User got stuck during Citrix logon process

The problem

Last week we got a call from a customer saying that one user is logging on for more than one hour. To confirm what was happening we opened the Citrix Director. We searched for the specific user and found the session status on Logging On. When opening the Citrix Studio we found the user session as active but the user isn’t active at all. When opening the specific server we couldn’t find the user under task manager users. Under processes in the task manager we could find only one process for that specific user, Powershell.exe. Powershell got stuck during execution of the logon script. Continue Reading

App-V 5.0 registry import not working using dynamic config

A few weeks ago I called my colleague Ryan Bijkerk of www.logitblog.com with the question can VDI tuning break App-V? This inspired him to write a nice article on how performance optimization van break App-V which can be found here.

Within our company we are using VDI for desktops and App-V 5.0 for application virtualization.  Also we did some performance tuning on the VDI’s. Everything was working fine until we we got an App-V application with a registry import via the DynamicConfiguration.xml. First I thought this was an issue with one of the settings we did with the performance tuning maybe we disabled a services that was needed. This was the reason for my call with Ryan.

So I started my troubleshooting by enabling the disabled services without any luck. The registry import was still not working. So I started Googling and I came a cross the following site http://www.app-v.info which let me to the Blog of Trentent. His blog provide the solution by setting the following value:

Registry location: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\AppV\Subsystem key:
Value: NoBackgroundRegistryStaging
Data Type: DWORD
Data: 0

You can read the full article here about the the registry value.

Citrix XenApp 6.5 disaster recovery

High availability is always a hot topic at the customer but one thing is often forgotten. Disaster Recovery.

Recently I had a disaster recovery test on a Xenapp 6.5 environment. Scenario, delete all components.

Before starting I had to make sure that the backup was completed successfully. After deleting all components, VM’s, Databases etc… I started the restore. First I started to restore the Operating Systems then I restored the database for XenApp 6 after that I started an unattended install of XenApp 6.5 DataCollector by Login Solution 4. After the installation of the DataCollector I did a check to see if the farmsettings, farmpolicies and all other settings are restored again. Continue Reading
