How can I rename "My Computer" on Citrix Desktops with Computer Name?
Posted on 2008-06-25
We have multiple Citrix servers in our farm, so when users call our helpdesk we would like them to be able to tell the name of the server they are using just by looking at the "My Computer" icon on the desktop. The Default Profile for new users has "show My Computer on Desktop", and all users have roaming profiles. Conceptually, I would like to rename the "My Computer" icon such that whenever a user launches a Published Desktop session on a server, they see the name of the server they are using. I have tried renaming the icon while logged in under an Admin account, but it seems to get saved as part of the Admin's roaming profile, such that whatever computer they log onto shows the computer name I typed, not the actual one they are using. This method also only seems to affect that one account, rather than all user accounts. I want this to be globally renamed for all users. Seems like ideally I could use a %computername% type variable as the name for "My Computer" but I am not sure how to do this.
