Storefront Load balancing using NetScaler

It’s been a while since I wrote on my blog so let’s get straight into the post without much mucking around. This time we will discuss how to go about setting up Storefront load balancing using NetScalers. This can be configured on a standalone NetScaler or a NetScaler pair in HA. The recommendation is obviously to get this setup on a HA NetScaler pair so that NetScaler outage wouldn’t result in Storefront also being unavailable.

My Storefront version is 3.11 and have a cluster with 2 Storefront servers. NetScaler version is 11.1 but the NS version shouldn’t matter much as the steps would be more or less the same for other NetScaler firmware versions – newer or older. (unless you are too far behind)


To configure Storefront load balancing we need the following –

  • 2 or more Storefront servers
  • an IP address for the virtual server that hosts the LB configuration
  • SSL certificate that points to the intended load balanced URL of Storefront – the certificate can be a wild card or a named certificate

First Things First

Logon to your NetScaler and navigate to System — Settings — Configure Basic Features. Ensure that Load Balancing is selected, if not select it and click OK


NetScaler Configuration

Create Servers

Now, navigate to Traffic Management — Load Balancing — Servers. Click Add


Give the Storefront server a name and enter the IP address of the server. Ensure that “Enable after creating” is selected. Click Create

Add the second Storefront server following the above steps. If you have more than 2  servers, add all of them.


Create Monitors

New NetScaler version come with a built-in Storefront monitor so we are going to make use of it here. Go to Traffic Management –Load Balancing — Monitors and click Add

Here I am only going to create a single monitor to probe all my Storefront servers. You can choose to create multiple monitors depending upon the number of Storefront servers that you have. In my case, i will create just one.

Give a name to the monitor and select the type as STOREFRONT


Now select Special Parameters tab and provide the name of the Store that you have created in Storefront. Check the 2 entries – Storefront Account Service and Check Back End Services. 


Click on the Standard Parameters tab. Ensure that Secure is selected as below. Click Create


Create Service Groups

Go to Traffic Management –Load Balancing — Service Groups

Give a name to the service group and select the protocol as SSL. Check the entries below

  • State
  • Health Monitoring
  • AppFlow Logging (only if you have NetScaler MAS in your environment)

Click OK


Under Service Group Members, add the server entities that we created earlier. Once done, they will look like the below


Under Settings, type the Header as X-Forwarded-For


Under Monitors, bind the monitor that we created before


Under SSL Parameters, setup the settings as below


Under Ciphers, setup the ciphers based on your company security policy.


Once done, Service Group for Storefront should look like this


Now, it’s time to create the Virtual Server

Virtual Server

As mentioned in the pre-requisites section , we need an IP address for this. If the NetScalers are sitting in the DMZ, a DMZ IP address is required. In my case, NetScalers are hosted internally so i will use an internal unused IP address.

We will also need the SSL certificate here.

Go to Traffic Management –Load Balancing — Virtual Servers

Click Add

Give a Name to the virtual server and select the protocol as SSL

Specify the IP address under IP Address field and specify the port # as 443


Click More and specify the settings as below (note, that AppFlow logging only needs to be enabled if you have a NetScaler MAS setup or other monitoring solutions that could make use of AppFlow logs)



Under Services and Service Groups, click on Load Balancing Virtual Server ServiceGroup Binding

Click Add Binding and select the Service Group that you created in the previous step. Click OK

Once completed, the page should look like the below. Click Close and click Done


It’s time to attach the certificate. Go to Traffic Management — SSL — Manage Certificates / Keys / CSRs



Click on Upload button and upload your certificate file to NetScaler

Go to Traffic Management — SSL — Certificates — Server certificates

Under Certificate, click on Server Certificate and then Install

Give a certificate key-pair name and choose the certificate that was just uploaded in the previous step. Click Install

Now, go back to Traffic Management –Load Balancing — Virtual Servers

Select the Virtual server created for Storefront and click Edit. Under Certificates, select Server Certificate and then Click Add Binding

Under SSL Ciphers, select the ciphers that you would like to be in place. I am going with the default one. This is not the most secure for a production setup so go with something that’s secure enough for your organization.

Under SSL Parameters, configure the settings as below. Click OK


Under Method, Select LEASTRESPONSETIME for the Load Balancing Method. Configure a Backup LB Method, I choose LEAST CONNECTION

You can read more about the LB Methods here


Click OK

Under Persistence, select COOKIEINSERT for Persistence with a time-out value of 0. You can also read why I selected the timeout value of 0 here

Under Backup persistence, select SOURCEIP with a timeout of 60. Fill in the Netmask as in the picture


Click OK and then Done

We have now completed almost 90% of the config. There are a couple of things left so hold on tight.

The configuration so far will ensure that load balancing will be performed between the Storefront servers ( I know, i know I haven’t setup the DNS entries for the load balanced VIP)

If someone type in the http URL of LB Storefront in their browser, it will not go anywhere. It will show them the IIS page instead. So how do we ensure that the users are redirected to the correct Storefront page (https version) every single time? We will setup another virtual server on port 80 with a redirect URL configured.

Let’s do that now.

Under Traffic Management –Load Balancing — Virtual Servers, Click Add

Under Basic Settings, give the virtual server a Name and select protocol as HTTP

Specify the same IP address as for the Storefront LB VIP and provide 80 for the Port #

Click OK/Create

Under Persistence, select SOURCEIP with a timeout of 2 mins


Click OK

Under Protection, type in the correct HTTPS URL that you would want the users to be redirected to under Redirect URL field


Click OK. Then click Done

You will notice that the virtual server will be marked as down


DNS Changes

Now head over to the DNS server and open the DNS Console

Create an A record pointing to the Storefront LB name with the IP address configured on the vServer for LB configuration.

Storefront Changes

This is the last step, I promise. Head over to the Storefront servers and it’s time now to run some Powershell commands

Now, the monitors that we created earlier will be marked as Down if we didn’t perform this step prior to creating them on the NetScaler. That’s because the monitor created was based on HTTPS and by default, Storefront monitoring is done on HTTP

To change this to HTTPS. We need to configure the monitor service to use HTTPS instead. On all the StoreFront 3.0 servers perform the following steps.

Run PowerShell as an administrator.

Navigate to the Scripts (C:\Program Files\Citrix\Receiver StoreFront\Scripts) folder via the Powershell on the Storefront server,

Run ImportModules.ps1


Run the below command



Now, type the below to setup the Storefront Monitor on HTTPS

Set-DSServiceMonitorFeature -ServiceURL https://localhost:443/StoreFrontMonitor


Repeat the above steps on all the Storefront servers.

Now, head back to the NetScaler and you can see that the monitor will be in GREEN and showing a status of UP

That’s all we need to do to setup Storefront load balancing using NetScalers.





Don’t let your user-experience be a “Spectre” of itself after “Meltdown”

Bust your ghosts not your user experience

The names Spectre and Meltdown invoke feelings of dread in even the most seasoned IT engineer.  To those uninitiated, let me get you up-to-speed quickly.

Spectre is a vulnerability that takes advantage of “Intel Privilege Escalation and Speculative Execution”, and exposes user memory of an application to another malicious application.  This can expose data such as passwords.

Meltdown is a vulnerability that takes advantage of “Branch prediction and Speculative Execution”, and exposes kernel memory.  A compromised server or client OS running virtualized could gain access to kernel memory of the host exposing all guest data.

Both vulnerabilities take advantage of a 20-year-old method of increasing processor performance.


As a result, code will need to be updated to address these vulnerabilities at OS and OEM-manufacturer levels, at the expense of system performance.

On their part, Microsoft reluctantly admits that performance will suffer.  “Windows Server on any silicon, especially in any IO-intensive application, shows a more significant performance impact when you enable the mitigations to isolate untrusted code within a Windows Server instance,” wrote Terry Myerson, Executive Vice President for the Windows and Devices group.

According to Geek Wire, these two vulnerabilities which take advantage of a 20-year-old design flaw in modern processors can be “mitigated;” the word we’re apparently using to describe this new world in 2018, in which servers lose roughly 10 to 20% performance for several common workloads.

This affects not only workloads executed against local, on-site resources but even those utilizing services, such as AWS, Google Public Cloud or Azure.

cpu_utilReader submission @ The Register showing CPU before / after patches

We’ve heard from some of our insiders who use Login VSI to validate system performance that they’re seeing a reduction of 5% in user-density after performing Microsoft recommendations. Knowing that the vulnerability wasn’t solved by OS updates alone we, at Login VSI, wanted the ability to test the impending hardware vendor firmware / BIOS changes.

Now is the time to capture your baseline performance

How do you know how much of an impact the fixes for Spectre and Meltdown will be if you don’t have anything to compare it to? Keep in mind that these patches will need to be installed on a number of systems in your solution including server hardware, operating systems, storage subsystems and so on.

Many of our customers perform tests where they compare a known good solution, or a baseline, with changes that have been made. This gives them the ability to accurately assess the performance impact of that change, which in turn allows them to compensate with more hardware, or further tuning of the applications and OS. The patented methods used by Login VSI provide a quantifiable result for determining the impact of a change in virtual desktop and published application environments.

Using Login VSI

If you wish to test the changes before pushing them into your production environment, then use Login VSI to put a load, representative of your production users, on the system. This will objectively show how much more CPU will be used as a result of the Spectre or Meltdown patches. It is expected that the end users will incur increased latency to their applications and desktops as a result of the higher CPU utilization.

Using Login PI

While it is not recommended, if you are planning on pushing the patches into your production environment to “see how it goes”, then install Login PI now to get an accurate representation of performance related to user experience. This will give you the ability to then compare to that same experience after the patches have been installed. We expect that you will see latency to the end user increase as a result of higher CPU utilization. If you already struggle with CPU utilization in your solution, there is a good chance you’ll be also using Login PI to test your availability.

As we complete our testing we will be sharing our findings in a series of articles.

If your computer has a vulnerable processor and runs an unpatched operating system, it is NOT SAFE TO WORK WITH SENSITIVE INFORMATION”. – Security Experts who discovered Meltdown / Spectre 

If sensitive data is part of your business (Such as ours!) patching is not a matter of if, but when.

Ask yourself:

How long can you afford to have your company’s data exposed to malicious intent?  Do you want to be the next Equifax or Target?

In this article series, we will provide some insight from our lab environments. Be aware your results may vary based upon individual workload and configuration.

Microsoft has released a Security Advisory

The vulnerability affects both the client and server OSs of Windows.  This is compounded when dealing with large-scale published application and desktops deployments.  The advisor can be found at the following location:

The specific details addressed in the security update and Windows KB are outlined in the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures database.

Included are:

To completely protect yourself there are two phases of patching this vulnerability.

1 – Windows OS updates

2 – OEM device manufacturer firmware updates (not yet available)

Microsoft acknowledges addressing these vulnerabilities from a software perspective is limited, and therefore, without the OEMs providing updates the loop is not closed.

In the interim we can start measuring the impact of the Microsoft fixes.

They offer guidance for both Desktop and Server OSs:

Desktop –  January 2018 Security Update. Security Advisory: Click Here!

Server –  KB405690. Security Advisory: Click Here!

NOTE – Certain AV solutions are not compatible with the security update released by Microsoft. As such, unless an AV vendor has a registry flag, QualityCompat, they will not receive the January Security update and will still be vulnerable

With the upcoming OEM hardware patch releases we expect to be able to produce a variety of interesting and informative results.  Please stay tuned for the next articles!

Citrix AppDisk – All that you need to know!!

AppDisk is an awesome technology from Citrix but it comes with its own quirks which admins/consultants should be aware of. Below are some of the items that i thought are important to know about the technology and how to set it up.

There are a few things to keep in mind before attempting to create an AppDisk.


AppDisk additional permissions

  • when you specify a size for the AppDisk, you wouldn’t be able to utilize all the size that you allocated. for eg, for an AppDisk size of 5 GB only, 3.66 are useable so always give some extra when creating appdisks
  • Don’t create snapshots of the machine prior to creating the AppDisk when using MCS Catalogs
  • There is currently no way to resize the AppDisk from within the Studio. PowerShell is the way to go.
  • There is NO versioning built into AppDisks at this stage. All that you are doing when clicking on “Create New Version” is creating a clone of the existing AppDisk which could be used to edit and update the AppDisk
  • Enable both the Shadow Copy and Microsoft Software Shadow Copy Service Provider services.
  • Some of the commands that you will find useful when working with AppDisks are as follows

To get a list of all the active tasks running, run the below

>Get-AppLibTask -active $true

To stop a particular task, run the Get-AppLibTask and take a note of the task ID


The above stop command will not remove the failed task from the Studio console. to remove it completely from the studio, run the following command

  • In many cases, AppDisks work on different OSs. For example, you can add an AppDisk that was created on a Windows 7 VM to a Delivery Group containing Windows 2008 R2 machines, as long as both OSs have the same bitness (32 bit or 64 bit) and both support the application. However, Citrix recommends you do not add an AppDisk created on a later OS version (such as Windows 10) to a Delivery Group containing machines running an earlier OS version (such as Windows 7), because it might not work correctly.
  • Finally, the link here from Citrix is a MUST READ as it covers a lot of information on MCS type and PVS type deployments

Creation Process

  • Boot the reserved VM into the Maintenance environment and leave it at the login screen
  • Head to the Studio console and select the AppDisk node. Click Create AppDisk
  • Specify the size of the disk and a name of the AppDisk in the wizard.
  • As soon as the AppDisk creation begins, the VM will be restarted. Boot the VM back into the Maintenance vDisk
  • Now wait for the process to complete
  • In the mean time, you would be able to see a drive mapping with label (Citrix) being created on the VM with the specified disk size of the AppDisk (5 GB in my case)drive-map
  • Refresh the Studio console to ensure that the VM is powered ON and is
  • Be patient as this could take while to complete.
  • If the process gets stuck at “Creating…..” state, run the command
    Get-AppLibTask -active $true

    Check the value of TaskProgress and if it is at 95%, its time to restart the VM. studio

  • Once restarted, boot the machine back into the Maintenance disk
  • Ensure that the VM is registered. Login to the VDA now and make sure that the AV agent isnt running (I have seen that logging into the server helps speed up things)
  • The AppDisk creation process should now be complete.
  • Its time now to install the applications- Right click the AppDisk name and select Install Applications
  • Once you are happy with the app install, its time to seal the disk
  • Right click and select “Seal AppDisk”
  • When the sealing process is started, the VM will restart. Just ensure that the VM restarts back into the maintenance disk
  • Once the server is back up, log into the server to speed up the sealing process. if there are AV agents running, temporarily disable it
  • The VM will restart again
  • choose the maintenance disk again and boot into it
  • it is at this stage, it will start AppDNA disk analysis (assuming that you have AppDNA integration configured)importappdiskdna
  • Refresh the Studio now and you can see the Appdisk is at Ready(AppDNA:Capturing) state
  • Soon the process should complete. The AppDisk should now be ready for app delivery readystate
  • Head on to the PVS console and delete the Maintenance vDisk that was initially created for AppDisk . Once the AppDisk is sealed, you MUST boot into the vDisk version before the Maintenence version to be able to see the applications installed on the AppDisk. Strange but true 🙂
  • If you need to edit(add more apps) a Sealed Appdisk, create a fresh Maintenance vDisk and continue with the updates. The older Maintenance vDisks will not work once sealed and should be removed from PVS console (Versioning)


Assigning an AppDisk

As previously stated, AppDisks require a machine catalog that isnt assigned to any delivery groups. So naturally the first step after creating an AppDisk is to create a delivery group and attach the AppDisk to it.

Updating an AppDisk

  • Create a Maintenance vDisk from the PVS Console
  • Change the VM type to Maintenance in the PVS Console (Device Collections)
  • If the Prep machine is already a member of a Delivery group, remove it from the delivery group.
  • Boot the Prep VM into the Maintenance vDisk and leave it at the login screen
  • Go to AppDisk node in Citrix Studio and select the AppDisk that needs to be updated.
  • Choose Create New Version
  • Give it a name and select the Machine catalog name where the prep machine resides
  • Click Create New Version
  • At this point, it creates a Control Disk


  • The Prep VM will now restart. the next step is to “Reserve” the Virtual machine
  • Boot the VM back into the Maintenance vDisk


  • It then proceeds with the Layer creation and completes it. It would say ready to install applications in Studio
  • Proceed to install applications as you would normally do
  • Seal the Appdisks when completed.
  • Delete the Maintenance version from the PVS console and change the VM type to Production from Maintenance


Diagnosing issues with AppDisk

AppDisks come with a logging tool that could be found here at C:\Program Files\Citrix\personal vDisk\bin\CtxAppDisksDiag.exe

Run the above tool as an admin and select the folder where you would like to see the log files and click OK


Importing an AppDisk

There are times you will need to import a pre-created AppDisk to the Studio. This method will also work for the manually built virtual machines.

Carl Stalhood has detailed the process to import AppDisks in his blog post here

Setting Up HDX Flash Redirection – XenApp & XenDesktop

Setting up flash redirection to work in Citrix could sometimes be a daunting task. There are a multitude of moving parts to this solution and a slight error could lead to days of troubleshooting and remediation work. I thought i will document the procedures that I followed to successfully setup Flash redirection to work on  XenApp 7.5 farm and thin clients for a customer environment.

I am not going into the details of this technology and what each versions flash redirection does as you can read about them here

I strongly recommend you read the PDF document from Citrix on HDX redirection in general.

The below procedures apply to all the versions of XenApp and XenDesktop where flash redirection is applicable. My particular case was XenApp 7.5 with IE 11

Please also check the pre-requisites section on this Citrix KB article

We will split the setup into 2 parts – Server side (VDA or Citrix Servers) setup and Client side setup

Server Side setup

  • Citrix Policies – Setup the Citrix policies for flash in Studio or Delivery Services Console as the case may be. Below is how they should look like if they are correctly configured. Also note that the latency threshold may differ according to your network conditions.


  • Flash Hotfixes – Look out for any specific hotfixes by Citrix to enable Flash acceleration. There is one required for XenApp 7.5 VDA and is available here . You may have a different version so go online and check if there is a specific hotfox availabe for Flash redirection to work. I had to download the hotfix and install on the VDA


  • Version of IE – 32 bit Internet Explorer must be used for Flash redirection to work even if you are using a 64 bit OS like Windows Server 2012 R2. Citrix recommends using IE 11
  • Flash Player Active X Plugins – Active X plugins are required on the server side for flash acceleration to work. These plugins integrate with Internet Explorer and could be installed separately if you are using IE 10 and below. You may visit Adobe Flash website to download a specific version of the Active X component. With IE 11, the Active X components are built-in alongside the browser (not a good thing in my opinion) and update are available as Windows updates from Microsoft’s site.


  • Flash Player NPAPI Plugins – It’s good to keep the IE Active X Controls and the NPAPI plugin versions the same. Though NPAPI plugins are required only for non-IE browsers according to theory, this seem to have an effect on the success of flash redirection


  • Special IE Settings – Disable Enhanced Protection Mode in IE, Some websites like need to be added to compatibility view mode for flash redirection to work. you may also need to add the website to Trusted Sites in IE in certain cases.

Client Side Setup

  • Flash Player Active X Plugins/Controls – This is a critical piece. This should either be equal to or greater than the version being run on the server.
  • Flash Player NPAPI Plugins – I would say this is the most important bit as we found out that even though you use IE in the Citrix session, NPAPI versions are compatibility checked and matched. If the check failed, flash redirection stopped working regardless of the Active X (IE) version. Keep client side NPAPI version the same or above as your NPAPI version on the server for Flash redirection to work.
  • Configure the ADM file for HDX Mediastream for Flash on all the corporate domain joined clients. This is not a requirement but still nice to have configured. Without this, your clients will still work if they meet the rest of the requirements

Other key things to note

  • Dont perform an upgrade of an existing Flash player plugin for client or server. Always install a fresh copy.
  • Flash Logging is a must have when you setup flash redirection. In most of the cases, logging will be turn ON by default and will be found under Event Viewer > Applications and Service Log > Citrix >Multimedia >Flash
  • When Flash redirection works, PseudoContainer.exe will run on the client device. Spot it using Task Manager >Details/Processes Tab
  • There is a troubleshooting guide for Flash redirection from Citrix and could be found here
  • Citrix has got a How to guide for setting up Flash and could be found here
  • Flash Logging could be enabled following the KB
  • Check the Flash Redirection compatibility KB from Citrix here

That’s it folks. Feel free to post your comments below


XenApp & XenDesktop 7.x – Citrix Director Load Balancing using NetScaler

Here is a quick and easy way to load balance your Citrix Director instances in a XenApp or XenDesktop environment.

Below is my environment

  • Citrix Director servers ( Controller servers in most cases) – director-1 and director-2
  • A NetScaler HA pair ( you can do this on a stand alone NetScaler as well)



Firstly, create a monitor for the Director services

Navigate to Traffic Management >Load Balancing >Monitors and click Add


Give it a name and select type as HTTP ( if there are no SSL certificates installed on the Director servers). Click on the Special Parameters tab and under the HTTP Type box, enter GET /Director/LogOn.aspx?cc=true


Before you click Create, ensure that it is enabled and Secure box is ticked if SSL certs are being used.


Click Create


  • Second step is to create Servers

Navigate to Traffic Management >Load Balancing >Servers and click Add


Add your Director servers here


Similarly, add the second Director servers as well

Service Groups

  • Now create the Service Group

Navigate to Traffic Management >Load Balancing >Service Groups and click Add


Give the Service Group a name and protocol is HTTP and click OK


Now Edit the service group that was just created and click on Service Group members and add the newly created services, director-1 and director-2


Once added, it will look like the below



Click Close. Click on the Monitors link as below and add the monitor that was created in Step 1


Once add the screen will look like the below. Click Close


The service group will look like the below once the above steps are completed.


Click Done

Responder Policy

A Responder policy needs to be created to redirect the users from the root of the IIS web server to the Director page.

Please note that Responder feature may need to be enabled first before you can use it.

Click on the + sign next to AppExpert and select Responder. Right click and choose Enable Feature. The yellow exclamation mark will disappear when you do that.

Once enabled, Navigate to AppExpert >Responder > Actions


Now think of a nice name to call the load balanced Director instance. you will need to add a DNS host entry later on for this name. the name that i have chosen is director

Give it a descriptive name and use the drop down for Type to select Redirect

Under Expressions, type the string here with the quotes as below



Click Create

Time now to create the Responder policy. The one that we created earlier was a Responder action.

Give a descriptive name to the Responder policy and under the Action drop down menu, select the name of the action that was created in previous step. Under the Expressions field,  type



Click Create

Virtual Server for Load balancing

Reserve an IP address to use for the virtual server.

On the left, navigate to Traffic Management >Load Balancing >Virtual Servers and click Add on the right. Give it a name and select the Protocol as HTTP

Specify the IP address for virtual server and the port number as 80. Click OK.  Note that in production environments, use secure Director access by using an SSL certificate. For the purpose of demo, we are using an unsecure connection


On the page where it says, Services and Service Groups, click No Load Balancing Virtual Server ServiceGroup Binding


Add the service group that was created in earlier steps

Click Continue

On the right hand side under Advanced Settings, Click Persistence

Select SOURCE IP as the Persistence and change the timeout value to 245 ( the default time out value for Director is 245 mins). Leave the rest of the settings as defaults and Click OK


Now, move on to the right hand side again and select Policies

Select Responder as the policy and Type as Request and click Continue


Select the redirect policy created earlier and click Bind


Click Done

Ensure that the virtual server is marked as UP in green.

DNS Config

Create a host A record in DNS for the name which in my case is director

Test the Director URL and ensure that it redirects you to the correct URL and also login and confirm that Director is usable.

That’s all you need to do to setup Director load balancing using NetScaler.





Tuning HDX policies for optimal end user performance – XenApp/XenDesktop 7.6 FP3

With the release of 7.6 feature pack 3, the default graphics delivery behavior has changed and the enhanced Thinwire Compatibility mode is not available via user policies. You will need to take into consideration about the different use cases and the importance of policy precedence to ensure the intended delivery method is used. If FrameHawk is specifically applied to a subset of users, they will use FrameHawk even if a higher priority policy specifies Thinwire Compatibility mode. here is a cheat sheet from Citrix to make your life a lot easier when configuring HDX policies


XenApp / XenDesktop 7.x – All the PowerShell cmdlets

Here is a dump of all that you can do via the PowerShell cmdlets in a XenApp /XenDesktop 7.x world. Note that the below has been taken from a XenApp 7.5 controller so there might be SDK updates in the newer releases.

Running a QFARM command in XenApp 7.x

As most of you are aware by now, Qfarm command doesn’t run anymore in XenApp 7.x as it is a part of old IMA architecture.

With FMA, there are several ways to check the Server load, the easiest being using Citrix Studio and checking Load Index.

However, there is another method to check the load from using a PowerShell window and it is as below.

asnp citrix*
Get-BrokerMachine –Filter ‘SessionSupport –eq “MultiSession”’ –Property @(‘DNSName’,’LoadIndex’)


if you need more details, you could add more parameters in your command line as below

Get-BrokerMachine –Filter ‘SessionSupport –eq “MultiSession”’ –Property @(‘DNSName’,'WindowsConnectionSetting','SessionCount',’LoadIndex’)

The result from running the above command is as follows


Hope it’s useful for someone out there!!!



Power Management of XenDesktop 7.x Delivery Groups – Prevent workloads from powering off when not in use

There are many a times when you would want to prevent XenDesktop/XenApp 7.x power management from powering off virtual machines in the catalog. If you ever wondered how to do it, here are the steps

Open the PowerShell in administrative mode on the Controller server

asnp citrix*
Set-BrokerDesktopGroup "Delivery group Name" -AutomaticPowerOnForAssignedDuringPeak $True

if the above doesnt fix it, then run the below command as well which will ensure that all the VMs are ready for connections all the time

Set-BrokerDesktopGroup "<Delivery group Name>" -PeakBufferSizePercent 100 -OffPeakBufferSizePercent -100

Citrix License Usage Monitoring using PowerShell

The below PowerShell script could be used to deliver automated emails on the Citrix License usage for Citrix Admins.

Where do you run this script from?

Citrix License Server

How do you run this?

The script could be saved as a file with an extension of .ps1

Also ensure that you have a folder called report_do_not_delete created in the C: drive on the license server. Also, make the relevant changes in the script marked in Red. Run the script as a scheduled task at a specific time to receive the license usage reports in your mailbox or run it manually from a PowerShell window in Admin mode

#Region Settings
#Your License Server
$CitrixLicenseServer = “yourlicenseservername”

#Do you want to report on licenses with 0 users?
$ShowUnusedLicenses = $true

#Toggle an alert above this percentage of licenses used
$UsageAlertThreshold = 0

#EndRegion Settings

#Region CollectData
#retrieve license information from the license server
$LicenseData = Get-WmiObject -class “Citrix_GT_License_Pool” -namespace “ROOT\CitrixLicensing” -ComputerName $CitrixLicenseServer

$usageReport = @()

Storefront Multi-Site and High Availability – Guidelines for an Active-Active datacenter design

I am currently working on a XenDesktop 7.6 project that is designed to span 2 datacenters, Auckland and Sydney. One of the critical customer requirement is to redirect the user connections to their primary site regardless of their location first and failover to secondary site if the primary site is down. They also have a bunch of call center users in Manila, Philippines who should be assigned to primary site Sydney and Auckland as a failover site. Auckland users must be directed to Auckland XenDesktop site and Sydney users must be redirected to Sydney datacenter for their primary apps and desktops. There were also some additional requirements that are outlined below. In summary, the below are the technical requirements

  1. Redirect users to their nearest NetScalers
  2. Provide single published application icons for the same applications across both sites so that the application access is seamless to the user
  3. Users will be mapped to a primary site( Auckland or Sydney) and will need to failover to the secondary site in case of primary site unavailability
  4. Provide a single URL for application access for the users in all the sites, Auckland, Sydney and Manila.
  5. Any unique applications from both sites should be enumerated.
  6. There are certain applications that should be launched from one particular site for all the users due to the application backend requirements (limitations)

How do we achieve the above? This was something that was impossible to do with Citrix Web Interface up to versions 5.4. Wait, there is some hope.

XenDesktop Site Details

Auckland XenDesktop site consists of XenDesktop 7.6 site alongside Storefront 2.6 cluster with 2 nodes and NetScaler 10.5 for GSLB.

Sydney site also has a distinct XenDesktop site with a SF cluster with 2 nodes and a NetScaler for GSLB ( All same versions as in Auckland)


Let’s look at how each element should be designed to achieve the above stated requirements.

Requirement 1 – Redirect users to their nearest NetScalers

This is quite an easy one and we would have done this countless times in our previous projects – yes, the good old GSLB ( Global Server Load Balancing). I am not going to reinvent the wheel here as there are some fantastic literature about this already from Citrix and from Carl Stalhood. I recommend the one from Carl as he has the latest one based on NetScaler 10.5

Requirement 2 – Provide single published application icons for the same applications across both sites so that the application access is seamless to the user

I am sure this is quite new to a lot of people out there, at least for me it was. This is where Storefront comes in. Citrix has built some excellent intelligence around Storefront to achieve this quite easily. This feature is technically called Resource Aggregation. There is an good explanation on this from Citrix here which i recommend every one to read. The key for this to work is to keep the application and desktop names the same across both XenDesktop sites. The path of application executables must also match for this to work. if there are differences, then they will be shown up as separate applications.

Also please note that AppController applications cannot be aggregated via this method.

Here is an excerpt from Citrix edocs on the above with changes relevant to my setup “Where a desktop or application with the same name and path on the server is available from both Sydney and Auckland, StoreFront aggregates these resources and presents users with a single icon. This behavior is a result of setting the aggregationGroup attribute to AggregationGroup1 for both the Sydney and Auckland deployments. Users clicking on an aggregated icon are typically connected to the resource in their location, where available. However, if a user already has an active session on another deployment that supports session reuse, the user is preferentially connected to the resource on that deployment to minimize the number of sessions used.”

Requirement 3 – Users will be mapped to a primary site( Auckland or Sydney) and will need to failover to the secondary site in case of primary site failure

The idea here is to split the users into 2 groups and assign them a primary site – In the end, one group will have the primary site assigned as Auckland and the other with primary site assigned as Sydney.

The key here is to add the users to separate AD groups for each sites and configure the XenDesktop sites/farms in a specific order (Manage Delivery Controllers in SF) and use the word “Failover” in Storefront configuration. I will get to this in detail in the Setup section below.

Requirement 4 – Provide a single URL for application access for the users in all the sites, Auckland, Sydney and Manila.

GSLB could do this quite easily. Please refer to the above links

Requirement 5 – Any unique applications from both sites should be enumerated.

This is already explained in parts under Requirement 2. If there is a case where any unique applications are to be delivered from one site for all the users, all that is required to be done is to publish that application in the relevant site. The application will appear when the enumeration is done and clicking it will take the users to the site from where the application is published.

Requirement 6 – There are certain applications that should be launched from one particular site for all the users due to the application backend requirements (limitations)

This use case is relevant when there are 2 or more applications with the same name across datacenters and you would need your users to always go to one datacenter to launch it. if the application isnt available at the primary datacenter, then it will be launched from the secondary datacenter. This is done by adding “Primary” and Secondary” keywords in the application description. Doing this will override the application load balancing/Failover rules specified above and will attempt to launch first from the Primary site. if the primary site app isn’t available for any reason, launch it from the Secondary site.

How this is all setup in Storefront

All the configurations are made in Web.Config file residing on the Storefront servers. Please also note that the changes must be made to the config file of the Stores and not the Web version of the Stores.

Now before you get started with the configuration, there are a few things that you need to have beforehand to make your life easier. XML Notepad will be one of them and the other will be the sample configuration from Citrix which could be found here

I recommend using XML Notepad as it makes the Web.Config file look ridiculously simple.

Getting Started

Create the Store as you usually do via Storefront Console. Update the information under “Manage Delivery Controllers”. Also ensure that you add the secondary site info as well in here now. This piece is very important in the process as the names that are used here will be reused in the Storefront configs later on in the Web.Config file. Once you make changes to Web.Config file, you cant change the “Manage Delivery Controllers” section via the GUI anymore for that store.

My Sydney Storefront cluster store will look like this after configuration. Please also refer the order of the sites – very important. First one must be Sydney followed by Auckland.

Sydney Site is called SYD and Auckland site is called AKL


Those who have keen eyes must also have noticed that the “Edit” button is missing from the above. This is the file after the changes are made.

My Auckland Storefront cluster will have the above settings reversed.

Now create 2 AD Groups – One to host Sydney users and another one for Auckland Users. Add the users accordingly to it.

Get the SID of these groups – I used Sysinternals PsGetSid tool

Now to the main part, Web.Config file changes

Web.Config file

All StoreFront store configurations can be found in the respective web.config file  .\inetpub\wwwroot\Citrix\\web.config.

This is where we add the configuration for StoreFront High availability.

For convenience, I made a backup copy of the web.config file before making any changes.

As you will be making a lot of changes it is much simpler to edit the file direct on the server and not have to keep copying it back and forth to your machine each time.

I recommend you copy the example configuration from Citrix from here

Then in XML notepad, expand citrix.deliveryservices –> resourcesCommon and delete anything underneath resourcesCommon

Then right click citrix.deliveryservices and click paste.

Your web.config should now look like this


Delete 2 references to “equivalentFarmSet” under the node “equivalentFarmSets” and the config file should look like the below. You would also need to remove one “farm” and a backup reference. Overall It should look like the below. If it doesn’t, you are not going to achieve what you need.


Now start populating the data values on the right and mine looked like the below after the config.


The ones marked with red dots are descriptors so you could add what you like there.

Once you have done that, you have half of the logic in place. now for the other half, copy the node “UserFarmMapping” and paste it under “UserFarmMappings”. Look for the extra “s” XD

Once copied, you will need to reverse the entries for the failover to work. The copied part looked like this after the final config


This is the final configuration below for the Sydney Storefront cluster. Save the Web.Config file. Close the file. Make sure that the changes are propagated to the other SF servers in the Sydney cluster using the GUI.


Now, I will have to repeat the same process for the Auckland Storefront cluster in residing in Auckland datacenter

Just reverse all the settings that are made above and to those who are still confused on how it all should look like at the other end, below are a couple of screenshots from Auckland side.


This is how the Store config is via the GUI in Auckland. Look at the order as I want the Auckland site to be processed first followed by Sydney controllers


Citrix Studio Configuration

Add the Auckland_Test_Users AD group to the Delivery Group in Auckland site.


Now how do you get the failover to happen to Sydney for Auckland users?? Well, create another 2 groups – one for Auckland and another for Sydney. use the Sydney group and add it in Auckland Delivery group. I didn’t talk about the extra 2 groups in the beginning to keep it simple. In fact you will need 2 AD groups per datacenter site. In my screenshot above, i used an account for testing – sydctxuser

Now the Sydney Delivery group is configured as below


Please note that the Auckland account is added for failover. Use the second Auckland group in here in a production setup.

There you have it. You have a storefront that is intelligent enough to route the users based on their mappings and provide high availability. Also here is a copy of the configuration part of the web.config file as a sample below. Just change the items marked in BOLD except for “Default” entries


        <resourcesWingConfiguration name="Default" wingName="Default">
            <clear />
            <userFarmMapping name="Sydney_user_mapping">
                <group name="BCS\Sydney_Test_Users" sid="S-1-5-21-1752688384-406871208-1000598102-10304" />
                <equivalentFarmSet name="SYDNEY" loadBalanceMode="Failover" aggregationGroup="AggregationGroup1">
                    <farm name="SYD" />
                    <farm name="AKL" />
            <userFarmMapping name="Auckland_user_mapping">
                <group name="BCS\Auckland_Test_Users" sid="S-1-5-21-1752688384-406871208-1000598102-10303" />
                <equivalentFarmSet name="AUCKLAND" loadBalanceMode="Failover" aggregationGroup="AggregationGroup1">
                    <farm name="AKL" />
                    <farm name="SYD" />

How to verify that NetScaler COOKIEINSERT persistent sessions are working?

Ever had issues with your Storefront load balancing setup not working after painstakingly setting up NetScaler load balancing?

Now, let’s discuss a few reasons why cookie based persistence are better (in some scenarios) compared to Source-IP based persistence.

In some circumstances, using persistence based on source IP address can overload your servers. All requests to a single Web site or application are routed through the single gateway to the NetScaler appliance, even though they are then redirected to multiple locations. In multiple proxy environments, client requests frequently have different source IP addresses even when they are sent from the same client, resulting in rapid multiplication of persistence sessions where a single session should be created. This issue is called the “Mega Proxy problem.” You can use HTTP cookie-based persistence instead of Source IP-based persistence to prevent this from happening.

If all incoming traffic comes from behind a Network Address Translation (NAT) device or proxy, the traffic appears to the NetScaler appliance to come from a single source IP address. This prevents Source IP persistence from functioning properly. Where this is the case, you must select a different persistence type.

HTTP Cookie Persistence

When HTTP cookie persistence is configured, the NetScaler appliance sets a cookie in the HTTP headers of the initial client request. The cookie contains the IP address and port of the service selected by the load balancing algorithm. As with any HTTP connection, the client then includes that cookie with any subsequent requests.

When the NetScaler appliance detects the cookie, it forwards the request to the service IP and port in the cookie, maintaining persistence for the connection. You can use this type of persistence with virtual servers of type HTTP or HTTPS. This persistence type does not consume any appliance resources and therefore can accommodate an unlimited number of persistent clients.

Note: If the client’s Web browser is configured to refuse cookies, HTTP cookie-based persistence will not work. It might be advisable to configure a cookie check on the Web site, and warn clients that do not appear to be storing cookies properly that they will need to enable cookies for the Web site if they want to use it.

By default, the NetScaler appliance sets HTTP version 0 cookies for maximum compatibility with client browsers. (Only certain HTTP proxies understand version 1 cookies; most commonly used browsers do not.) You can configure the appliance to set HTTP version 1 cookies, for compliance with RFC2109. For HTTP version 0 cookies, the appliance inserts the cookie expiration date and time as an absolute Coordinated Universal Time (GMT). It calculates this value as the sum of the current GMT time on the appliance and the time-out value. For HTTP version 1 cookies, the appliance inserts a relative expiration time by setting the “Max-Age” attribute of the HTTP cookie. In this case, the client’s browser calculates the actual expiration time.

So some of the benefits of using cookie based persistence are

  • Easy to configure
  • Load balancer does all the work without involving the back end services (mostly a web server)
  • No connection table to maintain
  • Activity based – Time out is based on idle connection and not the total connection time
  • caters to most of the load balancing scenarios
  • if proxies are involved in the setup where source IPs are masked, this makes it an easy choice

Cons of Cookie based persistence

  • can throw off the load balancing where timeouts are set to 0 or when time outs are long lived
  • when Type 0 cookie is used, time of the cookie value is absolute(GMT time). When type 1 is used, relative time is used (local time)
  • hard to troubleshoot

Testing COOKIEINSERT persistence

Use Putty or some other SSH clients to login to the NetScaler.

sh lb vserver vservername

If you take a closer look at the snippet above, the letters in yellow shows that COOKIEINSERT persistence is turned ON with a time out value of 0 mins. This means that the cookies doesn’t have an expiry time set by the NetScaler appliance. The backup persistence is set to SourceIP with a time out value of 60mins. You can also see the cookie values at the bottom of the results staring with NSC_xxxxxxx

You will now need to get into Shell with an account that has permissions. To get to shell, type shell and hit enter

Now type the following

nsconmsg -i vservername -s ConLb=1 -d oldconmsg

In the snippet above, the highlighted text in yellow shows that persistence is set to Cookieinsert and the number of hits for each service. You will also get values such as response times, CPU and memory utilization.

VIP value shows the total number of hits to the vServer hits
Each service has a line starting with S (IP Address) and its status.
Hits (x, x/sec) shows the initial (method) hits to the service for a new connection.
P (x, x/sec) shows hits to the service that are served using a persistence cookie

Also, check the current persistent session via the commands below

sh persistentsessions
sh persistentsessions -summary

Extract the Application Groups from a Delivery Group – XenApp/XenDesktop 7.x

This is going to be a quick post to explain how you can extract all the AD groups that are currently being used for the various applications that you serve in XenApp/XenDesktop 7.x farms. This came very handy when I had a large number of applications that need to be migrated to a new XenApp 7.15 LTSR farm. This will also come very handy for documentation purposes.

First up, you will need to find the Delivery Group Name UUID that you need to extract the details from. If you have multiple delivery groups, you will need to find the UUIDs for all the Delivery groups.

To find the UUID, run the command below in a PowerShell window in admin mode

asnp Citrix*

This returns the details of all the Delivery groups in the XenApp farm.

Take a note of the UUID value

Now run the below to show the application names and the assigned user AD groups

Get-BrokerApplication -AssociatedDesktopGroupUUID 918bd477-6848-4d27-b98d-28296e78d6a1 | select ApplicationName,AssociatedUserFullNames


You can get all sorts of results by changing the filters. To know the available filters, please refer here

Or simply run the below which shows the various filters that you can use for a given application


That’s it for now. I hope this helps someone with their PowerShell journey in Citrix
