Fixes from Replaced Hotfixes

  1. When HDX MediaStream for Flash (client-side) is enabled, a Flash content URL received by the server might a) not be resolvable by the client device or b) be resolved to the wrong content server. To resolve this issue:

    • On XenApp 5 for Windows Server 2003 and Windows Server 2008:
      Load the included HdxFlash-Server.adm template and configure the client-side content fetching base URL rewriting rules as follows, using PERL regular expression syntax:

    To rewrite to (or a similar URLs), use a rule such as:

    value name: http://(.*.)(*)
    value: http://2

  2. This enhancement reduces delays observed while editing printing policies and modifying their priorities.

  1. [From DSCXAGPMx100WX64001][#236934]

  2. While creating session printer policies for certain types of printers, the following error message can appear: "An item with the same key has already been added."

    [From DSCXAGPMx100WX64001][#237952]

  3. This enhancement is a part of the XenApp Printing Optimizations. The Printing Optimizations improve the user experience and printing speed by reducing the printer bandwidth required. For more information, including system requirements, required components, and known issues, see XenApp Printing Optimizations in eDocs, the Citrix Product Documentation Library.

  4. Attempts to add Windows policies to a GPO fail if Citrix policies are added to the GPO first. With this fix, policies can be added in any sequence.

    [From DSCXAGPMx100WX64002][#252042]

  5. The console displays the Session Printer policy incorrectly if the name of a shared printer configured on the print server starts with 0 (zero).

    [From DSCXAGPMx100WX64003][#245718]

  6. Access control policy filters containing asterisk (*) wildcards for Access Gateway farm name and Access condition fail.

    After applying this fix, edit or replace affected filters in order for the policy engine to refresh the data it has cached.

    [From DSCXAGPMx100WX64003][#255020]

  7. New XenApp policies and changes to existing XenApp policies are not saved if policies are being created or modified from multiple consoles by different administrators at the same time.

    With this fix, the latter console produces an error message when trying to save new or modified policies. To enable this fix in its entirety, you must also install a server hotfix that contains Fix #256226.

    [From DSCXAGPMx100WX64004][#256226]

  8. In large farm environments, the Group Policy Modeling wizard can take an unexpectedly long time enumerating domain controllers and eventually become unresponsive.

    [From DSCXAGPMx100WX64004][#259144]

  9. When the "Auto-create client printers" policy is enabled, the Citrix Group Policy Modeling wizard displays "Citrix.ICA.PrintingPolicies.AutoCreateClientPrinters" rather than "Auto-create client printers."

    [From DSCXAGPMx100WX64004][#LA0005]

  10. Configuring the printer policies might take up to eight minutes per policy change. As a result, the console might become unresponsive while changing the printer policy.

    To enable this fix:

    1. Install both a Delivery Services Console hotfix (DSCXAMX600W003 or its replacement) and a Group Policy Management Console hotfix (DSCXAGPMx100WX86005; DSCXAGPMx100WX64005, or their replacements) that contains Fix #257255.
    2. Migrate the old printer policies to the new printer assignment policy using a PowerShell script, available for download in Knowledge Center article CTX132168. However, some of the new printer policies might not require any action.

    [From DSCXAGPMx100WX64005][#257255]

  11. The MMC can exit unexpectedly while adding a printing-related policy.
