Citrix 1.8 needs to see active directory

Currently we have Citrix 1.8 running on a 2k server, but the domain was NT 4.0.  I just finished adding a 2k3 server, so the domain is now in mixed mode.  Although in mixed mode and the new 2k3 domain controller is emulating a PDC, the "User Manager for Domains" on citrix server can't connect...it thinks the domain is 2k+.  The citrix server does not have active directory users & computers installed, so as far as I know, there is no way to administer user access to the citrix server.

Does anyone know how to get us up & running?  We're thinking of installing AD users & computers on the citrix server, but don't want to break anything.

Any suggestions or experiences would be appreciated.

Citrix retired MetaFrame 1.8 in 2005, so you should seriously consider upgrading to a supported version.

You should be able to install AD on the W2K Citrix server. We had a similar transition environment a few years ago and things worked fine, but we probably went through the steps in a different order than you (our NT domain controller died so we pushed a test W2K PDC into production, so there was no NT in the environment).

We were actually able to grant/deny login access to the citrix server thorugh a combination of terminal dial in and terminal services profile in each accounts AD properties...no AD necessary on the server.  Give access to both, they can log in, take both away they get locked out.  Very easy.
