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.
Some people just want ICA only access for their users via their NetScalers and thats great and pretty simple to do, however if you want ICA and Full VPN then you have to enable client choices to allow the user to choose the type of access they want. Again this is pretty simple to achieve however, it will also enable ClientLess access as a choice for the user. What if you don’t want this as an option.
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.
