I have updated my script for testing Citrix Storefront or Netscaler and Storefront. The previous versions can be found here and here. I have modified the script so it handles errors better as well as added support for Storefront 3.6 and Netscaler 11.x. [More]

Powershell Script to launch one or more Published Applications from Storefront 2.x and 3

by Stan Czerno September 8, 2015 10:38 CST
Since Citrix has released version 3 of Storefront, I needed to make an update to my original script, found here, to make it work with the latest Storefront release. I decided to make a few more modifications as well to provide more info. [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]

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]

How to get the Citrix Receiver for Windows 4.1 to work with XenApp 4 for UNIX

by Stan Czerno June 11, 2014 13:06 CST
I still support an old XenApp 4 for UNIX Farm. Any Citrix Client over version 12.1.44.1 does not work correctly. The App loads but does not draw the screen correctly, leaving the app seemed either greyed out or just blue. [More]

Powershell Script to launch a Published Application from one or more XenApp Servers

by Stan Czerno June 11, 2014 09:06 CST
Two weeks ago I had a server in my lab that would not launch an application. The event log had event 10001 listed and it read "A usable server cannot be found on which to launch the application...".

So I checked out my homegrown monitoring service (which I will blog about later on) and everything was fine. The User Load was 0, the ICA port was listening and responding correctly, the XML service was running, etc. etc., but nothing would launch. This server has been running fine for more than two years.

Application and User Usage Database and Reports for XenApp 6.5

by Stan Czerno March 5, 2014 10:37 CST
I like the concept of EdgeSight but it is a beast to maintain and I rarely use the Performance Metrics. What I use most often is Application Usage reports.

I loved using the old Resource Manager for creating Application and/or User Usage reports. I miss that basic function since I have been using XenApp 6.x for a few years now. EdgeSight was supposed to give me this but it does not since I am at the Enterprise Licensing tier for XenApp. [More]
