Thin Clients, VDI and Linux integration from the front lines.... Raw and sometimes unedited notes based on my experiences with VMware, Thin Clients, Linux etc.

So, came across this interesting little issue:

 
So TS Licensing was held on 2, now moved to 1 and re-activated the TS Lic. Was 60 users, but MOLP showed 90, so topped it up while I had MS Clearing House on the phone, anyway, I can now get in via RDP ONLY! ICA is still blocked, yet the TS Licensing Server seems absolutely fine!
 
As per  suggestion, I've been right through the TSLicensing and that's sweet. Then I spoke to and I did recreate the ICA Listener, but I can still go and create a new Application Set - but as soon as it tries to connect it disappears......  (I can telnet on 1494 to the Citrix Servers as well......) 
 
Finally went digging through to the Clients log and found this, date and timed at a point *after* I had fixed the TS Licensing and found this:
10-17-2005  12:30:24:265 LONCITRIX1: Cannot connect to the Citrix MetaFrame server.
10-17-2005  12:30:24:265 LONCITRIX1: Protocol Driver error
 
 
So based on this I went back to the drawing board and found that *when* I could get QFARM to run (The path seems to be royally screwed up in the Environment settings with loads missing....) it was reporting back that the Server has a Load of 20000.....???
(This looks suspiciously like a server that had FR3 applied and then someone thought better of it, and tried to roll it back? that's when you always seem to get all these missing pieces from the PATH Statement!)
 
 
I've now double checked that they have the right Product Codes for their licences of XPa, fine, and now I'm just trying to get hold of a copy of DSVERIFY that will work under FR2....  I guess if there are no problems there then it will be a case of taking it up with Citrix? But then we're scheduled to rebuild this 2 server Farm on Thursday.......  
 
As old Ned Kelly (Famous Australian Bush Ranger) was reputed to have said "Life wasn't meant to be easy!"
 
So, ended up resolving this by applying an "in-place" upgrade to MPS 3.0, and upgrading the Citrix License - I hope you're having as much fun as I am?  ;-))
