Citrix PS 4.0, Windows 2003 Server Standard, SQL 2000 on seperate Windows 2003
I took over a network with a server farm with 3 servers.
this is a copy of the mf20.dsn file on the 3 servers. The WSID= parameter points to the correct server name on each of the servers mf20.dsn file.

APP=Citrix IMA

HKLM\Software\Citrix\IMA\datasource key also points to this dsn
HKLM\Software\Citrix\IMA\databasedriver is ImaSQL.dll

When I installed a new server Citrix server and point it to the the SQL server it joins another farm that no longer exists. If I point the new server to one of the existing servers instead of the SQL database it finds the current farm.
When I point to the SQL server I have to use FS1 for the server name not FS1\CITRIX_METAFRAME as referenced in the mf20.dsn file.
All 3 of the existing servers were cloned at one time.
Have run chfarm with the same results.
Any Ideas on where the current farm info is comming from?
