Is or was Citrix ever installed on the domain controller?  Double check that it is not installed and that if it was, that all remnants have been cleanly removed.

Also, verify that Citrix data store connectivity is not configured on that domain controller.

It sounds like the domain controller may have been used for some Citrix-related functionality at some point and that perhaps it was not cleanly uninstalled.

No it never installed on DC. And this is happening on all the XenApp Server (we have both 5.0 and 6.5).
The way I unerstand it,
Citrix IMA service contacts Active Directory for authentication purposes.
I think you are right. But wonder why that would do so? I just checked that this service is run by "Network Service".
