Scheduled restart policy on XA 6.0

globaloffice asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-11

We have a XenApp 6.0 farm and I would like to schedule a reboot on all the terminal servers in that farm at a given time of the day using Citrix policy. I have made a set of policies that should trigger this, but nothing seems to happen. It does not look like the servers even make the attempt to reboot. The attached file shows the summary of the policies. There are no filters involved.

I've tried to follow some online guides on the Citrix forums setting this up, but I guess I must be missing something, somewhere. Does anyone have any tips on how to resolve this?

I'm afraid that doesn't work. I already tried following the steps in that guide, to no avail. Since then I removed the worker group filter. It says "If no filters are configured for an enabled policy then all of the configured settings will be applied." in the filter options, and since I want the policy to apply to all the farm servers, I figured the filter was unnecessary.

Not sure if this is available in Xenapp6 but I can do it in Xenapp 5. Check this:

1.Open Citrix Xenapp Advanced configuration
2. Go to server folder> Right click on server you wish to reboot> Go to properties> Update time for reboot and check.


Yeah they've done it differently in XA6. There is no properties option available when you right-click on a server in this version, just the option to disable loggon, publish new applications, display info, etc.
This one is on us!

Advanced Edition. It's not included? It doesn't say that anywhere, sigh. Oh well, I guess we found the problem then. Thanks.
