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

Citrix XenApp 6.5 disaster recovery

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

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

Powershell – Check XenApp LoadEvaluator

At a customer I was busy checking the servers via the Citrix Management Console wich load evaluator was set. Because the environment contains a lot of servers it is a time consuming job. Therefor I created 2 small scripts.

The first script will do the following.

  • Add citrix powershell Snapin
  • Get a list of XenApp servers in the farm
  • Check for each server wich load evaluator is assigned
  • Write the result to a CSV fileThe second script will do the following.

This version of Citrix Receiver does not support selected encryption [Error 1046: The Virtual Driver is not loaded]

At a customer we are building an environment based on the following technologies.

  • Windows 2008R2
  • Citrix Xenapp 6.5
  • RES WorkspaceManager 2011
  • RES VDX (former workspace extender)
  • Windows 2003 (Legacy Farm)
  • XenApp 5.0 (Legacy Farm)

At the client side we use a HP thinclient with Windows 7 embedded with the Citrix receiver 3.0.

During the tests of the environment we experienced an error message. When starting a Citrix XenApp session with RES VDX enabled the following error might occur: “This Version of Citrix Receiver does not support the selected encryption. [Error 1046] The Virtual Driver is not loaded”. Continue Reading
