Workspace App for IOS – Error ‘EAP is activated and not supported on IOS’ when connecting through Netscaler Gateway

This article is intended for Citrix administrators and technical teams only.

Non-admin users must contact their company’s Help Desk/IT support team and can refer to CTX297149 for more information.

Users are unable to connect using Workspace App for iOS through Netscaler Gateway. The connection with Windows, Mac OS works with the Workspace app. Receiver for iOS also works correctly. If the manual configuration with the URL https://baseurl/citrix/store/discovery is used, the error message: “EAP is activated and not supported on IOS”. EAP isn’t used on this Gateway. If we use the automatic configuration with the baseURL the following error message is displayed: “Cannot add account” “All stores in the discovery document have been loaded”. In both scenarios it failes to add the account.

Error: “Your apps are not available at this time. Please try again in a few minutes or contact your help desk with this information: Cannot contact Store”

Command line installation (CLI) is not support for NetScaler URL. But, there are 3 options available that may be helpful.

1. Export store provisioning files for users https://docs.citrix.com/en-us/storefront/2-6/dws-manage/dws-manage-store/dws-export-file.html

2. Configuring NetScaler Gateway Store via GPO https://docs.citrix.com/en-us/receiver/windows/4-5/configure/receiver-windows-configure-app-delivery-wrapper.html#par_anchortitle_80df

3. Connecting to StoreFront by Using Email-Based Discovery http://docs.citrix.com/en-us/netscaler-gateway/10-1/ng-xa-xd-integration-edocs-landing/ng-clg-integration-wrapper-con/ng-clg-session-policies-overview-con/ng-clg-storefront-policies-con/ng-clg-storefront-email-discovery-tsk.html From the end-users perspective email discovery may be easiest. But requires support configuration of DNS entry and other configuration as noted in documentation. The export store provisioning file is easy to generate file in StoreFront, but requires user to open .CR file (it’s an XML file that is FTA with Receiver) and accept configuration (click “yes* button) and certificate accept dialog may display. So, it requires some user interaction and depends on end-user training even if the training is minimal. The GPO push of NetScaler URL (Configuring NetScaler Gateway Store via GPO) requires users to be connected to the domain to receive policy and configuration.
