I am new to this and I cannot figure out the life for me why this virtual is coming up as unregistered. I followed our KB - reinstalled VDA 7.6 rebooted and still nothing. Any experts in this area?

I have a Citrix environment and looking to use Server 2016 for Shared Server desktop (VDA).  

I received the 2016 RDS User Cals but when I go to apply it I don't see a 2016 RDS Option. This license server is 2012 R2.
Am I missing something here..I am having a hard time excepting that I have to run a 2016 server just to apply 2016 RDS CALS

We are currently running a hybrid Citrix environment consisting of XenApp 6.5 ( 80 servers; Windows 2008 R2 ) & XenApp 7.12 ( 60 PVS servers; Windows 2012 ) with Storefront 3.9, NetScaler v12 and Dell WYSE thin clients running ThinOS firmware versions 8.3 and 8.4. We are only utilizing Citrix for application virtualization ( not VDI ).

We are seeing mass Citrix disconnects daily on the thin clients approximately the same time BUT not always the same thin clients. I do not believe this to be a Dell issue but I have checked my timeouts in Storefront & server ICA connections and haven't found anything that would result in this behavior.

Can someone point me in the correct direction or is/has also experienced this issue?

Forgot to mention, the thin clients are only displaying a tracking board with no human interaction what-so-ever ( possibly idle sessions ).

Thank you much.

We are preparing to upgrade our version of VMware.

Currently we are at VMware version 6.0 Update 2.
Planning to upgrade to VMware version 6.0 update 3.

I am researching to make sure different applications and equipment are compatible with VMware 6.0 update 3.  I have update the Citrix NetScaler program;but, I am  to sure how to research if our Citrix XenApp servers?

Question:  How may I check if Citrix XenApp Server 6.5 is compatible with VMware 6.0 Update 3 (build 5050593)
Hello we're attempting to force users to log into Store Front using either their CAC or PKI Certs.  Reading the below article


Under Smart Cards, it says "you configure Citrix Receiver for Windows for pass-through authentication and enable domain pass-through authentication to StoreFront."  is there a way to centrally configure Citrix Receiver, or does this have to happen locally on users machines?  Our domain has only user accounts, the only machines are our servers.

I recently took a XenDesktop 7.x 201 class to help me over this obstacle I have with StoreFront being unreachable by receiver clients or web browser. I've even gone step-by-step with the lab exercises, which had worked in the lab, to no avail.

Virtually everything else seems to be working great, but that dire piece. So, my StoreFront server has a Domain cert granted by my CA and it's bound to the Default site using "mysite.storefront.com" in the Common Name and Friendly Name fields.

StoreFront has my Delivery Controller registered and I have a Machine Catalog and Delivery Group made.

I'm more than happy to go back and forth with troubleshooting, if any of you have the time, but I cannot sneakernet my Citrix Receiver logs (which I enabled) or any other logs.

I'm working with Windows Server 2016 in a VMware environment.

Thanks in advance!!!
On trying to fetch Application Usage Report from Citrix Delivery Services Console I am getting the following error-

"The selected database is not a Resource Manager summary database"

The Summary database is configured in SQL Server 2008 R2 and DSN has already been created with the name "rmsummarydatabase". The Summary Database connection is happening properly.

Summary Database Configuration is showing the following -

Need your help to resolve this issue so that I can generate Reports.

I have a user whose outlook search is not working on citrix receiver. I believe outlook is in Live mode when its ran from citrix.

No indexing can be perfomed for obvious reasons.

I have created a new profile for the user but this has not helped.

Is there any other way around it by any chance?

Thank you.

I had this question after viewing XenApp.

This was a previous question i submitted, I closed it before i had time to work this issue.
So what's happening is if you take a look at the screenshot i need to change the username.  the current username is the old system admin, who no longer works here, in the last post they mentioned disabling this account would have no effect. However after disabling his account, Citrix Delivery Console is not able to discover anything, cant see the farm until we re enable his account.
Are there major features missing for load balancing purposes? Throughput limits? High cost?
Hello Experts, I'm trying to determine if Citrix XenApp 6.0 uses FIPS vaildated crytography.  Where / How would i check this is?
In our citrix environment patching will be performed on Master image (Base machine) and promoted to target device through PVS console.

Patching is configured through SCCM software but due to Windows update service getting terminated/stopped /disabled automatically patches through SCCM console is not downloading on Master Image Citrix server.

Master Image server OS : 2008 R2

Requesting anyone to help out to find a sustainable solution.
Hi experts

I have a strange problem in a Citrix implementation. Suddenly in one catalog all the machines lose the domain trust relationship at the same time. I can log on as a local admin and reset the machine account password, but after a server restart, all changes are discarded. If I rejoin the xenapp server to the domain, after the restart, the server show that is in the domain but the trust relationship problem is still there. If I disjoin the server from domain, after the restart the server still shows that is joined to the domain.  If i log on as a local admin, create a file/folder in the system drive and restart, the file/folder is missing. If I attach the disk of the xenapp server to another virtual machine, I can create files and folders and the changes are persistent.The catalog is "Server OS" type, and I think this is a citrix related issue, but I´m not sure 100%.

Googling about xenapp servers that lose trust relationship I can only find info about how to reset the machine account password in domain, but I´m looking for a procedure to avoid this situation.

The virtualization is vmware.

Any ideas ?

Thanks in advance and apologies for the bad english
Hi EE,

This question is an inverse of what is usually asked in EE; I am looking for an explanation for what happened not a solution.

The setup:

A web application that used IIS as it's web server was having performance issues (12-27 second load times) when loading a large amount of form data.  The issue only occurred with users on our Citrix environment anyone who accessed the web application from their local desktop didn't have the issue. So while waiting for our Citrix guys to look into the issue, I thought I do a mid-week index rebuild on all tables in the server using the following script:

DECLARE @fillfactor INT
SET @fillfactor = 100
SELECT OBJECT_SCHEMA_NAME([object_id])+'.'+name AS TableName
FROM sys.tables
OPEN TableCursor
FETCH NEXT FROM TableCursor INTO @TableName
SET @sql = 'ALTER INDEX ALL ON ' + @TableName + ' REBUILD WITH (FILLFACTOR = ' + CONVERT(VARCHAR(3),@fillfactor) + ')'
EXEC (@sql)
FETCH NEXT FROM TableCursor INTO @TableName
CLOSE TableCursor

Open in new window

Observing the fragmentation levels of the tables in the respective database was minor ranging between 7%-13% percent. Suddenly performance issues disappeared for the Citrix users.

How did this happen or did something else to fix this issue that isn't SQL related.

Any assistance is welcome.

Thank you.
Running ldp.exe on domain controller using domain admin credentials and simple bind, I got the same error the first run. Now it gives me The token supplied to the function is invalid.

Running ldp.exe on a different domain controller on different domain/forest, the results are valid.

So something wrong on first domain controller. How/Where to find the problem?

I have about 50 free lancers that I use for specific work. My client system requires that all of the free lancers come from a static IP or IP's. Each of the free lancers use an application that connects back to my client. Is there any way to do this other than deploy citrix or TS desktops for each of the users? I have seen some VPN services but they don't take into account the client application they work fine for internet access. Thanks.
