Citrix session shadow

Situation three PS4 servers on w2k3 from one I can shadow sessions, from the other two I cant, on doing so a message pops up connection to farm <farm name> has been dropped.
When you click the ok button it drops the presentation server console drops and it seems the ima service stops though it eventually restarts.

I didnt install so wonder if shadowing was not set up at install  ( is there any way to check this)

I do not have Internet access at the momemnt but I wrote an article that shows you how to find out if shadowing is installed.  http://www.dabcc.com/Webster and look for the article "How to tell if shadowing is enabled".

Unfortunately I dont seem to have that option when I open up ica client, ICA settings end at client printer option.

It is the same on the one that works and the one that doesnt.

This is a PS4  server anybody got an idea where to find confirmation in PS4 , please.

Im not sure as to why you dont have those settings. Try this method.

1. Go to Citrix Connection Configuration on each server (to enable cross-server shadowing) in the farm.

2. Highlight the connection type you are working with (ICA-tcp).

3. Click security > permissions.

4. Add a user or group.

5. Highlight the user or group you added in the previous step.

6. Click advanced.

7. Double-click the user or group/ or click view > edit.

8. Add the permission to shadow (Remote Controll).

9. Select one of the methods below that you want the users to shadow with:

Folks for no reason in particular we can now shadow all servers without issue , only thing that has changed is windows updates and the ubiqtous restart.

Thanks for your help point split between you......
