So I still wasn’t satisfied with the results accomplished in an earlier article. Especially with the latest version of the NetScaler the loading of the Java applets took about 1 minute. It’s easy to reduce the load time to about 20 seconds. However people might consider it a security risk.

An external party switched from certificate supplier leaving some people within our organization with a little headache. There SMS service wasn’t working anymore and they couldn’t figure out what the issue was. In the logfile they found the following error (I’ll include the whole log for indexing): unable to find valid certification path to requested target.

Error: Citrix online plug-in Configuration Manager: No value could be found for (AllowHotkey) that satisfies all lockdown requiremants. The lockdown requirements in force may be conflicting. Error 2320.

Reading the Citrix forums you will see a lot of people complaining about the NetScaler GUI. Truth is Citrix in general is not able to build some good consoles. Pick one: PVS, XenApp, XenDesktop NetScaler. There’s always something wrong with them. Anyway, the NetScaler GUI by far sucks the most. Especially the latest version NS10.0: Build 75.7.nc is a disaster. I have a few workarounds to be able to work with the GUI, but maybe the better idea is to just learn the commandline (yes, another one).

Strange one today in PowerShell modifying a RemoteApp:

med after creating a deployment. For information about creating a deployment, run “Get-Help Set-VDIDeployment” or “Get-
