I am looking to upgrade outlook 2010 to outlook 2016.

we have E3 licenses available for users.
outlook 2010 is installed on premise in citrix environment.we are  streaming Outlook 2010 via XenApp not part of the VDI build.

1) can we download office 2016 from office 365 portal , if so then can it  auto populate  on each 300 users desktop, if so what configuration changes we have to make.
2) if not then how we should gor for an upgrade to outlook 2016 as our subscriptions has covered office application?

i have outlook 2010 installed in my citrix environment

we have enabled cache mode for users and their .ost file are being saved in 1 common file server for all users.
they are using shared desktops based on xenapp.

we are about to go for upgrade to outlook 2013 or 2016

so when we upgrade can we git rid of cache mode in outlook 2016

as i believe we have enabled cache mode in outlook 2010 as it is required as per citrix environment.

also disabled indexing as it is causing high cpu usage in citrix servers

so in nutshell

1) can we enable indexing when we upgrade to outlook 2016 but can it again cause high cpu usage on citrix servers

any solutions for that?

2)also if we enable online mode in outlook 2016 how users will get back their emails as they are in cache mode at present with outlook 2010

outlook is configured on premise to use office 365 mailboxes as users are in office 365.
i just want to understand 1 thing

i see a citrix environment in one company

90% of users are using xenapp having non persistence desktops.

i see seperate DHCP scope defined in one of citrix servers.

when i do ipconfig, i see address coming as 10.x.x.x

we have on premise AD where users are synced through AAD sync to office 365 and mailboxes in office 365

outlook is 2010 and is configured on premise in stalled on xenapp and published to studio

my question:
there is group policy called outlook GPO for outlook users whose cache files shoudl be enabled

i know this is bit vague

but if DHCP scope is defined in citrix server and dekstops are getting IP'S from there

how come group policy called outlook GPO is working for outlook users

when there is no DHCP scope defined in AD

I MEAN HOW that GOP is geeting affected in outlook where citrix has its own DHCP

is that some thing AD has in its users and computers accounts for cirtix servers and then it si working?
Why would Windows 2008r2 “DFS / Distributed File System Namespace  Cause internet links to websites to Disappear in IE favorites in two users RDSuser folder.  There is a total of 100 users and only two have this problem.
Note: There is a total of 3 domain controllers, and 10 servers which is in a Citrix environment ; The fact that these are Citrix servers may not matter. The servers are 2008r2.
We are setting up and testing out Citrix XenApp 7.17 and we have

- 3 Microsoft terminal servers
- 1 master server

It appears how this version of Citrix XenApp updates the terminal servers is that you make the change on the master and test it.  The when you are ready the Citrix Studio software clones the master server and replaces the 3 terminal servers.  As we are testing this out I tried to push some updates (new clones virtual servers) I have run into this errors message from the vsphere client:  "Snapshot hierarchy is too deep".

I originally thought it was a Citrix error; but, I now think that this is a VMware error.  Please see the screen shots and how many snapshots we have associated with that master virtual server.

I wonder if I should "delete all" snapshots or what I should do.  Ideas?

I am trying to add KEYWORDS to an existing batch of Citrix applications to allow the use of application filtering by keyword on Storefront. Below is the command I am currently using:

Get-BrokerApplication -Name PARTIALCOMMONNAME* | Set-BrokerApplication -Description "KEYWORDS:keyword"

and when testing this works great. However, there are some applications which contain an existing description which ideally I would like to keep. Is there a method to insert a new description rather than overwriting it?

Many thanks

i am new to citrix, we have right now installed outlook 2010 configured in citrix environment to connect to office 365 exchange

we use VDI with non- persistence disk, we log in to individual  desktop with citrix receiver installed

we need to upgrade outlook 2010 to outlook 2016 , do we need to go citrix studio to upgrade  outlook 2010

i am not sure how the connection happens when we connect through citrix receiver on our desktop and open outlook 2010 which is configured to connect to office 365

can some body explain how the connection happens from vdi to where actually outlook 2010 is installed so i can do the upgrade
i have 2 questions of same topic.

1) we have outlook 2010 client configured in citrix environment (on premise) which in turn is configured to use office 365 portal , as mailboxes are on office 365.
we need to upgrade to outlook 2013 or 2016, which product should we go for . and are there any steps needed to upgrade from outlook 2010 to outlook 2016 or outlook 2013

how do we configure upgrade in citrix environment as they are desktop profiles in citriz , is there any steps or article.

2) we recently faced a soft delete mailbox in office 365, that was due to the user AD account was disabled in on premise so we had to reenable the AD account and resync through AAD
sync in order to get the mailbox out from soft delete

so my question here is the user account was not in azure active directory then and only in on premise AD ,

had the user been in azure active directory and not on on premise and the mailbox could still go to soft delete?

so in order for all user accounts in azure active directory do we need to get rid of on premise AD?
we have ADFS set up

Any body could explain?

3) when i use outlook web access ( to check my mail i see only 3 emails in OWA mailbox vis a vis 100 emails in outlook which is configured on my desktop

I'm trying to make a decision on getting for our company an EventLog Analyzer.  As you know, in Citrix XenApp XenDesktop world, DDC, SQL, Hypervisor, and VDA are most important components. Whenever we received Priority one (P1) ticket, we have to run to analyze all these servers event logs.  Shall we get any EventLog Analyzer softwares or tools to analyze and consolidate all these events from various servers? Finally, we have to get the root cause of the issue.  Atlease, get help which component has an issue.
Example, If SQL server service is in a hung state, the result would be entire site down. In such situations, we need an EventLog Analyzer.

Please Suggest.

Citrix XenDesktop 7.15
Windows 2016

We have an Windows 2012 RDS farm to which 100 users connect remotely. None of them have issues BUT some users which have their mouse movements out of sync.
Important to know there is that those users specifically connect from a Citrix farm (so they connect first to citrix, then from the citrix to rds farm).

Any idea what settings we could set to adjust this?

How can I make the VNCcom program open successfully from the programs start menu. ?

When users access “ VNCcom” from the start menu they receive the following error message below.

And attempt to open the program, it  does not open and I get the below error.

"Only administrators have permission to add, remove, or configure server software during a terminal services remote session. If you want to install or configure software on the server, contact you network administrator".

It only works when:
However if a short cut is created on their desktop for this program or access it directly from the Programs x86 folder
The program opens with no errors as seen below.

The environment is a Windows 2008 r2 Citrix 6.5 enviornment.
