    Hi

    First of all, I would like to thank you very much for creating ConfGen – this has definitely made our lives a lot easier! I would never be able to create a wyse config without this.

    We have 2 Citrix farms – one legacy web interface site and a new Storefront site. I need to run both in parallel for a period of time until migration is completed. I am using SelectServerList=PNA \
    Description=”New Farm” Host=”https://storefront_url” \
    Description=”Old Farm” Host=”http://web_interface_url/config.xml”

    This works fine to switch between both environments. The problem I am facing is that auto launch only works on the storefront site and not on the WI site. I have tried adding both old and new desktops to the auto launch list as below but only new is launched.

    PnliteServer=http://storefront_url/config.xml ReconnectAtLogon=2 ReconnectFromButton=2 AutoConnectList=”Controllers:Desktop XA7 $S3-6;OldFarm:Desktop XA5″

    I have also tried adding the old farm server to the PnliteServer list with no joy. I face the same problem on wnos.ini and xen.ini. Any ideas how to get desktops from both farms to auto launch?

    Many Thanks,
    Saaj

    Try this:

    SelectServerList=PNA \ 
    Description="New Farm" Host="https://storefront_url" AutoConnectList=”Controllers:Desktop XA7 $S3-6″\ 
    Description="Old Farm" Host="http://web_interface_url/config.xml" AutoConnectList=”OldFarm:Desktop XA5″

    Thanks, I shall try this and let you know.

    So do I take off the auto launch from the below line?

     PnliteServer=http://storefront_url/config.xml ReconnectAtLogon=2 ReconnectFromButton=2 AutoConnectList=”Controllers:Desktop XA7 $S3-6;OldFarm:Desktop XA5″

    You should remove the whole line as you already have defined that in the Select statement.

    Thanks very much CF, this worked great for us 🙂

    One last thing.. How do you enable to option to cancel shutdown while the timer is running? We have specified AutoSignoff=yes Shutdown=yes Shutdowncounter=10 Unit=second but this does not provide the option to cancel the timer and abort the shutdown. I remember being able to do this in the previous versions.

    Which firmware version are you using?
    You will need 8.3_013 or higher to get this feature.
    And you have to enable it with

    Privilege=None EnableCancel=yes

    Thanks CG.

    Our S10 are on 7.1 which is the latest we can go up to on those and our Xenith Pro 2’s are on 2.1.

    We used to be able to do this on the older firmware though.

    That’s the only way to do this.
    I doubt it was working in older firmware.

    Sorry I got it mixed up. It works with the old and new firmware when Privilege=High.

    I guess there is no way to get it to work with Privilege=None on the older firmware then?

    Thanks.
