Alex, the organizer, is doing his best to make people talk to each other. Everything starts at the airport! The linkedin group is the place […]

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Citrix, Microsoft

The Expert to Expert Virtualization Conference (E2EVC) was hold yesterday in Tokyo. After a great event in Sydney, I was excited to have this new experience. As already mentioned in my previous post, this conference is all about networking with peers from everywhere to talk about a global topic: virtualization. This edition was the first one in Japan and it was a real success. The different sessions were very interesting, as usual, but the better part was the discussion with […]

Director & WinRM : Sometimes size does matter!

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Citrix, Microsoft, Troubleshooting

As you may know, some features of Director rely on WinRM and you have to configure it following this article http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX125243. In large Active Directory environment, the user security token that is used to authenticate the user to the server may be larger than 16 KB. This can occur when a user is a member of many security groups. However, WinRM has a 16 KB size limit for HTTP authorization requests. Therefore, WinRM does not accept HTTP authorization requests that use […]

MSMQ / SmartAuditor non fonctionnel sous Windows 2008R2

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Citrix, Microsoft, Troubleshooting

Un « petit » bug sur le service Message Queuing (MSMQ) empêche l’enregistrement des sessions via SmartAuditor. La raison est que le service MSMQ ne se bind pas sur l’adresse IP du serveur mais sur l’adresse de loopback : Un workaround consiste à redémarrer le service MSMQ pour obtenir le bon binding : Un patch est disponible chez Microsoft (http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2554746) mais uniquement pour Vista/Windows 2008. Il faut passer un appel au support Microsoft pour obtenir la version Windows 2008 R2 ++ Sam

Echec d’installation XenApp « Utilisateur / Mot de passe ODBC incorrect »

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Citrix, Microsoft

Premier post de l’année : Bonne année à vous tous ! Un petit soucis (encore un J) lors d’une installation chez un client. L’installation de XenApp retourne une erreur. Le journal d’événement donne cette information : En fait la solution est simple (enfin, une fois qu’on la connait ;)) Le mot de passe d’une connexion ODBC ne doit pas contenir de « ; » : il est interprété comme la fin du mot de passe. La KB Microsoft à ce sujet : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/301076/en-us Et voilà J ++ Sam
