to correct this issue?

Server was rebuilt as restored due to multiple hard drive failures.

    did you register the DLL file after copying it.
    use regsvr32.

    Just tried to register it and it failed with the error of "The specified module cannot be found."  I confirmed the path, but still no luck registering.

    i would have to think you are missing other dll thta the ctxgina.dll requires when registering, try re-installing citrix? probably a pain, but the settings should be stored on the other server. I have never used citrix, but this is how I would try it.

    I got it.  It was a strange issue that was a product from the restore.  My second partition D drive was not online.  I activated the drive and all is well now.  Freaking waste of time.   But it's running.  Thanks
