XenDesktop 7.x VDA on Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.9 will not launch session

by Stan Czerno December 17, 2017 08:36 CST
I recently stood up a few Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.9 VMs for use with XenDesktop 7.x. The VDA setup went fine, the VM registered fine, but the connection would fail. A quick look in the messages log showed that the CDM Redirector could not start. [More]

Fix Unknown Power State for vmWare hosted VMs in XenDesktop 7.x

Recently we had an air conditioner failure in our Server Room, which made the server room's temperature rise. Because of this, the shared storage and other servers automatically shutdown due to high heat conditions, which had an adverse affect on many VMs. [More]

Powershell Script to correct or restart a XenDesktop 7.x Workstation VM if unregistered or if a launch error is detected.

by Stan Czerno September 1, 2017 16:43 CST
If you are like me and have Static, non-PVS, XenDesktop Workstation VMs that occasionally do not register, for whatever reason, I have a script for you. If you have Static, non-PVS, XenDesktop Workstation VMs that sometimes fail to launch, for whatever reason and your users do not get the "restart" feature or perhaps the restart feature doesn't always work, I have a script for you. If you do not have any Static VMs or any of these issues, I envy you. [More]

Powershell Script to launch one or more Published Applications from Storefront 2.x

by Stan Czerno February 1, 2015 09:36 CST
In a previous post, I shared a PowerShell script to launch a Published App from one or more servers. I originally wrote this script because one of my lab XenApp 6.5 servers would not launch a Published Application. When I investigated what the issue was I was unable to determine the cause. The IMA Service was started, ICA was listening and responding, there was no load issues, etc, etc. This server was basically healthy. [More]

To make Storefront redirect to a different page rather than just sit at the "You have logged off successfully" page, edit the "custom.wrstrings.en.js" file in the contrib folder of the Web Store. [More]

Powershell Script to monitor a Citrix XenApp Farm's Health

by Stan Czerno June 12, 2014 10:06 CST
In a previous post I had mentioned my "homegrown monitoring service" so today I thought I would elaborate and share it.

While looking for some sort of monitoring script for XenApp, I found an excellent script written by Jason Poyner, XenApp Farm Health Report, http://deptive.co.nz/xenapp-farm-health-report/.

His script does a Health Check and emails an HTML report. The script checks just about everything concerning a XenApp Farm. [More]
