5 Citrix Metaframe servers in an application farm blue screening (BSOD)
Posted on 2009-02-24
We have 5 Windows 2000 servers running a Citrix Metaframe Presentation 4.0 farm. The servers are load balancing one application to all users. These servers are all heavily locked down with group policy, so that users cannot install software or printer drivers (except the drivers in the compatibility list), or even save files locally.
The servers all started randomly blue screening 2 weeks ago and I cannot narrow down the problem as the server crashes are not saving kernel dumps to the local disks (they are set to do so). The servers are also set to shutdown on blue screening, but they are restarting automatically.
I've read up posts on this site about removing "version 2 and 3" drivers, but I'm not 100% on the complexity of what this actually means...
