StoreFront Launcher PowerShell script

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Citrix

I’ve announced it during E2EVC in Sydney: I’ve started a new project on GitHub! This project is based on a PowerShell script running on a client device. Instead of providing the URl of the StoreFront server to the user, you ask them to launch a shortcut to this script. It’ll verify the availability of every URl you have provided in a CSV file and launch the first answering site with the default browser. It’s useful for: Managing a High Availability […]

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Citrix

Like already said in a previous post, I’m very interested on this new feature in XenApp/XenDesktop 7.12. I’ve learned a bit more about it so here are my new inputs! First step: Create a tag!

Second step: Configure Machine Tag Restriction In order to configure Machine Tag Restriction, you need to limit a desktop (or a published application) to a specific […]

XenDesktop 7.12 – Machine tag restrictions

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Citrix

I’ve been working on some large Xendesktop 7.x deployments up to 40 000 users and one of the main issue encountered with those large infrastructures was the lack of agility of the Delivery Groups. For example, one of them wanted to control its rollout applicative upgrades to production: First send the upgrade to some alpha users Start the rollout with a small part of the users Continue with half of the users End the rollout In order to accomplish this, […]

How to become a myCUGC leader!

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Citrix

Last Wednesday it was the first event of the French Citrix User Group Community. If I trust the different feedbacks, everyone enjoyed and asked for a new one: we are working on it! What I’d like to share here is my experience: becoming a “myCUGC” leader for the French group behind the scenes. We have been talking about creating something in France since almost the beginning of the CUGC program in May 2015. Talking is easy, implementing is another thing! […]

Retrieve admin rights on a XenDesktop site

Posted Leave a commentPosted in Citrix, Troubleshooting

During a site upgrade I forgot to add my admin account in the “Full Administrator” role… Before rolling back to the previous version, I’ve performed some tests and here is the result: Connect to SQL Server Retrieve an account with the correct role through the SQL query: SELECT Administrators.Sid FROM [DAS].[Rights] as Rights, [DAS].[Administrators] as Administrators, [DAS].[Roles] as Roles Where Rights.AdminId = Administrators.Id and Rights.RoleId = Roles.Id and Roles.Name = ‘Full Administrator’ Modify the SID find with the previous query or create a […]
