I was wondering if anyone else is seeing this behavior?  I have received zero response from Citrix.

When connecting to some Windows 10 computers using GoToAssist Expert, certain mouse clicks no longer work as expected. This seems to be limited to connecting to Windows 10 Creators Update (1703) machines.  It does not affect Windows 10 version 1607 machines.

Example 1: when trying to open an elevated command prompt (CMD), right clicking on "command prompt" does not give any choices such as "run as administrator".

Example 2: pressing the Windows key and starting "This PC" and then right clicking does not offer any choices such as properties.

There are many more.

The really interesting thing is that while remote computer is running the GoToAssist session, even directly accessing the machine through its attached keyboard and mouse will not provide the expected content from Windows 10. However, as soon as the GoToAssist session is closed, the same keystrokes and clicks on that machine yield the expected results from Windows. In other words, the open GoToAssist session causes Windows behavior to change both locally and remotely.

FYI, I am logged in locally and remotely as an administrator, and the GoToAssist program is running as a service.

Running GoToAssist Expert.  As far as I can tell, with the latest versions.

Just downloaded the Xendesktop and I'm going through the installation on my newly spun up Windows Server 2016 core OS.  I'm getting an error always on IIS during the xendesktop setup.  Keeps saying "'dism' component failed to install with error 0x00000032." see screen shot.  IIS is installed on the 2016 server.  

Any clues on how to move forward?

We have windows 2016 Standard server which after installed updated got converted to a Data Center.
is there any way back to windows standard (I have Citrix VDA installed and configured on it)
without reinstalling windows from Scratch. Power Shell only allowed upgrade not a downgrade.

My team has had reoccurring issue with usb peripherals, ( keyboard, mouse, web cams) stop working.  Event logs ID 219 indicates several "Kernel-PnP" events  in which  drivers fail to load.  

Root hubs in device manager states  driver failed to load for hardware because previous instance of the driver is still in memory (code  38)    

the issue  does not reoccur once Citrix receiver is uninstalled.
so has anyone seen this issue and knows definitively why would Citrix receiver cause a fault.

Environment  - Win7 Ent -x64

The ultimate Citrix XenDesktop 7.x internals cheat sheet!
What if you have to shut down the entire Citrix infrastructure for hardware maintenance, software upgrades or "the unknown"? I developed this plan for "the unknown" and hope that it helps you as well. This article explains how to properly shut down and start your ENTIRE Citrix environment.

Hello experts,

We have just re-installed Citrix server and clients are getting the following error:

Unable to launch your application.  Contact your help desk with the following information: Cannot connect to the Citrix XenApp server.  There is no Citrix XenApp server configured on the specified address.

Need help troubleshooting the Citrix XenApp.  We are using 4.5 and running windows server 2003 (old and plan to upgrade soon)

Help on this issue would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

I have users who log into another domain using Citrix, but they log in with their standard domain credentials using a trust. I am trying to use GPP to Map drives, however it will not map the drives to the users. I have added the users to a domain local security group from the other domain which has a two way forest trust. According to everything I find online this is how it should be done but it's not working. I add users from the domain they're logging into to the OU and it maps the drive fine. Did MS change how this is handled? can I no longer do it this way. I'm only finding threads that date back to 2013 at the latest on this and everyone seems to have gotten it to work by doing what I described. Any clues on what would be causing it? if I do a GPresult I see no GPOs being applied to those users in the security groups.

The domain I'm attempting this on is all Windows server 2012r2 and consists of 1 DC and 1 RDS

We recently upgraded to HP's T630 thin clients which use Windows 10 IoT along with the Unified Write Filter.  Usually the same person is using our thin clients but sometimes other people use them in our Customer Service Department where we deploy many thin clients.  For some reason every time a user logs on it rebuilds their profile and I have to refresh the Citrix Receiver icon to rebuilt their icons.  I even told the write filter to allow C:\users.  This worked on our old HP t620 thin clients which used Windows 8.1 but no longer works on Windows 10.  Any ideas?  I can't just turn off the write filter, let the user log in so it builds and keeps their profile, then turn the write filter back on because users swap thin clients way too often.   Thank you.

Using XenApp 6.5 r07 / Citrix Client 4.7
Running Windows 7 on the laptop with a Lenovo docking station
2 - 1920 x 1080 monitors connected to the docking station.
When I open a Citrix app (Putty, Notepad) the window cannot be resized (no arrow indicators on window corners) and when I attempt to move the window it moves one half an inch. Can't move to another monitor. No tool tips will display for applications within a Remote desktop connection.
If I remove the laptop from the docking station, moving / resizing / tool tips work.
If I only have one monitor plugged into laptop directly, it works.
Citrix admin says Citrix server Display memory limit / ICA Graphics is set to max at 131072KB.

I have checked all blogs and Cittix support and cannot find the resolution for this.

So.. we could not upgrade the vCenter from 5.5 to 6.5 so we needed to do a new install of vCenter  6.5 and name as well, they both are running simulataneously.

I talked to Citrix and the stated I can just update the hosting  configuration with new name and put new certs in and call it a day before i began the process

That was not the case and when I modified the current connection it would not take credentials and called Citrix and then they stated not possible and needed to create the entire thing over . I've googled and found conflicting reports. i did a test connection and used same credentials and it worked.

Has anyone changed an existing hosting configuration with new vCenter name successfully?

Hi all,

After having a pen test we have report outlining a number of insecure ciphers that have been highlighted with our Netscaler 7500 appliances. I looking in Traffic managment / SSL/Cipher groups I can see there are 104 polices in here.

Are all these polices in use if they are in the list?

Hello,

We have a Windows 2012 RDS environment.  

We installed Acrobat Reader DC and also MS Office to the RDS servers.  

If we want the applications on the RDS server to be able to print to PDF, what are the requirements?  

Thanks.

See attachment.  I know there is a registry entry to fix this, but I can't find it.  I've done it before.
Clicking "yes' is not the solution, because the error is per user, not computer.

We currently have a self service portal allowing users to reset their passwords, and unlock their accounts based on authentication methods.  We are a heavy citrix environment.  I was wondering if there was anyway for me to add citrix sessions resets into it via code.  Its all web based right now, so it would have to connect to a citrix server and execute a command to 'log' the person off or 'reset' their session.  Any ideas?

Issue:
We have a user that has a XenDesktop VDA with PvD. Adobe Cloud with Photoshop, Illustrator, etc. is installed in the PvD.

The user gets a filled up scratch disk every few weeks.
scratch disk full
Troubleshooting already done:
When searching through all hidden files on the C and P drives, I can't find the "photoshop temp" files mentioned by Adobe. Based on file size, it looks like the scratch disk files are mounted in the hidden V drive (userdata.vhd) of the P drive.

Going to Purge in the Edit menu of Photoshop comes up with greyed out options.

The scratch disk location in Photoshop is the C and P drive.

I know that we could reset the PvD, but that would remove all of the installed Adobe programs which would be a huge time waster.

Questions:
- How can I easily remove the scratch disk files without resetting the PvD?
- Can I provide steps to the end user so they can clear out their own scratch disk?

Hello,

Please could anyone write me a powershell script that does the following on a Windows Server 2008 R2 (with PowerShell 4):

Opens IE11 in a maximised window, going to site http://xyz.com
Then if the user closes the browser (i.e. there are no remaining instances of iexplore.exe) then the script loops back round to the above, and opens it again, ad infinitum.

This will be running as a XenApp published app, where published app is actually powershell.exe - so having the script staying running at all times is vital, otherwise the published app session will log off.

I've looked at kiosk mode as an alternative solution, but I want the user to be able to use the address bar and Back/Forward buttons, so kiosk mode is no go.

Many thanks.

We have many users experiencing intermitten crashes and lag with Microsoft office 2013 products.  We have 8 citrix servers and roughly 130 users.  Each citrix server is windows 2008 r2 and runs xenappp 6.5.  Just looking for some new ideas, we have been working at this awhile.

To connect to our EMR, the user is required to download a Citrix ica file. When opening this application in IE11, a prompt is presented asking whether to open or save the ica. I have added the site to trusted sites, intranet sites and tried to change settings for never asking for the specific download. I have not been able to rectify this issue. Any suggestions?

Hi all,

I have a couple of storefront servers that are in  NLB cluster. I need to renew the SSL certificate as its expiring soon. The certificate was created with our internal root CA and is used for LAN connections only.

I would normally go into IIS on both SF servers and select the renew wizard by choosing our CA server. This with then automatically renew cert with need to create a CSR.

Are there any other implications in terms of the storefront config?

Hi techs,
I have a XenServer on which I have upgrade to 7.2. After machine reboot, Local Storage downgraded from 2TB to 235GB. Previously, I used XS 7.0, and on the machine are 2 LV /dev/sda and /dev/sdb. Both were parts of the Volume Group, /dev/sda3 and /dev/sdb.
the pvscan command shows something very odd:
[root@vps02 ~]# pvscan
  PV /dev/sda3   VG VG_XenStorage-7ce922d3-bbe5-b2e4-e356-1b2680f56bdb   lvm2 [237.86 GiB / 237.86 GiB free]
  PV /dev/sdb                                                            lvm2 [1.64 TiB]
  Total: 2 [1.87 TiB] / in use: 1 [237.86 GiB] / in no VG: 1 [1.64 TiB]

Open in new window

And xe pbd-list command:
[root@vps02 ~]# xe pbd-list
uuid ( RO)                  : 4674d6e8-63a3-4fd9-d6e6-b10f55b4c2ba
             host-uuid ( RO): d07178f4-b032-4f3e-b13e-e777b20f770c
               sr-uuid ( RO): 7ce922d3-bbe5-b2e4-e356-1b2680f56bdb
         device-config (MRO): device: /dev/disk/by-id/scsi-3600508b1001c0e5cf0512b57993b8286-part3,/dev/disk/by-id/scsi-3600508b1001c8d459115217a6c632a09
    currently-attached ( RO): true

Open in new window

All the VMs on this host are diskless, the LocalStorage (in XenCenter) shows no VHD.

in log I found several SR_BACKEND_FAILURE which I don't explain myself why they have occurred ( I attached a log file )
I need to know if I can re-plug the second LVM (/dev/sdb) back in VG without loosing content.
Thank you

I know Citrix has some support for Powershell and have read some of the SDK documentation. Most of it is from the server perspective. I want a Powershell script to run on the client and at the client only that will terminate server connections but leave Citrix Receiver running.

If there is another scripting language that does this easily, that would be helpful.
It has to terminate the connections but leave Citrix Receiver open. The problem we have is not fixed by closing Receiver only by terminating the connections.
Suggestions from the server perspectives or recommended changes to server environment are not useful. Have to terminate the connections from client and all adjustments must be made from client
