Hi,
I'm having a problem getting Citrix XenDesktop to load from a browser after installing it all.
Background;
It's all running on VMware, I have set it up correctly as far as i can tell, I can create VM's from the Xen studio, but the desktops all say "Unregistered" which i think is the main problem.
When i log onto the web interface, i can log in but then it just hangs trying to connect.
Any ideas?
I'm running VSphere 4, and Citrix Desktop Studio 5

Are you using Active Directory or the Windows Registry to ensure the VMs register with your DDC?  Using the Registry is the preferred method.  The key is located at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Citrix\VirtualDesktopAgent\ListOfDDCs.

AD registration was the default method with XD4.  With XD5 Citrix recommends using the Registry.  Look at the following for instructions: http://docs.citrix.com -> XenDesktop -> XenDesktop 5 -> Manage -> Managing your Controller Environment -> About Controller Discovery.

just re-installed it all again with a new "Master" Windows 7 VM that i used to replicate. All registered fine.
Not sure what caused the original problem but at least i have it working now.
