I have a windows 2008 Server with xenapp 6.5 on it.  Its in a workgroup.  I have everything installed and I am trying to log on through the web interface and I am getting the error:

The Account Authority is not trusted by the farm to access an IMA service on the appropriate server.  Route to server failed; check your authorization and network configuration. AA: NT, User: WORKGROUP\cfranks, Function: ImaMfRpc::NFuse_ValidateCredentialsXD

I have tried everything.  Also since its in a workgroup will external users be able to access this Citrix farm?  There is no FQDN since its not part of a domain.

it needs someway of authenticating the user  workgroup\username will NEVER in any way shape or form ever work as it will try and authenticate to workgroup which doesn't hold any authentication rules.. computername\username may work, but I am doubtful as the xenapp has to send and receive authentication from the computer.. you could try it though..

ok, I changed it to computername\usermame and that worked.  Is this going to work externally?

normally the answer would be no.. you have to setup an authentication method on that computer and use it which is why it needs a domain, the server can then query AD and authenticate..
