A common practice when setting up Load Balancers and creating highly available services is the need to have a keep alive test to ensure the service is up and running well. In the world of Citrix NetScalers and high availability this practice does not always suit. The reason behind this is that the NetScaler will respond to ICMP echo requests on behalf of the vIP in the event that all the back end services are down unless you specifically specify otherwise. To resolve this follow these steps.
Some of you may have come across the issue where your End Point Analysis scans are not running when you apply the Symphony Theme or a custom theme to your NetScaler Gateway. Below if the process you will need to follow to fix this issue.
Was upgrading the NetScalers from 10.1 to 10.5 and came across a bug that will be useful to know about.
Most people will customize the NetScaler Gateway interface to suit there customers needs. Back in the good old days this could be done using the rc.netscaler file on boot but not you have to create a tar file and ns_gui_custom folders. Quite a bit more work but will persist during reboots.
I was getting Office 2013 sequenced using AppV 5 sp2 today and after following the Microsoft guide, publishing the application to the Citrix XenApp estate it was time to test. All was looking good initially then I took the app out of full screen mode, there was a big blue border round all of the applications. So, the fix…
I have been working with a colleague on implementing a highly available mobile solution. Whilst there are a number of different options to achieve this this article will focus on setting up the load balancing for the public facing URL’s used with MobileIron.
You will still need to set up your MobileIron VSP’s to replicate and sync
There is not many step by step guides out there on setting it all up with images and explanations so I thought I would write a guide on setting it up. Hopefully this should help some of you out there
Most people running a Citrix environment will have a NetScaler sitting somewhere on the estate so I started to take a look at the NetScaler DataStream functionality hoping this would provide the answer, and it did!
The following article will provide a good way to deliver session printers to thin clients without having to add any print drivers to the XenApp Servers or XenDesktop Base Image.
I was working on a XenMobile MDM Pilot and whilst working on it Citrix released a patch to enable SSL Offload at the NetScaler for MDM traffic.
I was building a Citrix XenMobile and AppController Poc for a demo and came across an issue when presenting the entire solution externally via a single IP address. Normally you…
