SessionIDWe have XenAPp 6.5 Farm with servers hosting applications.

I noticed something when a user opens up a session (launc Application) the Session ID that he gets is Increasing number

If no one is connected or has application launced i belive they should get session ID as 1 or 2 or failrly low number

But in my case i see they receive session ID 31 and above

how is session ID assigned to an ICA session.

due to session sharing you are getting the same session id, for more details check citrix this article http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX159159

No i dont mean why i am getting the same session Id.

I mean why i am getting session ID 31 instead of session ID  1 when no one else has an opne session.

Thanks as it says the session ID is for reuse after logoff.

In my case maybe that the algorithm is not working or whatever is  happening hence we r getting a higher number for session id.

Any way i can know what is happening
Also try to reboot the citrix server and check.

Why does this matter to you? Is it causing you any issues?
Have you checked that all processes from existing sessions are exiting?

It doesnt matter to me, but i like to know in case someone asks me ..

I havent checked the processes .. but will try and have a look .. Any suggesstion where to look.

Or on the server itself via Task Manager.
at my servers the ica-listerner are reused (currently i have ICA-TCP#12) but the session-id increasing from day to day. (currently 132).
i have seen this many times (also at a customer a session id  >3000 ! )
there are never problems.
the counter are reset while rebooting the server.
Possible thats by design.
