There is already a lot of information about how to control your hotkeys in a XenApp session. At a customer, this still led to some confusion about when and where the config should be done.

Last week I had to troubleshoot an incident at a customer regarding a missing CC field in emails recovered from a Barracuda Message Archiver. The case was as follows. When an email recovered from Barracuda was opened, the CC field was not visible.
One of our partners is using the CSP program from Citrix for their customers. Now, every month a CSP usage report must be made manually for all the customers and reported to Citrix. With the Citrix Cloud Licensing Portal, that step is simplified. There are however a few guidelines for the Citrix Licensing servers that […]
If you want to add an admx template in RES ONE Workspace and you want to be sure you are adding a newer version it can be handy to view the properties of the admx files that are already added to the repository. There is a hidden feature in the console that allows you to […]
Last week we had a print spooler problem on a XenApp 7.6/Server 2012R2 farm. The print spooler service grew to a whopping 16GB of Memory. The problem was related to a mix of old Ricoh and Kyocera drivers. After upgrading to new drivers the problem of the spooler was resolved. But on one machine the […]

At a costumer we came across a problem with a Dell E6320 booting with pxe. It did not respond to the PXE server and therefor waited indefinetely on the boot agent screen. In the current environment (flat network) there are multiple pxe services configured, one for Citrix PVS and one for WDS.
One of the best practices when packaging with ThinApp includes verifying no processes are left running that lock the Sandbox when you shuts down the application. You can simply verify this by trying to delete the package’s Sandbox. If it is locked and you cannot delete it, some process is still running. To determine wich […]
