This product is using an evaluation license for Citrix Xenapp

This product is using an evaluation license for Citrix Xenapp

After running a small Xenapp farm of 8 servers with an evaluation license, retail licenses were added to the license server. The evaluation license file was removed as part of the proper procedure and the license services were restarted. The license server was even rebooted. Regular domain users were no longer receiving the message that the Xenapp server is using an evaluation license but the domain administrator was still getting the message even when using RDP to connect to the Xenapp server or when using the receiver.
The solution for this is quite simple. Check your licnese server to ensure the reatil licenses are showing and that the evaluation licenses are no longer displayed. Then remote into each of the Xenapp servers and stop the IMA service (only the ima service) . Current connections to the server will not be lost after the service is stopped, there will not be any new connections. With the IMA service stopped, open a command prompt and run the following command dsmaint recreatelhc . The next line should read the command ran successfully. Start the IMA service .
Now try to login using the receiver from another computer or RDP to the server. The message should have gone away, it did for me except from one server which needed to be rebooted.

Citrix Xenapp 6 and Xenapp Fundamentals -Terminal Server Listener Stack Was Down. System Cannot Find the File Specified.

xenapp fundamentals windows 2008 r2

Xenapp Fundamentals – Citrix Xenapp – Windows 2008 RDS (Terminal Server)

The relevant status code was: System cannot find the file specified. Terminal Server listener stack was down.

I did not find this solution in any of the documentation and although I had called in for support from Citrix, this was not unfortunately one of the things they looked for while trying to determine the cause of the error. I’m sure others will find this useful even if they are not useing Citrix Xenapp. This was a Microsoft problem, not a Citrix Xenpp problem.

 Event ID 1035

After checking with event viewer the system log and the application log, the following error was entered at the time of the installation failure.

Terminal Server listener stack was down. The relevant status code was: System cannot find the file specified .  Event ID 1035

Citrix Xenapp 6, Xenapp 6 Fundamentals 2008 R2 RDS

This occured during the installation of Citrix Xenapp Fundamentals on Windows 2008 R2. This error was preventign the applciation from istalling. This error can occur on a serve rthat does not have xenapp installed or during the install of xenapp. As this error is purely a terminal server Microsoft RDS issue. So users of RDS on 2008 R2 who experience this issue can try the solution used for a Citrix Xenapp install.

Terminal Server listener stack was down

This was an installation of Xenapp Fundamentals editions on Windows 2008 R2 server. Xenapp would not install on Windows 2008 R2 RDS (Terminal Server) .

For those of you who perhaps only have an RDS installation that is giving you this error message the solution does not change form those of you who may be experiencing xenapp installation issues due to the “Terminal Server listener stack is down” error.

Terminal Server Listener Not Available

Windows 2008 R2 RDS: The final thing that I was able to do to get pas this error and finallly install Xenapp on Windows 2008 server was to add the Xenapp server into the Terminal Server group on the local server. The other thing I did, although it is asl onot required but if you have a large environement you may have already configurd it this way, is to define the license server and not use discovery. Listing the license server may not have contributed to the “stack down” error but it is on of the lat things that were chanegd prior to the installation finally completing.

One of the differences, and there are many, between windows 2003 server and windows 2008 server  (including windows 2008 R2) when using these operating systems for RDS (terminal services) with or without Citrix Xenapp is that file associations and default programs for opening or in the case of this post viewing files has changed.

The change is from an administrator having the ability to set a default program or file association once by logging to a server as an administrator and setting for example adobe pdf file be opened by reader or adobe acrobat while logged in as an administrator and that setting will apply to all users who connect to the server via terminal server RDP.RDS or through Citrix xenapp through a published app.

With windows 2008 server and windows 2008 R2, this setting is per user. That means each user can have a unique setting or different user groups can have different settings from each other.

Information Technology Support – Adventure (Rated PG): Disable Session Reliability in XenApp 6

Information Technology Support – Adventure (Rated PG): Disable Session Reliability in XenApp 6.

There are times when session reliability hasto be disabled in Xenapp. The name of this feature can be misleading in a sense that one can assume from the name that “they need it”. Yes, the words session reliability is one that conjures up images of with out it “my session won’t be relaible”. Oh, how that is not the case.

Session reliability in Citrix Xenapp world of things has to do with how long a disconnected session stays active and also what the end-user will experience during that short, or long, interuption. Session reliability in Citrix Xenapp means that when a session is disconnected, the user will still see the image pof their published applciation as it was before they were disconnected. However, they cannot interact with that session.

I needed to disable session relaibility because this setting was interfereing with my disconnected or idle sessions.

This is not the usual file association settings that can be accomplished on just about every Microsoft Windows operating system version. Although this solution can be used on windows 7 desktop or windows XP, the solution is more geared to a multi-user environment like terminal server, RDS (remote desktop server), with or without citrix xenapp.

With windows server 2008 RDS (terminal server) file associations changed in that an administrator can;t simply logon to the windows 2008 or windows 2008 R2 server and set a file associations and it will apply to all users who login to the server automatically. File association and also what program/application starts up for associated files is per user not per server.
