if you require any assistance with Citrix XenApp feel free to give me a shout and i'll assist where possible (for free). I'm currently trying to get involved in any many support/general issues as possible to further my personal development on this product. and the best way is to get involved in real life examples

Could you see if you can work out how to keep the xenapp console working after you change the local admin password....
Not a major issue at the moment for me, but one a fresh XA6.5 install with 2008R2 it wouldn't work after the local windows admin account password was changed!?!?
This would be because when XA was installed, when asked to connect to the SQL server, the username and password entered there were the ones of that particular account. IMA configured itself to use them to query the data store. When changed, IMA no longer connects and DSC will no longer perform a proper discovery. (as it canít authenticate because of an improper password)
The correct way to do it would be to set up a service account (with password set not to expire) and use that account to configure the IMA <Ė> datastore connection.
Now, the way out is for you to do this:
- stop IMA
- from an elevated command prompt run: dsmaint config /user:USER /pwd:PASSWORD /dsn:C:\program files(86)\citrix\independent management architecture\mf20.dsn
- A message of success should be displayed on the screen.
- start IMA
The USER from above must have public and db_owner rights on the database. Will work with just public but will encounter some issues if db_owner is missing.
If itís a domain user just use domain\user.
hope the above helps
Sounds spot on. I'll be sure to make that change on our installs.
