My Goal is to make client-to-server redirection work in citrix XenApp sessions. I believe my problem is caused by the default behavior of client drive mapping, but I could be wrong.
Currently, I have ServerA with IE, and ServerB with Microsoft Word. From my desktop, if I open a word document, ServerB launches Microsoft Word, and opens the document. If I launch an IE session using XenApp on ServerA, and click on a word document, ServerB launches Word, but the document does not open. If I connect to ServerA through RDP, and click on the same word document, ServerB launches Word, and the document opens.
I believe the problem is caused by the client drive mapping behavior, but I cannot find any way to change how it behaves. When I open a word document and it works, ServerB has a drive mapped to the machine I am using. So if I try to open it from my computer, it has a drive mapped to my computer, if I use ServerA through RDP it has a drive mapped to ServerA. When I use a Citrix session on ServerA to open a word document, it has a drive mapped to my computer, not to ServerA. I think that I need a drive mapped to ServerA.
I have followed the steps listed in this CTX article:
I have also checked the documentation in the Citrix Administrators guide for our Client, and for our Version of XenApp. The application looks to be configured properly with the "%*" wildcard configured to receive the information from the client. Client drive mappings are also enabled.
I cannot find any information on how to change the behavior of client drive mapping.
