Once connected to remote desktop, drag Citrix window across both monitors. Press the maximize button, the client will maximize to both screens and be presented as a dual-monitor setup.

Put the Receiver into windowed mode and put it so half of the window is on each monitor, then maximize it and it should go fullscreen / dual screen.

Short answer: no, it is not. From a recent RackSpace KB article possibly outlining the root cause of your problem: Uninstalling the existing XenServer Tools software will render your server inaccessible. This is due to the simple fact that the XenServer tools contain paravirtualized drivers (networking, storage) necessary for the virtual system to ...

I figured this out. If you installed the Citrix Receiver, and have the browser plugin, you will need to disable that plugin so that a *.ica file does not launch automatically with the ICA Client when it finishes downloading. Edit the file in a text editor and change the TWIMode=Off, to TWIMode=On. This will allow the window to span to both monitors. ...

Not supported Sorry. This has been a requested feature since 2007. And as of 2016 it is still unsupported. You may have to buy a dedicated USB-to-Ethernet dongle server. I have no experience with these things. But they exist. E.g. from SEH or from Silex. Sources: Citrix XenServer Feature Request Forum: 2007, USB - How to add the USB to the guest Machines (...

I'd really like to say that you should avoid using any G3 ProLiant in 2013... especially for virtualization... Anywho, the XenServer HCL does not include the G3 ProLiants. You need a 64-bit CPU per the XenServer software requirements. One or more 64-bit x86 CPU(s), 1.5 GHz minimum, 2 GHz or faster multicore CPU recommended The HP ProLiant DL360 G3 systems ...

I'm Dan and I'm addicted to VDI. This answer can (and does) span several books, but let's give it a go: VDI is definitely in vogue, for sure, but remember - the basis of it isn't really new technology. Citrix Winframe started life on Windows NT and Citrix has been offering access to centralised Windows apps and desktops ever since. The ICA protocol is even ...

You have bad information. Citrix provides a equation to answer your underlying question about CPU assignments. XenServer 5.0 Update 3 Admin Guide (p. 140). http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX120713 : Provision just enough Virtual CPUs (VCPUs) for each VM's workload. Don't give a VM more VCPUs than it needs to do its work. If the server in a VM only needs ...

Remove ghosted NICs This can happen if you set your network configuration prior to installing the XenServer tools on the guest. Open device manager on the server, and ensure you have "Show hidden devices enabled" (View menu->Show hidden devices). If you see any additional network adapters listed, such as Realtek RTL8139 devices, remove them from ...

It could still be the XFS filesystem in this case. You may have heavy fragmentation issues as well as the slowdown that comes with a nearly-full filesystem. You could benefit from more space in either case. Please check the XFS filesystem's fragmentation. You can do this with the xfs_db command. If the filesystem is /dev/sdb1, for example, then you command ...

Getting SSDs just for the hypervisor is a waste of money. It should be running from memory most of the time, so you would just see faster boot time. Unless faster boot time for a host is of critical importance to you. In most cases I would expect you would get better bang for your buck elsewhere.

host= should be used when migrating to another host in the pool. When migrating outside the pool(no pool) you should use these options: remote-username= remote-master= remote-password=

You can disable and hide the C: with Group Policy but be warned that it's not 100% fool proof. Ensure your write permissions are good and that you're users aren't administrators, but if you're letting someone connect to a machine you shouldn't have anything directly sensitive on that machine. Citrix best practice would be to Silo sensitive apps and data ...

Some statements to help clarify things Citrix (XenApp) is based on terminal services. The user is logged onto a terminal services session (think RDP). This is displayed in steps [5-7]. The web interface is exactly that, something that is presented in a web browser. You may be aware the application shortcut can also be in other locations. These are ...

Unfortunately, the accepted answer is mostly incorrect. Citrix XenCenter connects to Xenserver through the XAPI toolstack. Therefore, any instance of Xen that uses the XAPI toolstack can be managed through Citrix XenCenter. I've managed Citrix Xenserver, Xen Cloud Platform, and Xen on Ubuntu 12.04 with Citrix XenCenter. Citrix XenServer and Xen Cloud ...

Old question, but new answer... Yes, as of V6.1 it does.

Yes, the Xen hypervisor (as well as others) will just share timeslices of the available CPUs to your virtual machines. And yes, you can overbook the amount of vCPUs. You could pin the vCPUs to physical CPU cores, but this is not required at all, in which case you let the hypervisor decide what VM gets a certain amount of timeslices of a physical CPU core. ...

If you really really want to get SSDs you should think about the workloads you are running on XenServer and which ones would benefit from the much higher IOPS and lower latencies - typical candidates are database servers and high traffic mail servers. As dunxd already said, don't waste money putting the hypervisor on an SSD... I'd rather put it on some 3.5" ...

You certainly can have the VM migrated to ESXi, this would be rather easy. Windows 2000 terminal services indeed did not support com port redirection via virtual circuits, but you might try to mimic this functionality through one of the freely available com port redirector software packages. If you do not have a Windows 2000 Server but only a Professional ...

Some of this may depend on the type of applications in use over the ICA connection and the latency on the 56k lines as well as the number of users trying to use that 56k line at the same location. From a general perspective, XenApp (up to v6.5) can still use the PNAgent much like Program Neighborhood in the old MetaFrame days. In theory, if your ...

On a MAC, it's easy as dragging the corner of the desktop window across monitors. For Windows, is much more cumbersome. On the Citrix Receiver icon at the top left corner of the Desktop window, click on resize session, select Full Screen for Desktop Size. To get out of Full Screen mode do a SHIFT+F2 If anybody know a better way, please post Thanks

Yes. NetScaler can do that. CSVS You will have to create a "Content Switching Virtual Server" (CSVS). This will be the traffic cop directing traffic either to the left or the right. LBVS Next stop for the traffic will be a "Load Balancing Virtual Server" (LBVS). This will accept traffic from the CSVS and direct it to the backend servers. Backend health ...

Depending on the type of traffic you want to be logged, and the components that you are using, you have some different options. All starts with the following: Create a Message Action (under System --> Auditing --> Message actions), and use the following expression: CLIENT.IP.SRC You also have to define the log level under which the message should be ...

We've found a solution finally. The issue is not only with Windows Server 2k16, but also with Windows 10 in general. 1) To remove the annoying box that pops up, we exported the Default Associations file, and deployed it via Group Policy, note the default associations file only had Internet Protocols / web type files in it, and all pointed to Internet ...

I have similar problem with Citrix ICA Client under Ubuntu 12.04 and Win7 as a remote system. But Mark's workaround didn't help to me. I've solved this by changing ~/.ICAClient/wfclient.ini Replace: ;KeyboardLayout = (User Profile) By: KeyboardLayout = US-International I suppose that ICA client inadequately choose system keyboard layout, because I have ...

I was able to fix the same problem by changing the settings on the VMWare virtual machine, so that "windows applications" (i.e. Citrix apps, or so the system thinks) are not automatically opened with VMWare Fusion. I already had the Citrix plug-in downloaded, but the problem wasn't solved until I changed the settings in VMWare Fusion. On macOS 10....
