Citrix Receiver 4.6 printing issues

Hello everybody,

I recently had the experience that the Citrix Receiver 4.6 makes problems when printing with mapped printers ….

The printer is mapped correctly into the Citrix session and can be used “in principle” properly.
But if a print in transverse format was commissioned, the whole was printed in portrait format, but in the transverse format. So the text was cross-printed … which was not very optimal :-). Of course, the first guess was that the printer driver did not work properly and had tried to define the printer driver to be used by Citrix policy … unfortunately, this did not lead to any improvement.

Uninstall the Citrix Receiver and install the Citrix Receiver with version 4.5, then everything worked like it should …
Did you already have such a phenomenon?

Bose Soundtouch 30 vs. Sonos Play:3

Hello everybody,

I recently decided to set up a multiroom sound system in my office and maybe later in the bathroom or in the bedroom. Through a few analyzes of what is currently on the market, I found the following two devices, which I have found suitable for my purposes:

  • Bose Soundtouch
  • 30 Sonos Play 3

I may have to mention that I had both tested (not wanted), but returned one of the products. Find out more …

Migration of XenApp 6.5 to XenApp 7.x – Startmenu duplicated folders

Problem Description
When migrating the apps from XenApp 6.5 to XenApp 7.x, all applications have an entry in the “StartmenuFolder”.
This can be checked by the following Powershell command:

Asnp Citrix*

This unfortunately causes the folders to appear partially duplicated, because newly added applications do not receive this entry.

To solve this, the old entries must be emptied.
This is achieved with the following Powershell command:
Get-BrokerApplication | ForEach-Object {Set-BrokerApplication $_ -StartMenuFolder «»}

Do you have also such issues with the migration of XenApp 6.5 to XenApp 7.x?

Netscaler with Exchange 2016 OWA – Logoff Issue

Hello everybody,

Recently I was able to collect a new experience with the NetScaler (v. 11) and Exchange 2016 OWA.

Pre-Authentication at NetScaler enabled / OWA Exchange 2016

Problem Description:
A user successfully logs on to NetScaler (Pre-Auth) and will be automatically redirected to the OWA site, where the countless messages are displayed.
the user wants to log out now by logoff button in OWA, nothing happens. Only through a page refresh (F5) is again shown the NetScaler Logo site.

When you press the logoff button, a number of chunks is generated for the cancellation. These requests take the form of HTTP1.1 Protocol. (Focus on the version)

Through an analysis of Citrix, the problem could be solved.
In order for these chunks do not get in this version for NetScaler and lead to difficulties, a rewrite Policy on the NetScaler is created which changes the HTTP version of 1.1 to 1.0.
Here is the command for the configuration.

add rewrite action logoffIssue replace http.req.version “\” HTTP / 1.0 \ “”
add rewrite policy logoffIssue_pol true logoffIssue
bind rewrite global logoffIssue_pol 10 NEXT -type REQ_DEFAULT
