I have imported ICAadm template to GPMC, however I noticed the settings for citrix included in the template are not all as the once in the citrix AppCenter policies.
I mean there are many settings missing.

Any idea?

Thank you

For ICA ADM template it should be a straightforward import. Ensure that all steps have been done correctly. Link below illustrates all of the steps .


I personally like to keep my Citrix Policies and Domain Policies separate. This is to ensure consistancy throughout the Citrix Farm. You can also easily isolate individual servers with the Citrix policies.

The problem is not the import. I have already imported the template to GPMC.
I am talking about what settings the templates has is different what policies in Appcenter shows.
I mean if you open Citrix  Appcenter/policies and you create new policies, you will see in the right pane tons of policies that you can configure. In the template you import to GPMC there are not many. it is limited....
