Hide & Restrict Access to Citrix XenApp 6.5 server local drives

Hi all,

I've been trying to hide and restrict access to Citrix XenApp 6.5 local drives from users, though I'm having a bit of difficulty with it. The farm is on a Server 2008 R2 SP2 OS, I've created a GPO to hide the drives though this doesn't appear to be working, I have also read that creating a GPO specifically for user Group Policy loopback processing mode. "Replace"

Is there any straightforward way of hiding and restricting access to these drives from users with these GPO's?

This was rather a simple process in PS 4.5

You can use a utility that is called hidecalc.

you run it and select the drive letters you want to hide from the users and you can export for a GPO, reg file or even powershell.

I use the gpo.

Why don't you try the Citrix policy by disabling Client Drive Redirection?

as Mutawadi suggested using the citrix policy is the best way to achieve this.

If you only want to restrict access to a particular drive, you can also use the icaclient.adm and apply it as a GPO.  This file is included within Citrix Receiver and installed on every client computer, so it's just a matter of copying it into AD or the local server and configuring as a GPO.

1. Downloaded the hidecalc tool.
2. Launched the tool, chose which drives and other settings (Hide & Restrict Citrix Server local drives i.e C, D, E )
3. Created .adm file
4. Imported the file into Administrative Templates from the GPO I created.
5. Linked the GPO to OU ( denied GPO applying to Domain Admins)
6. Waited for replication ( I could have forced replication with gpupdate /force but thought it best to let it replicate on replication schedule)
7. Tested with test account.

Works like a charm.

Thanks dborger..
