Citrix XenApp on Windows Server 2008 - Consider changing your password balloon message
Posted on 2009-04-07
We are using the Citrix Xenapp Web Interface to publish applications on Server 2008. The clients are XP machines and most of them are not on the domain. Most users log in to a generic local machine account on the client and then authenticate to the Citrix farm using their domain credentials.
Users whose domain password is about to expire are getting the following balloon message in the notification area of the local taskbar:
"Consider Changing your password
Your password will expire soon.
To Change your password, pres CTRL+ALT+DELETE and
then click Change a password"
This notification is referring to the domain account that they logged into the Citrix WI with, however since it's on their local systray it does not appear to be associated with the server. We are not publishing full desktops so if they hit CTRL-ALT-DELETE they will be changing the password on the local computer. This is going to be very confusing for our users.
Can this message be suppressed using group policy or other?
