Citrix: Script for logging off disconnected users


Ik kwam het volgende script tegen in een post van Joe Shonk op het forum van Brianmadden.com.

On Error Resume Next

Const wbemFlagReturnImmediately = &h10
Const wbemFlagForwardOnly = &h20
Const cActive = 0
Const cDisconnected = 4
Const strComputer = “.”

Set objWMIService = GetObject(“winmgmts:\\” & strComputer & “\root\Citrix”)
Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery(“Select * from Metaframe_Session Where sessionstate = ” & cDisconnected)

For Each objItem In colItems
if (objItem.SessionID > 0) and (objItem.SessionID < 65530) then
objItem.Logoff
end if
Next

Set objWMIService = Nothing

Dit script zorgt er voor dat alle Sessions die nog op Disconnected staan, netjes worden afgesloten. Dit script is handig om te draaien voor dat een Citrix server opnieuw wordt opgestart.

Citrix: Username.Domain folders on the TSProfile Share


Het kan voorkomen dat je de onderstaande tsprofiles tegen komt op je TSProfile share. Meer informatie over hoe dit komt lees je in KB821929

UsernameDomain2

Ik vond een post van Robert Illing op het Citrix forum met de oplossing:

Apparently in SP1 they incorporated this hotfix – http://support.microsoft.com/?id=821929. If you look at the bottom if the hotfix it shows how windows looks at the terminal server roaming profiles.

We use \\server\username for our home drives and the \\server\username.domain caused us problems. The thing is windows will actually attempt \\server\username, but the user has to have full control on their profile. They also need to be the owner of the folder. If they are not the owner, windows will create a NEW profile for them using username.domain which created tons of profiles on our san.

There is a work around on the ownership problem. As we scripted our whole solution, and went about to go in and change ownership on thousands of profiles. If you create a GPO and go to Computer Configuration, Administrative Templates, System, User Profiles, then select “Do not check for user ownership of roaming profiles folder”. This will ignore the ownership of the profile.

So to clarify once you apply that GPO. You should be able to use \\server\username as long as the user has full control on their profile.

Op de policy met GPMC.msc en ga naar Computer Configuration – Administrative Templates – System –  User Profiles daarna enabale je de volgende optie Do not check for user ownership of roaming profiles folder

UsernameDomain

Citrix: Licensing error EventID 1028


Ik starte vandaag een oude VM op en wilde verbinding maken naar de Citrix omgeving. Dit lukte niet. Ik kreeg de onderstaande error.

License_Error

De volgende EventID werd in de eventlog weggeschreven op de terminal/citrix server.

De oplossing voor dit probleem was het verwijderen van de MSLicensing key. Dit doe je via Regedit op de client en blader dan naar de key: HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft en verwijder de key MSLicensing.

 License_Error_regedit

De oplossing kwam van Super Pippo op het Citrix forum: http://support.citrix.com/forums

Meer informatie over TSServer Licensing vind je in het volgende KB document: KB823313

Citrix: EventID 110


De volgende melding kun je terug vinden op je Citrix server. Deze melding treed op zodra je hotfix rollup pack 1 hebt geïnstalleerd.

Oplossing / Workarround

Open het bestand C:\Program Files\Citrix\XTE\conf\httpd.conf in Wordpad.

Voeg daarna de volgende text toe:

#Log Level

Als laatste herstart je de XTE service. Dit kun je via Start – Run – Services.msc doen of via het commandprompt:

net stop “Citrix XTE Server” en net start “Citrix XTE Server”

Citrix: How Policies Impact Citrix PS Environments


There are numerous ways to apply a configuration or security setting onto a group of servers within a Presentation Server environment. Because policies are so unique, diverse and customizable, there is no single, correct method toward policy design. However, this document will give the key areas to consider when deciding on the appropriate approach to implementing a setting using a policy. This design consideration will look at the following types of policies and the common practices associated with them:

  • Citrix Presentation Server policies: These policies are defined within the management console on Presentation Server and only apply to connections using the Citrix ICA protocol but not the Microsoft RDP protocol. Presentation Server policies also allow for the configuration of Presentation Server-specific options like Session Printers and Progressive Display. The power of these policies is that they have the ability to be filtered based on users, location and even the method for launching the published applications. Many of these filters are only available within Presentation Server.

  • Active Director y policies: These policies are configured within Active Directory. They are applied to organizational units (folders), domains, sites, etc. within the Active Directory structure. A single Active Director y policy can consist of a computer policy and a user policy. A computer policy consists of settings that affect the physical computer and impact all users logging onto the computer while a user policy affects the user and is applied on all system s the user logs on to. Local server policies and custom policies are type s of Active Director y policies and are described as:

  • Local Server Policies and Settings: Local Server policies are similar to Active Directory policies, except they are managed on a server-by-server basis and configured locally on that specific server, where Active Directory policies are managed centrally and can impact hundreds or thousands of users or computers with a single application of a policy.

  • Custom Active Directory Policy Templates: Custom ADM templates, like the Citrix icaclient.adm template, are Active Directory or Local Server policies used to make configuration settings. They can be custom registry settings or simply standard policies re-organized as two examples. The concept of custom templates is supported, but depending on the author of the custom template, supportability by either Citrix or Microsoft might not be available. Organizations will have to verify the supportability of custom ADM templates. Also, any custom template used might already have settings configured, potentially causing issues with the environment. It is highly recommended to test custom policies in a test environment before implementing in production.

The following five areas are the basis f or the design decisions for an enterprise deployment of Presentation Server. These types of policies will be impacted by the following design areas:

  • Policy Type

  • Policy Integration

  • Policy Filters Policy Prioritization

  • Policy Precedence

Script: Install Printer Drivers On TS/Citrix Servers


Aleks van http://www.virtualistic.nl/ heeft een script geschreven voor het installeren van Printer drivers op een Terminal / Citrix server. Ik was de gelukkige betá tester (zonder problemen) en alles werkte out of the box.

Hieronder een quote van de website van Aleks:

Prerequisites:
– You have to be able to install printdrivers (duh!)
– You have to be able to connect to your printerserver (test this through typing \\yourprintserver you should see your shared printers)
What is inside the zip file?
– The script of course!
– Addprinters.txt this is the input file for the script. Place your printers in this .txt file (eg: \\yourprintserver\printer1)
The default location of the addprinters.txt is C:\ You can change this but make sure you edit the script to reflect the new location.

Zodra je het Addprinters.txt hebt gevuld, start je het script en dan verschijnt het onderstaande scherm.

PrinterDriver_Script

Nu ben je natuurlijk benieuwd wat het script gedaan heeft. Dat laat ik zien in de onderstaande tekening:

Citrix: EventID 1106


De volgende melding kun je tegenkomen in je application log op een Citrix Server.

eventid1106

Dit kun je oplossen door de volgende registry key te importeren:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Citrix\Print]
“DefaultPrnFlags”=dword:80000000

Deze oplossing geld alleen voor Presentation Server 4 en hoger.
