Citrix Recevier for iPad shows “Error” but Reciever for Android works

Posted on February 21st, 2012

Came across  this interesting problem today.

Users connecting to a XenApp deployment via a Netscaler 9.3 & CAG Enterprise Edition using the Citrix receiver for iPad and Android. Web Interface for Netscaler was used to provide the XenApp services site.

The Android receiver worked as expected but the iPhone/iPad receiver did not enumerate the apps. On the creation of a new connection, the following errors were shown:

  • iPhone: There are no applications available at this time
  • iPad: Error

After much messing about, it seems that when creating a XenApp service site on the Netscaler, a checkbox is provided stating “enable connection through mobile receiver”. When this is selected a few “rewrite” rules are created to resolve a problem with the iPad/iPhone receiver connections but the rewrite feature is not enabled at the same time on the Netscaler. Simply right clicking the “rewrite” menu in the left panel and selecting to enable the feature is enough to resolve the problem.

After doing this, all mobile receivers can connect as expected.

XenServer – Management NIC bonding problem

Posted on November 26th, 2009

Have noticed this rather annoying bug with XenServer 5.5


If a pool of servers is created, and NIC 0+1 is bonded with the management interface running on this bonded network.

All configuration steps were done from XenCenter


A new XenServer is added to the pool, the NICs are un-bonded before adding it to the pool (but the same problem exists even if they are bonded)

The new XenServer is added to the pool and it picks up the pool network configuration however the Bond0+1network shows as unknown rather than connected.


Remove the Bond0+1 network from the pool (which obviously affects all servers)

Create the bond 0+1 again

Now this bond shows as connected on all XenServers.

how annoying.

Resultant Set of Policy/gpresult: access denied error message

Posted on October 16th, 2008

When running a Resultant Set of Policy from the Group policy management Console (GPMC) the following error is displayed:

Also, the following ‘access denied’ error appears when running gpresult.exe from a command prompt on the server:

Running on other servers seems okay, but on these specific servers there is a problem.


This can be resolved by doing the following:


regsvr32 /n /I userenv.dll

mofcomp scersop.mof

gpupdate /force

Tested as working on Windows 2003 x64 Enterprise Edition. (and it doesn’t even need a reboot)
