Common Problems with Citrix Thin Clients

Problem with Citrix thin clientsProblem with Citrix thin clients. Citrix thin clients are susceptible to a wide range of problems. Some of the most common include:

What to remember when you encounter a problem with Citrix thin clients

When you encounter any of the issues above, always remember that although a Citrix thin client has two main parts—the hardware and the software—it’s highly unlikely for any of these issues to be caused by problems in the hardware. In almost all cases, the problem lies in the Citrix infrastructure itself.

Thinking of troubleshooting your Citrix infrastructure yourself? Forget about it

If you’re thinking of troubleshooting the Citrix infrastructure yourself, you might want to reconsider. Citrix environments are notoriously difficult to troubleshoot. That’s because a single environment can consist of several components. There’s Citrix Workspace, Storefront, Application Delivery Controller (ADC), Delivery Controller, License Server, Virtual Delivery Agent (VDA), Secure Ticket Authority (STA) server and so on.

Imagine this: Let’s say one of your users reports a slow login. You can’t just dive in and check a single part. You’ll want to know first:

After gathering all the necessary information, you’ll then have to check several phases in the Citrix logon process—brokering, virtual machine (VM) start, high definition experience (HDX) connection, authentication, group policy, log-on script or profile load phases.

Because of all this, it might take forever to troubleshoot a seemingly simple issue. In most cases, you’ll have no choice but to seek help from highly trained (and understandably very expensive) Citrix specialists.
