One of the changes precipitated by the latest Windows 10 version, the Creators’ Update, is that this version (1703) will be the last version that fits into what we knew as the Current Branch/Current Branch for Business model. The first thing that’s going to change is that the “branches” nomenclature is going to change. We […]
Recently I did some work in an environment where users had been migrated from a thin-client environment where they used hosted applications through Citrix Storefront, onto a Windows 10 fat-client environment with a number of their applications locally-installed. The challenge we faced was getting users to use the local copies of applications rather than the […]

Just a quick post today because I’ve recently re-encountered an error I first had a run-in with back in 2011. I’ve seen it happen a number of times and it does seem to occur in environments where profile management tools are in use more than others, but I really can’t speculate on the actual root […]
I.T. community has always been a hugely important part of the information technology industry. In an industry where solutions can be engineered in myriad different ways, using a subset of software from many different vendors, having a healthy and thriving community where people share ideas, techniques and guides is absolutely vital. The I.T. community is […]

I made the point in an earlier article that printing can often be the 64,000-pound gorilla in the room. But if recent experience is anything to go by, there’s still a long way to come before Citrix architects, consultants and administrators catch up with this. Printing, compared to the blue-screening, spooler crashing days of years […]
I’ve had some email comments recently regarding Skype For Business 2016 with mandatory profiles. When you use Skype for Business and log in for the first time, it needs to install a personal certificate into the user profile. As those of you who have used mandatory profiles before will know, personal certificates can’t be used […]
So, just a quick post to document an issue we experienced recently regarding service failures on boot, without any errors being logged, on Citrix XenApp servers. The problem manifested itself, in this instance, on PVS targets running XenApp 6.5, although it can be replicated on other XenApp versions as well (and may well affect XenDesktop […]
Forcing users to execute XenApp applications on specific sets of servers is something you might want to do for a number of reasons. In my case, I primarily run into this requirement during phased migrations, but there are many situations that may push you towards it. Often I do projects where components or software within […]
Happy New Year all, it’s good to be back at work and have so many things lined up to blog about in 2018! Where shall we start? Well, let’s take a dive into the minefield that is per-device software licensing on XenApp or RDSH. Per-device licensing model – the background For a long time, XenApp […]

Just a quick one for starters today (as I have a bunch of stuff I want to get out there). However, I want to quickly run through a problem I had over the last few days with the latest iteration of Windows 10. Everyone (hopefully!) knows what UWP applications are – Universal Windows Platform apps […]

I came across a problem recently where users were having problems opening links to certain SharePoint sites from within a Citrix XenApp environment. For some reason, the XenApp hosted sessions were asking for authentication when hitting the SharePoint front end. Whilst this certainly indicated some sort of misconfiguration within the environment itself – client desktop […]
One of the key areas I am concentrating on for 2018 is automation. With the advent of hybrid cloud services that mix traditional on-premises infrastructure with SaaS, IaaS and PaaS, it is critically important that we avoid an unsustainable rise in administrative tasks by doing as much automation as possible. Hopefully, I’m going to write […]

I recently upgraded my lab environment from XenApp 7.12 to 7.17. As part of this process, I also upgraded the Provisioning Server infrastructure to 7.17 as well. The upgrade appeared to go through without any issues. The only deviation in my configuration from standard was that I used an AD account for the PVS services […]
With the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) entered into force on the 24th of May 2016 and will be applied to all EU Member States on the 25th of May 2018, this has given organisations only one year to prepare for compliance, and now only a matter of weeks left to prepare. Only one in […]
