Unable to apply Citrix Policy!

Posted on 2011-04-21

I've been trying to apply a Citrix Test Policy to my Citrix Test Farm but it doesn't seem to be applying at all! Is there anyway to force the policy? Does it take a long time for the Policy to take affect? I've been trying to disable client devices such as hard drives in my Citrix sessions but it's not taking affect! I made sure that I logged out of the test account and make sure all sessions where killed before logging in again!

    Right-click Polcies and run the Resultant Policy option.  That will tell you what is applied, or not, for your user account.

    Okay don't want to seem smart when I say this but shouldn't I see the Policy affect on the Client machine?
    I mean I stated in the policy that I didn't want to see devices such as CD-ROM, hard drive in the session yet there they are! Btw I used your tutorial to build my test farm, I knew your name was familiar!

    In the Citrix1 image you sent, the policy name is Test Policy.  The Resultant Policy shows a policy named Drive Policy being applied.  The Citrix2 image shows the policy only being applied to a single user.  When you run the policy wizard, only filter by the one user name.
