I have just set up the configuration logging database in XenApp 4.5, I checked the Event Logs it seems everything worked okay, but how do I view it, is there a tool in Citrix I can view the changes logged or do I have to do it on the SQL server?

It is not exactly very intuitive.  You do not use SQL to view the changes.  There is a link in the Report Center in the Access Mgmt Console that shows you the report that shows you a link that you click on that shows you the changes!!!

I found this in the cashed copy of a web site that appear to exist any more:

To generate a report against the Configuration Logging database:

Open the  Access Management Console, then click on the Report Center node on the left.

Click on Generate Report in the Common Tasks section.

Select Configuration Logging Report for the Report Type.

Create a new specification if necessary or use an existing specification.
To create a new specification, select Create and use a new specification. Click Next.
Enter a Name for the connection. (Example: Configuration Log) and click Create.
Select Microsoft OE DB Provider for SQL Server (SQL Server was used in the previous example) and click Next.
Enter the server name for the database server.
Select the authentication method (Note: If using Windows NT Integrated, you may need to log off and then back on as a user with rights to view the database).
Select the database and then click Test Connection.
If everything returns with Successful test, then click OK.
Then click Next.

Select the Farm name

Now define what you want to look for and click Next.
You can modify the date, the type of items to look for, the name of an item or a specific username depending on what data you are looking for in the configuration log.
