Powershell Script to monitor Citrix XenApp and XenDesktop 7.x Health

by Stan Czerno October 11, 2019 10:07 CST
Like my previous script for monitoring a XenApp 6.5 Farm, this script is based on the scripts written by David Ott and Jason Poyner. I decided to add to these foundations and make it something that can be used throughout the day.

I created this as an easy way for Citrix Admins and others Admins and/or Users to get a quick look of the current XenDesktop and XenApp usage as well as the basic health of the XenApp Servers, Sessions, Latency, etc. I use it as an augment to Citrix Director. [More]

Windows Update failed to check for updates with error 0x8024002E, WU_E_WU_DISABLED Access to an unmanaged server is not allowed

All of a sudden my Windows 10 Workstations were not installing updates. The error message was "Windows Update failed to check for updates with error 0x8024002E". 0x8024002E equals "WU_E_WU_DISABLED Access to an unmanaged server is not allowed". So the clients were thinking my WSUS Server was an unmanaged Server? [More]

Recently we had an air conditioner failure in our Server Room, which made the server room's temperature rise. Because of this, the shared storage and other servers automatically shutdown due to high heat conditions, which had an adverse affect on many VMs. [More]

Powershell Script to correct or restart a XenDesktop 7.x Workstation VM if unregistered or if a launch error is detected.

by Stan Czerno September 1, 2017 11:43 CST
If you are like me and have Static, non-PVS, XenDesktop Workstation VMs that occasionally do not register, for whatever reason, I have a script for you. If you have Static, non-PVS, XenDesktop Workstation VMs that sometimes fail to launch, for whatever reason and your users do not get the "restart" feature or perhaps the restart feature doesn't always work, I have a script for you. If you do not have any Static VMs or any of these issues, I envy you. [More]
