1)      Is there any easy way in AD or elsewhere to see which users in your domain access their apps and files via citrix and which don’t. Where would you look, if you know 50% of your users access their apps and files via citrix and 50% don’t, how can you see which do and don’t, any sort of clue in ADUC?

2)      Is there any specific terminology in AD/citrix world that describes the bunch of users which access their files and apps via citrix, and those that do so just from a traditional desktop?

3)      If users don’t have a true thin client when accessing citrix, i.e. they get the same desktop build as a normal desktop user, how does an admin enforce they do their work via citrix, i.e. if they can access a file share or outlook from outside citrix on their desktop, how does the admin force the user to access such via citrix. We have established they don’t use pass through authentication, so for citrix users its PC on, login via interactive login to domain, then login to citrix via the client. I assume the admin has to make the stage before the citrix login unfriendly so the user needs to access citrix? Or how else do you enforce or push users down the citrix route?
