Xenapp 6.5 Published Desktop Application Extensions

Hi!

I am deploying a new Xenapp farm. We are publishing a desktop and I have and issue with how the file shares are being mapped.  I am publishing office into the published desktop on dedicated "Office Servers"  That part works fine except I am running into an issue when you open a file locally inside published Desktop it recognizes the extension and open the office program. For this example lets say it is MS word that is being published into the desktop.  Word opens and I get the following error.

"\\CLIENT\U$\filename.docx  cannot be found.  Check your spelling, or try a different path."

If I go to file -> open and browse to the location it opens fine. Just isnt being passed throught the desktop session to the app session.  

I am fairly new to Xenapp and I have a lot of PS 4 time but we didnt publish applications the same way I am trying to do it now.

So thanks in advance and I really appreciate it!

As a side note.  A client drive will map all the way through from the desktop all the way to the app server.

I did the reg hack for the Native drives setting and that did not take care of it.

Thanks!

If I understand correctly you are trying to access an ICA session from within another ICA session.

   Your Workstation  --Session 1-->    Server A publishing desktop    --Session 2-->    Server B publishing Office                    

Two outcomes:

1. From Server B you only see the drives from your workstation

2. From Server B you only see the drives from Server A

This should be controlled by a setting on your workstation and server A and it is by design. This setting is 'NativeDriveMapping' in the registry under the following location:

32-bit: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Citrix\ICA Client\Engine\Configuration\Advanced\Modules\ClientDrive

64-bit: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Citrix\ICA Client\Engine\Configuration\Advanced\Modules\ClientDrive

Thus to see the drives from Server A you need to set:
1. 'NativeDriveMapping' to FALSE on your workstation
2. 'NativeDriveMapping' to TRUE on your Server A

You are a gentleman and a scholar.. Thanks so much.  I had done that reg edit but it was in the 32-bit env.

It was my pleasure that my comment was a spot on to resolving your issue. I appreciate your complement by describing me as a scholar.

However, in order for me (and other experts) to continue supporting you it would be at least fair to grant me the points especially that you accepted my comment as a spot on to your issue.
