SMA Service Stucking on Starting on Citrix 2003 Server

Posted by paris on Jul 18, 2017 in Research

Resolution 1:

Active folder would be missing. Copy the Active folder ”C:\Program Files\Citrix\SMA\Active” from another server and then start the service.

Resolution 2:

To resolve the preceding issue, complete the following procedure:

•Stop the SmaService.exe service by using the Task Manager.
•Citrix SMA Service Properties and under the Log on tab, select Local System Account.
•Set the SMA  Service to Manual and restart it, once the service started.
•Change Citrix SMA Service Properties and under the Log on tab, select Local Service Account.
•Set the SMA  Service to Automatic and restart it.

Resolution 3.

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

Citrix Server running out of Disk space then clearing

Posted by paris on Jun 15, 2017 in Fixes

Recently had a Citrix server start to pulse on Disk Space useage in Monitoring where it would use 25 Gig’s in an hour then clear which brought up waves on the disk usage monitoring. The good news was that it was happening every hour so easily trackable in realtime.

I used performance monitor to check what the top process was that was writing to disk which was System … which did not help

Then I checked the folder, that System process was writing to the most, which picked up to be this single file : 

C:\Windows\System32\LogFiles\UserProfileManager\%domain.local%#%servername%_pm_config

Checking this file and it was 20 Gigabytes which would be the largest Config File I have ever seen!

I restart the Citrix Profile Management Service which dropped the File back down to 378kb and stopped the excessive disk writes/useage!

Check the STA settings on the Netscaler

  1. Configuration tab, in the navigation pane, expand NetScaler Gatewayand then click Virtual Servers.
  2. In the details pane, select a virtual server and then click Open.
  3. On the Published Applications tab, under Secure Ticket Authority, click Add.

    1. This will be http://datacollector or ip
  5. Repeat Step 4 to add additional STA servers and then click OK in the Configure NetScaler Gateway Virtual Server dialog box.

How to renew SSL Certificate on Secure Citrix Gateway

Posted by paris on May 26, 2016 in Random

citrixiconRecently I went through this to update a Cert on a Gatewat: http://fixmyitsystem.com/2012/07/configure-citrix-xenapp-web-site-to-use.html

However the SSL certificate was still not updated

If you route traffic over a different port you need to run through this as well : 

Start , All Programs , Citrix , Administraion Tools , Secure Gateway Configuration Wizard

Choose Next and Standard

Pick your new Cert

Leave the rest of the options as default

Outlook Crashing on Copying and Pasting in Citrix

Posted by paris on Jun 16, 2015 in Random

Seems to be on Citrix 4.2 reciever as well :

  • On an affected client PC, run REGEDIT
  • Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Citrix\ICA Client\Engine\Configuration\Advanced\Modules\WFClient (64-bit PC assumed) – HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Citrix\ICA Client\Engine\Configuration\Advanced\Modules\WFClient ( 32bit )
  • Create a new REG_SZ value and name it CbChainInterval
  • Open the newly created value and enter the value as 1000

The values accepted are from 0 to 2000 inclusive and is in milliseconds. I would suggest starting with a value of 500. If this doesn’t work then try with a lower value 400 and so on until resolution.

You need to note that detection of changes will take at least double the value addressed above.

How to enable Citrix Xen App Local app Access

Posted by paris on Jan 7, 2015 in Random

and_receiver_h24bit_512If you would like to access your local applications from inside a Citrix XenApp server you will need to do the following :

Install the Citrix Reciever with these parameters : CitrixReceiverEnterprise.exe ALLOW_CLIENTHOSTEDAPPSSHORTCUTS=1 ALLOW_URLREDIRECTION=1

Set the following registry Value
HKCU\Software\Citrix\ICA Client\Engine\Lockdown Profiles\All Regions\Lockdown\Virtual Channels\Control\ClientHostedAppsShortcuts = TRUE

Modify the ICA file to the server to add the following line under the server heading e.g.

[melxatest344F]
ClientHostedAppsShortcuts=1
Address=x.x.x.x:1494
AudioBandwidthLimit=0
AutologonAllowed=ON
BrowserProtocol=HTTPonTCP
CGPAddress=*:2598
ClientAudio=On
ConnectionBar=1
DesiredColor=8

Once enabled you will have a Local Program Folder appear in your Citrix Xen App Session

Add License failed: The license is not an upgrade license which is required since a base license is already installed

Posted by paris on Oct 6, 2014 in Research

Repeater8540_FrontWtop_HR_512Upgrading a Citrix branch repeater ( Now called CloudBridge)  to the latest firmware requires the License currently installed to be in date and under maintenance. If you renew your Citrix Maintenance you need to re-download all your licenses and reupload them to the branch repeater before it accepts the new firmware file.

Upon reuploading one of the new License file to a branch repeater I was given the error

Add License failed: The license is not an upgrade license which is required since a base license is already installed

This required me to delete the current license from the Citrix Branch Repeater ( Warning this will disconnect accelerated connections so make sure you do this out of production hours ) and reupload the license.

Citrix Local Read and Write Settings Group Policy

Posted by paris on Dec 17, 2013 in Random

As per the Citrix Article , install the ADM files , however per the article you need to deploy the reg file’s to specific 32bit/64bit machinescitrixreadandwritesettings

http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX133565

Microsoft is slowly moving against login scripts , so the reg file with 100+ Keys needs to be deployed using the registry deployment in group policy. Rather than create these manually , you can convert the reg files to XML using this great tool : http://www.runecasters.com.au/reg2gpp

Once converted , just right click on the xml file and copy , then right click into a collection in the group policy editor and click paste

32bit XML : https://mega.co.nz/#!fFYCXJJS!BFq3Kyos8X6eVag1PvCxnlwigA4RxNV4hi2ANy75dtY

64bit XML : https://mega.co.nz/#!7QRQwRDB!ffUh5UG8vCFPd91qsGgc9QFj5g4hQVNsfPdhL5Ry4gY
