Hi guys, how are you all doing?
I´m having a annoying trouble with my xenapp 6.5 farm. It´s a quite small environment (3 SERVERS - 1 - WI and CSG at DMZ and 2 at production nw)
Turns out I cant see any of my servers at the "servers" folder. As result I can´t perform any management in the farm.
Now, for example, im just able to see logged users thru task manager. I´m unable to create and publish new applications to users. Even after restarts I can´t bring the farm back for managing. I don´t know when that started so I can´t really track from evnt vwr.

Hotfixes Installed:
XA650W2K8R2X64R04
KB2728738
KB2748302
KB2778831
KB2896256

I considered to rejoin servers back to farm through setup but I want cause less impact as possible and I´m afraid the issue come back after few days.
Appreciate any help.

Have you tried dsmaint /recreatelhc?

That is supposed to be rebuilt upon a server reboot but it doesn't always happen.

After the dsmaint, backup your database and then run dscheck /full.  That will check your datastore for issues.

try "qfarm" and "qfarm /load"
do you see your servers?
your apps are listed within the appcenter?

Sorry guys for the delay! I´ve installed XA650W2K8R2X64R05 hotfix and everything got back smoothly!

@Carlwebster, I chose for applying the latest hotfix before performing your suggestions, thankfully it worked :D, thanks for your help.

@dkotte, the load changed from time to time (800~1000), reflecting the workload on the servers and Yes, my applications were listed in appcenter but they were not related (published) to any server...
