SSL Certificates play a big role in a Citrix Password Manager deployment. They help to ensure the password data in the central store is genuine and they also allow for encrypted communications between the Password Manager service and the Password Manager agent. There are lots of things that can go wrong with certificates that will stall your Password Manager deployment.
I recently came across a multimedia application that uses the Indeo codec for its video components. While this codec is supported by HDX it is only supported when it runs within the context of Windows Media Player, QuickTime, or one of the other supported video players. This particular application made use of its own player which prevented the HDX technologies from enhancing the performance of the videos.
I did my first XenApp 5 Feature Pack 2 upgrade/install today and I have to say that for the fist time the installer is actually quite nice. If you hadn’t heard, Citrix has finally combined all of the components of XenApp into a single ISO image.
I was recently tasked with configuring multipathing in Citrix XenServer 5.5 for use with an IBM DS4800 SAN. At first glance I thought, piece of cake, I’ve done quite a few setups like this with Dell, EMC, and HP storage gear so the IBM should be the same right? WRONG!
Lately I have been on a tear when it comes to taking Citrix certification tests. I’m eagerly awaiting the release of the exams needed to upgrade my CCEA to the new CCEE. But a troubling trend has begun to emerge, the exams and certifications seem to have a longer development cycle than the products themselves.
