citrix presentation server mapped drive

Hi Guys,

I have a client who accesses citrix through "http://citrix.dynaserv.com."

I've attached an image for reference.

As you can see in the image, they have an O drive, U drive, etc.

I just recently added the M:\ drive by going to Applications and creating it. But How do I Determine what's it opening to? As in, the O:\ drive opens to \\servername\data. I want the M drive to open to \\servername\mdrive

How do I accomplish this in Citrix? I've looked all over the Presentation Server Console, etc.

Any help would be great!

I use Active Directory GPOs to map network drives - including drives for Citrix users.  If I need a user to have direct access to the "reports" drive for example, I can create the application as you have and share it to the users.  If I need to see where it points, I go into the Presentation Server Console, right click on the application and hit properties, then click the Application Location option on the left.  The location is under the "Content Address" field.  

If I need to know where the drive mapping actually points, I would check under the group policy object or you can run a "Net Use" from the command prompt to see what drive assignments there are.

On the Citrix server do a NET USE.  That should list all the connections on the server.  That should give you something like:

M:  \\Server\ShareName

Hi Guys,

I've attached another image. Unfortunately under "Application Location" I do not see a place to modify the path to which the Application is opening to.

I ran a net use, I can see which mapped drives I have under "My Computer," but this doesn't help me solve where these Applications are actually pointing to, ie \\servername\datalocation.

OK, it looks like whoever installed this server remapped the server's local drives.  When this happens the server's C drive becomes M, D becomes N, and so on.

Carl WebsterCommented:
BTW, Citrix no longer recommends remapping the server's drives.  Microsoft removed that ability in Server 2008 so Citrix removed the drive remap utility from XenApp 5 for Server 2008.  Microsoft no longer supports installing the OS on anything but the C drive.

Just to clarify, you're trying to figure out where S: is pointing to right?

CarlWebster - I noticed that they remapped all of the drive. C:\ drive is definitely the M:\ drive, and upon noticing this, I changed my "M Drive" Application to the X:\ drive. I have created (in My Computer) the proper X:\ drive pointing to the proper Location.

I am looking to have an application created called "X Drive" which points to the same location as the X:\ drive in My Computer. Is this possible? How does one accomplish this?

The "O Drive" takes you to the O:\ drive. The "V Drive" takes you to the V:\ drive, etc.

Bring up the Publish Application Wizard.  When it asks you 'Application Type', select "Content", then fill in "X:\" in the 'Content Address' field.  It should be that simple.

I wish it were that simple! I tried just what you said.

Here is what I get when I tried to double click on the drive. Cannot find file:///X:/

tamaneriAuthor Commented:
And yes, X:\ is a mapped drive on the server, and readily accessible.

Shouldn't it be X:\ instead of X:/

That may have been a type-o in your post.  What version of Presentation Server are you running?

tamaneriAuthor Commented:
Presentation Version 4.0

Attached is another screen shot of what it is configured.

Not sure why it opens in file:///X:/ when it's configured as X:\.



ALso attached is how one of the working ones is configured.

Content uses the same conventions as web site stuff.  so a file is accessed with file:///.

Which brings me back to my original question... How the hell do the other ones work? Lol.

It looks to me like they are not configured with the "Content" selection.
