Configuring your Web Interface to work with RSA SecureID can be troublesome, I spent 2 days trying to figure how to make it work, here are the configuration steps:
Follow the steps mentioned in this CTX article: http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX126843
BUT, as usual there is a trick, completing the above configuration will not work, you will get the following error:
There was a problem with the RSA SecurID ACE/Agent. Check that the ACE/Agent is installed correctly and that the path to the file aceclnt.dll has been added to the PATH environment variable.
To solve this problem, first, follow the following steps:
- make sure to install the RSA Web Agent, the Web Agent must be installed as it will add some keys in the applicationhost.config that are needed by the IIS.
- Configure the Web interface not to send the domain name, from Explicit authentication, properties, Explicit/Two-Factor Authentication and uncheck (Send Domain and username to ACE/Server)
some additional troubleshooting steps are here (Like the PATH and secret key reset)

See you there,
if you have been reading carefully, Citrix released a document the article published here http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX128831 .
by that time, I knew internally that Microsoft didn’t support Client virtualization for OCS/Lync. although if you have been reading and even attended Citrix Xenapp 6 or Xendesktop training you will hear a lot about Lync/OCS client virtualization delivery with Xenapp or Xendesktop.
starting 14/4, Microsoft released a document that explains the supportability statement for Xenapp and Xendesktop and virtualization techniques that they support/no support.
the document is available here http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyID=f865e66d-1163-46ef-ba9c-d585376dfbae.
in summary Microsoft now supports client virtualization through full desktop or application delivery/streaming with some considerations “check the document for more details” it is so amazing to see that Microsoft finally released such a support statement and changed the fully rigid statement of the big NO before.
