  • Citrix - ignoring terminal services profile in A/D

    Hi Guys,

    First of all, A Happy New Year to you all!!

    Hoping someone can help me out here!

    Over the Xmas break, a load of windows updates were done on all of our servers and since then, the Citrix farm has had a fairly major issue!

    It appears that part of the terminal services profile section (just the home area section) of the entry for users in Active Directory is missed out. If the home area is entered into the standard profile (not terminal services profile) the home area maps without problem.

    The reason we map different areas is because the Citrix users are generally UNIX users and as such, their home areas are all on the UNIX servers.

    If anyone can shed any light on this, it would be hugely appreciated!!

    Many thanks,
    Jay

    Where the user profiles reside? On the Unix box? If so, try to upgrade the Samba version to latest one.

      The user profiles are on a windows server.

        Please write the following settings:

        1. What antivirus you use?
        2. How the users connect to the terminal (which client version)?
        3. Is there some re-direct policy? You can try to run gpresult
        from the command line to see which GPO load for the computer/user.
        4. Is there mapping to home folder? Usually when you open the command
        prompt or when you run application they try to write settings, temp files
        on the home folder.
        5. What the version Citrix and Win that you use (Including SP/Hotfix level)?


        After this, try to use local user profile and direct there My Docs etc. by using GPO to some share on the server. Dont set for the test any home folder.
        If its working fine, try to enable home folder for the user profile.

          1. What antivirus you use?

          Corporate Edition Symantec Anti-Virus, this is the latest version (10)

          2. How the users connect to the terminal (which client version)?

          Citrix ICA Client for Linux, version 9

          3. Is there some re-direct policy? You can try to run gpresult
          from the command line to see which GPO load for the computer/user.

          No that i'm aware of or have setup.

          4. Is there mapping to home folder? Usually when you open the command
          prompt or when you run application they try to write settings, temp files
          on the home folder.

          I thought all the settings would be written to the profile directory? This seems to work fine, its just the mapping of the home directory from the terminal services profile that doesn't happen. It works fine if you put the Unix home dir path in the normal profile settings (not the terminal services profile)

          5. What the version Citrix and Win that you use (Including SP/Hotfix level)?

          Windows 2000 SP4
          Metaframe XPa feature release 2

          Let me know if you need any more info

          Many thanks,
          Jay

            Did you installed Win 2000 SP4 Rollup update?

            http://support.microsoft.com/kb/891861


            It will be wise to consider to move to Citrix 4.0 + Win 2003 due the fact that FP2 doesnt get today offical support as I know.
