One out of five Citrix XenApp 6.5 servers is not allow clients to redirect/map their local COM4 to the Server COM1. We use a Net Use command at login to map a USB-to-serial signature pad that lives on client COM4.

The other 4 Citrix XenApp servers are properly redirecting/mapping the COM ports fine.

1. First of all check whether that XenApp 6.5 server is at the same patch and hotfix level and same rollup pack level as the others.

2. Connect to a desktop session on that server, open a CMD session and try to manually map the COM port using net use command and check if it is successful.

3. Is the server included in the same Workgroup, OU and Windows security groups as the other XenApp servers - that is to say, is it getting the same set of policies as the others?

2. We are testing RDP COM mapping outside of Citrix next...
3. Yes, same domain and same GPO's for all 5 servers.

Check the installation, configuration and patch level of your application. Is it the same on all servers?
