Error: “Cannot Complete Your Request” After Publishing New App or Customizing App’s Icon on StoreFront

If you experience the error after publishing a new application or customizing an application’s icon, check the event viewer on the StoreFront server and look for the following errors:

Event 1 = There was an error during a resources List request. System.Net.WebException, System, Version=4.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089

The remote server returned an error: (500) Internal Server Error.

Event 7 = Unhandled exception thrown for route “DazzleResources/List” System.ArgumentException, mscorlib, Version=4.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089 Offset and length were out of bounds for the array or count is greater than the number of elements from index to the end of the source collection.

The workaround is to go to Studio > Delivery Groups > Applications > view the properties of the application recently added > Delivery > Application Icon > Change and choose from any of the Citrix default icons.

Reboot Schedule Doesn’t work for two Delivery Groups in XenApp

Use Case: “We have a schedule to restart the machines in the delivery group every Sunday. The problem is that a few machines don’t turn back on, others don’t even receive the command to turn off.”

Checking the Event Viewer logs in the Delivery Controller we see these errors:

Event ID 3105

Log name: Application

Source: Citrix Broker Service

Text: The Citrix Broker Service has terminated the processing of the GroupReboot for Desktop ‘[Delivery Group name]’ The reboot cycle UID = 999 ended with the final state ‘Abandoned’ Summary: ‘0’ machines successfully rebooted, ‘2’ machines failed to reboot. ‘1’ machines were not processed

Error: “Your apps are not available at this time. Please try again” When Receiver Connects Through NetScaler Gateway

Solution 1

To resolve this issue change the beacon entries in StoreFront. Add the NetScaler Gateway addresses to external beacon.

Reference: https://docs.citrix.com/en-us/storefront/3-11/integrate-with-netscaler-and-netscaler-gateway/configure-beacon.html

External Beacon

If you want to use ICA proxy from internal and external connections (all clients should only go through NetScaler), then add a fake address in the internal beacon of StoreFront.

Note: The internal beacon should only be resolvable inside the network, if the beacon is resolvable externally then Citrix Receiver will not be able to add the account.

Solution 2

The issue relates to compatibility of Receiver 4.x and Web Interface XenApp services site. Receiver 4.x supports services sites but when connecting thru NS, users may experience issues as described in CTX136828 – Error When Using Windows Receiver PNAgent through Access Gateway Enterprise Edition Appliance.

Also note Citrix Documentation – NetScaler to Web Interface XenApp Services site is not supported.

      Warning – The document … is on a volume that does not support permanent storage.

      User-added image

      It is safe to ignore this message. Apple has a built in versioning system that is available on volumes with the Mac OS Extended (HFS+) file system. ShareFile for Mac mounts your ShareFile account as a volume that does not use this file system format and may trigger this message when closing applications. Versioning on documents is available with ShareFile’s own versioning option. To access other versions of a document, you may right click on a file in the ShareFile volume and select view details.

      Dismiss the warning message, and check “Do not show this message again” if desired.

      Upload Files that are embedded packages (.app, .pkg, .band, etc.) do not upload properly and may cause folders performance issues after upload. Compress these files to a .zip and upload the zip.

      Upload Opening a compressed zip file (or other file archive) within the ShareFile drive will fail if the compressed file contains folders. Upload the files and folders without compression.

      Citrix Files gives you access to the files on your ShareFile account by making them available as a storage drive (like an SD card or a thumb drive). This drive needs to mount itself into your Mac’s file system before files can be accessed from ShareFile. If the Citrix Files app experiences an issue with mounting, the app menu bar icon will show a warning symbol. You will need to ensure the drive mounts properly before you may use Citrix Files.

      Reconnect the Drive

      1. Click the Citrix Files menu bar icon.
      2. Click Reconnect.
      User-added image

      VDA Cannot Communicate With Delivery Controllers

      To resolve this issue:

      1. If the communication between VDA and Delivery Controllers were set using

      a) Policy or Manually/Registry-based:

      • Verify the ListOfDDCs is not empty, and that the hostnames are correctly entered and can be resolved. To do this, you can ping each host name or use nslookup from the command prompt.
      • Value will be stored in:
      HKLMSoftwarePoliciesCitrixVirtualDesktopAgent (ListOfDDCs)

      or

      HKLMSoftwareWow6432NodeCitrixVirtualDesktopAgent (ListOfDDCs)

      *For more information, see [Best Practices for XenDesktop Registry-based DDC Registration] (https://support.citrix.com/article/CTX133384) in the Citrix Knowledge Center.

      b) Active Directory OU-based discovery:

      • Value will be stored in:

      64 Bit HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESoftwareWow6432NodeCitrixVirtualDeskto pAgentFarmGUID

      • The MCS process creates C:Personality.ini, containing a list of contactable DDCs in following format:

      [VdaData] ListOfDDCs=<FQDN of the Controller>

      2. Verify the VDA’s DNS settings are correctly configured so the Delivery Controller’s FQDN can be resolved from the VDA.

      3. Verify the network communication by pinging VDA from the Controller and vice versa.

      4. Verify the VDA and the Delivery Controller can communicate on the same port.

      5. Verify that any Delivery Controller host names in the Windows Hosts file are correctly entered and can be resolved. To do this, you can ping each host name or use nslookup from the command prompt.
