Citrix Storefront – Adventures in customization – Define a custom resolution for a specific application

Currently, Storefront does not grant the ability to define applications with specific resolutions.  In order to configure the resolution, Citrix recommends you modify the default.ica file.  This is terrible!  If you had specific applications that required specific resolutions, what are you to do?  Direct users to a variety of stores depending on the resolution required?! […]

Citrix Storefront – Adventures in customization – Prepopulate Explicit Logon Credentials

Citrix Storefront allows you to prepopulate the credentials for your Explicit Logon.  The explicit logon screen is generally seen here: And you can prepopulate the Username/Password fields.  If you don’t want to prepopulate the password, that’s fine too.  There are 3 properties and none are required.  Username, Password and Domain.  In order to prepopulate you […]

Citrix Storefront – Adventures in customization – Login via credentials in URL search query

If you use a 3rd party service to connect to your Citrix Storefront environment, you may want to “pass-through” credentials without using domain authentication or whatever.  This post illustrates how you can login to your Storefront environment using nothing more than a URL with your credentials embedded in them.  To enable this functionality, this code […]

Citrix Provisioning Server – PXE requests stop working

We use a bootable ISO in our environment to boot our VM’s to a specific set of PVS servers.  This ISO will vary by region enforcing that each target device that boots will be directed to their closest PVS server. However, we have 1 region that does not leverage this capability and this region was […]

Citrix Provisioning Services Reverse Imaging – 2017 edition

We’ve been trying to upgrade our Citrix PVS tools to version 7.13 and had some issues.  I need to reverse image so I can remove the software without dealing with the in-place upgrade procedure. So I decided this would be a good time to update my reverse imaging process.  This time I will only be using […]

Citrix Storefront – Adventures in customization – Change any ICA parameter

When I was originally exploring using the Citrix SDK to manipulate some ICA parameters, I found I couldn’t do it.  Using Powershell and passing a header parameter I could manipulate the ICA file to how I wanted, but when I attempted to do so with Internet Explorer, I found it wasn’t passing the header parameter. […]

Citrix Storefront – Adventures in customization – Customization breaks in internet explorer

I ran into a frustrating issue with my last post (changing the clientname based on the application).  The issue was, it wasn’t working!  Sometimes!  On some versions of IE!  On some Operating Systems! WTF. On Windows 10, IE11 or Edge it worked fine.  On Windows 7 or Server 2008 R2 with IE11 it worked…  SOMETIMES. […]

Citrix Storefront – Adventures in customization – Assign a custom clientname to an application

I have set a personal goal to avoid creating more than a single store for Storefront.  With that, I’ve been working on customizing Storefront for our organization and occasionally a problem comes up that requires a unwieldy solution…  Like creating multiple stores. An example of this is we have an application that configures itself based […]

Check for NUMA within a VM guest with Powershell

I have only tested this in VMWare, but it seems to work.  I have shamelessly stole the main code from here:   [crayon-5a1233d203e91231030487/] I was going to use this to detect NUMA and configure a network adapter RSS based upon NUMA configuration…   But I’m getting lazy and am going to ignore it.  But I […]

Remove Ghost devices natively with Powershell

We’ve been looking at using Base Image Scripting Framework (BISF) as our new preparation and personalization platform for our PVS farm.  In our current world we have a bunch of features and tweaks that are not apart of BISF so I’ve been writing some additions so that we achieve feature parity. One of the features […]
