Hi guys!

Would love your help.

We have a Windows 2003 AD Domain with 10 Citrix Servers running PS 4.
We have just added another Citrix Server PS 4 and are having huge problems:

1) Installing it takes for ages
2) Rebooting the server fails on trying to start the IMA Service.

We have looked in the following registry key to see what it is pausing on on load.

The key we are looking at is the following:

HKLM\SOFTWARE\CITRIX\IMA\RUNTIME

The entry in here is the following:

CurrentlyLoadingPlugin:    MfSrvSs.dll

We have uninstalled and reinstalled PS 4 on numerous times and still the same thing.

We have not upgraded this machine from earlier versions of Citrix. Just installed PS 4.

I cant really find anything on the net that is definitive in a fix for this.

We have tried the rollup patches and they dont work.

Any help here would be greatly appreciated.

Simon

Make sure your Citrix servers are in their own OU and that you are blocking upstream policy (Inheritance).  I have had issues where one service sets rights in a domain policy and overwrites local rights your CTX_SmaUser needs.  If you look in your Local Security Policy under User Rights Assignment, you shouldn't see the computer icon (meaning the setting comes from a higher level policy); they should all be the little blue 1s and 0s.  
The obvious thing to check is the event viewer, when you try to manually start your service, what is logged?
