Actually, that's not it at all. For what we do, publish Internet
Explorer, it works fine (110 users per DL360 server, not even breaking a
sweat). We just have a bad taste left over from the SA extortion attempt
and subsequent meetings with Citrix to "address" our concerns that
resulted in invoices from Citrix with original SA pricing INCLUDING late
fees. I'm done with them. More power to those that continue using
Citrix...

We come across this regularly with clients that have less than ideal
Citrix implementations in the past (not provided by us!). We usually
come in and refresh the software and create an updated design, and in
the process, use a new naming convention that takes away the word
"Citrix" from the project. Once we do that we have a very high level of
satisfaction.

 

PS- I see that you are running XP- no wonder they aren't happy!!

Actually, we are looking at potentially yanking Citrix out completely
and going with PMF or pure Terminal Services. Citrix is not highly
regarded in these parts...

Rob,

 

Probably not what you are looking for, but if you upgrade to PS4 you can
use policies to automatically assign session printers based on the
subnet of each club......

Matthew,

 

I'd be very interested to hear some specifics regarding how you are
accomplishing this as we modify a mandatory profile to change network
printer configurations and when we build a club profile, we manually add
the club's network printers. We have 380+ fitness clubs and we have
Windows TCP/IP printers at each one. We run those queues on Server 2003
File and Print servers in the data center. We use a single mandatory
profile for each club, which is used by anywhere from 8-18 users. Works
great but simplifying the network printer piece would be a plus. Note
that we run MF XPe 1.0 FR4/SP4 on Server 2003 on the back-end.

 

Thanks!

I use a script that installs and removes printers based on AD groups.

Hi all 

I am going to be doing a presentation at CSEIT prior to iForum on
Getting the most of Citrix/Using Citrix across your organization. 

 

I am looking for additional ideas from people on how they have come up
with innovative/original new ways to save time and use Citrix in your
corporation. 

 

I have things like ways of publishing MMC's of AD users, Rdesktops and
Exchange Control Panel,  Publishing Printers Folder, Web interace mods,
CSG/WI usage, etc.  Just looking for some other great things people are
doing with Citrix Products that they think others may not of thought of
that other companies could use.  I'll make the whole presentation
available after CSEIT to the list.  

 

Please post to the list as this could be a great thread also. Include
registry hacks, text you used to publish the item, etc. I'll try and
give credit where credit is due. 

 

Thanks,
