Citrix IMA Not working

I have 4 citrix servers (CTX01 - 04) in my farm with 2 AAC and 2 Access Gateways. Recently my server 2 (CTX02) is not longer responding to client request. Users can login via the gateway but when they click on application, it says "The resource you requested is no longer available from the servers or the specified user no longer has access to it" CTX04 holds my DS and a qfarm from CTX02 replies with IMA services not available. Other server can see the DS but CTX02 cannot.

I have done the little troubleshooting i know but no possible solution. I thought of removing CTX02 from my farm and re-adding it again but don't what effect this might have on my farm.

I recreated the LHC successfully but IMA services not still starting. I will appreciate any assistance i can get please.

Thanks,

Mario.

On CTX02 do a CHFARM to a local access database and then CHFARM back to the original.

Dear CarlWester,

My database (Citrix_rm) is on a SQL server. What effect will this have? .

Carl WebsterCommented:
Nothing.  DOing a CHFARM on CTX02 will just create a new farm and then you will turn right around and CHFARM back to the original farm/data store/database.  The whole process "should" take less than 10 minutes.

Running CHFARM on CTX02 will create a new farm with an access database/data store.

I would uninstall all Citrix components from CTX02 and then reinstall XenApp and join to the existing farm.

I used forced removal on Access Management Console to remove CTX02. I will reinstall componets again and try to add it to the farm. Will keep you posted.

Many thanks

I re-installed PS 4.5 on ctx02 and added it to my farm but still get the same error "The resource you requested is no longer available from the servers or the specified user no longer has access to it"

Any more help please?

The second issue now is the my new server is also a DS. Is this right?

Carl WebsterCommented:
CTX02 does not have a data store unless you did not join it to the existing farm when you reinstalled XenApp.

When are you getting the "resource you requested..." error?

mariobrownAuthor Commented:
I have fixed the 2nd issue now. Removed and re-added the 2nd server to the farm. i still have this error "The resource you requested is no longer available from the servers or the specified user no longer has access to it" trying to acces applications.

Any ideas please

For the error:
"The resource you requested is no longer available from the servers or the specified user no longer has access to it"

If you removed the server from the farm you will probably have to add that server to the published apps again.

The STA`s are a configuration of the WI. Do you still have problems with it?

For your Web Interface site, what server or servers do you have listed in Farm Maintenance?
