•Set the SMA  Service to Manual and restart it, once the service started.

Stop IMA service (Kill both IMASRV and IMAAdvanceSRV) and SMA services (SmaService).
Run “dsmaint recreatelhc”
Start IMA service and then SMA service.

If you have yet to install the Microsoft fix—MS17-010— you should do so immediately. You should also be extremely suspicious of all e-mails you receive, particularly those that ask the recipient to open attached documents or click on Web links.

 

To obtain these patches, simply go to http://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Search.aspx and punch in the KB number in the Search bar on the top right hand corner, then choose the update for the relevant architecture.

Posted by paris on Jun 18, 2017 in Research

After the restart of a Citrix Netscaler , our SNMP monitoring was coming back with high Second Round Trip times locally for the NetScaller of 1 – 4 Seconds. Logging in and checking the settings looked good.

In the end a reboot fixed this!

Seeing Session Clashes on your foritgate? 

Double check there are no errors for  NAT port exhaustion

If you are running from multiple connections try disabling the backup line as this could of been setup incorrectly by the ISP in a Active Active connection instead of Active Passive Connection
