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.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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?

Following on from my question here, client has one Citrix user that keeps being asked to Activate Office.

There are only two Citrix servers but no matter which one, the systems asks her to activate at least once a day. Not happening to any one else.

Any one seen this before?

Hi Citrix experts

We have xenapp 6.5 windows server 2008 R2 up and running and we are using Citrix Profil manager for These roaming profiles

Now we installed new Citrix xenapp 7.12 windows server 2012 R2

So how can I migrate users profiles without any side effects

Just use robocopy to move users profiles and folder redirection to the. Ew location

And configure the users profiles policy on delivery group and point to the new location

I tested this the folder redirection worked well

But profiles it self got some issues

Like for example internet explorer history and fire fox

Word a d excel history etc

Do you have any idea or third party tool can help me in this case

Kindly advice

Hi,

We had a user who left some time back. Now we are seeing his account is making numerous failed login attempts. When traced down we found that login are coming from 2 server. One is hosting Citrix XenApp 6.0 and other is hosting exchange 2010.
I have checked services on both servers to see his account is tied up to any particular service and this is not the case.
Can anyone please guide where to look for and resolve this.

Thank you in advance

Hello everyone, I am hoping you can help me install the latest Microsoft Bulletin MS17-010 on my Citrix VDI environment.

A previous contractor built the environment and has now left, my task is to patch the Citrix VDI environments in 2 different Datacenters.

Here's my current setup:

15 x XenDesktop 7.6 VDI Machines
2 x XenServers 6.2 Hypervisor Host
Each XenServer is hosting 15 XenDesktops and 2 Delivery Controllers

17 x XenDesktop 7.6
2 x XenServer 6.2 Hypervisor Hosts
Each XenServer is hosting 17 XenDesktops and 2 Delivery Controllers

2 separate environments in 2 datacentres (1 environment in 1 datacentre)

The XenDesktop VDI machines are Static / Non-Persistent.
They have never been shut down or patched.

I'm unable to find the Golden Image / Master Template to be able to patch and create new machines with my current MCS setup.

What questions do I need to ask myself here and/or how do I go about doing this with wisdom for the future? :)

Can anyone help me locate it or at least resolve my situation? Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Issue with freezing in all sites on Citrix

On Exchange 2010 in Event Viewer I'm getting 205 errors: "No DNS servers could be retrieved from network adapter b6ec8a19-09c6-4450-b4f5-77f54556e860. Check if the computer is connected to a network and Get-NetworkConnectionInfo returns any results."

Running Get-NetworkConnectionInfo gives two NICS (which are the internal and external ones)

RunspaceId  : d3fa1621-9146-432c-8d3a-69fdd7b2766c
Name        : XenServer PV Network Device #0

AdapterGuid : 6a08318a-7634-4747-b830-3721c907965d
MacAddress  : CA:B1:0A:B7:24:3E

neither of which seem to be the one giving the error.

Checking HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Microsoft > WindowsNT > CurrentVersion > NetworkCards gives two additional NICs, both Realteks, but with different GUIDs.

A search of the registry for the GUID finds nothing.

How can I stop this error I I can't find the device it is referring to? System seems to be working OK. We are running as VM on XenServer host. Guest is Win 2008R2 SP1, 24GB RAM, Exchange 2010

last night i installed windows updates plus security updates on all Citrix  servers

ZDC - WEB - DB - gateway - LIC

then after sometimes i got message that ZDC server cannot connect with lice server

but at the same time any user try to login he will get this error (( attached file ))

i stoped everything and restart everything but i the error still the same even if the connection between ZDC and LIC and WEB OK

i dont know what i have to do i open case with Citrix but till now no feedback

i had to create GPO like this post

http://vikashkumarroy.blogspot.de/2013/08/xenapp-session-throwing-error-log-on-to.html


then user start to connect to XENAPP but now i think they are using RDP not ICA  something wron with ICA protocol

i dont know if this windows updates which i installed on Citrix servers and domain controllers the main reason

but this look strange for me becuse since years this XENAPP servers used to work without an issue  

any idea ???

Dear Experts,

I've a Windows 2008R2 server configured for Citrix. The ICA login for Citrix part is working perfectly fine; however recently i've found that there is a very strange issue with the RDP login.

I have sufficient Remote Desktop Session licenses added for this server. Under "Remote Desktop Session Host COnfiguration", i've configured "unlimited connections" for RDP-Tcp protocol too.  In fact, i have another server which is configured exactly the same way and it never has any problem.
But for this particular server, it seems that the max concurrent login allowed for RDP is somehow "4".  Once the 5th user trying to login, the RDP windows will just close by itself without any error/warning at all.

Wondering anyone would have any clue?


Thanks
JV

We are a Citrix shop with XenApp 6.5. I only have 200 devices, but over 325 licenses are being consumed. Most by licenses named HTML-XXXX-XXXX, where the X's are random numbers. What are these and how do I eleminate them? I've been revoking licenses daily but I need to solve the root cause here.

I've started purchasing per-user licenses as I will be gradually switching to user from device, but those aren't being issued either, likely because I'm in per-device mode. What is the best way to eliminate these HTML-XXXX-XXXX licenses and transition to the per-user mode?
