Set RootDrive -  Xenapp 6.5 (2008 R2)

Hi all,

Currently at the testing stage with a new Xenapp6.5 farm on 2008 R2.

Users have the Z: mapped as the Terminal Servers home drive for applications. No matter what I did i Couldn't seem to map the Z: to the location.

I have just found that the RootDrv2.cmd file was populated with Z: and once I removed this it now works fine.

Historically on my 2003 Pres. 4.5 farm we always had this pointing at Z: but doing this with the new farm doesn't seem to like it.

Do I need this setting? Does it need to point to a drive?

Thanks

This really depends upon how you are working with files, user docs, and file shares.

Here is a good article that discusses the citrix UPM and redirection.  I would not use any scripts to map drives. I would push them via drive maps in group policy for file shares.

This works well for Xenapp too. I didnt do everything the way they suggested but I used it as a reference after the fact to clean things up.

The UPM does a good job if configured correctly and will help with your users retaining settings between Xenapp servers.

Just my 2 cents..
