Configuring Citrix Web Interface with RSA SecureID , Notes from the field

March 7, 2013 2 comments

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)

next Wednesday I will speak at Microsoft hero event about VDI building blocks with Microsoft, Citrix and Netapp solutions.

the session will be level 300-350 going from design to implementation, the session content will be:

No Marketing stuff , it is All Hot technical materials. so Drink a lot of Coffee :), The session is for Arabic language speakers

– Introduction to Desktop Virtualization and what does it mean.

– Benefits of VDI for corporates

– Building Blocks for VDI:

    • Understand Hypervisor Requirements, Hyper-v, SCVMM
    • Understand Connection Broker Requirements Xendesktop
    • Understand application delivery requirements (Terminal Services and Xenapp)
    • Understand VDI Type and OS Delivery Types.

– Get your VDI on the right track:

  • Sizing your Hypervisor correctly Including Memory, Processor and Storage.
  • Designing Operating System Delivery
  • Sizing your application delivery infrastructure
  • Sizing remote access and network
  • Storage optimization matrix for VDI deployments (De-duplication, Thin Provisioning and Snapshots)
  • Design backup and restore

– Lab for end to end solution implementation

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.
