Hiding XenDesktop/XenApp applications with Netscaler rewrite

Written by admin. Posted in Citrix Access Gateway

Citrix blog announced a way to hide XenDesktop/XenApp apps on BYO devices like Android, Ipad, Windows and so on based on Netscaler rewrite filters. This can be usefull when specific apps aren’t needed to see for functional or other reasons. To visualize the communication flow, I have made a Visio drawing, see below.

IMA Helper Tool

Written by admin. Posted in Tools

Sometimes you suddenly can’t connect to a published application and/or dekstop on XenApp. After investigation you notice that the IMA (Independement Management Architecture) service isn’t running and won’t restart anymore. The tool which can help then is IMA Helper from Citrix.
With this tool you can:

  • Recreate Local Host Cache;
  • Recreate DSN file;
  • Check IMA service state.

The name says it, with this app you can connect to Citrix published apps/desktops and create your own ICA files.
You can use the generated ICA file(s) to present apps to:

  • The startmenu of the user with or without RES tooling such as Workspace Manager (formally known as Powerfuse);
  • Desktop of the user with or without RES tooling such as Workspace Manager (formally known as Powerfuse);
  • Another XenApp farm with SSO (Single Sign On) capability;
  • Silo with SSO (Single Sign On) capability.
