Did they try to charge you more than you would have paid if you had stayed
current? To me that should be absolute max they charge..

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,
