Boy it’s been a long time since the last update!
This is too annoying not to share though. I had a couple of Citrix DDCs (7.9) which we needed to move to a new subnet. Simple job really, right? Nope!
After moving them, I tried opening Studio (as you do), only to find it was stuck on ‘expanding’ on both servers.
Tried installing studio on a local machine, stuck on ‘assessing configuration files’.
No error message, no log, no nothing. Enabled studio logging – nothing. Logged network traffic – nothing. Moved it back, and hey, it works again. Moved it to the new subnet and it’s dead.
Uninstalled, unregistered and reinstalled one of the DDCs – nothing.
After repeated bashing of my head toward the desk (as you do) – Procmon. Procmon says…. nothing. But, it keeps reading “C:\Program Files\Citrix\StudioAppVIntegration\SnapIn\Citrix.AppV.Admin.V1\CtxAppVCommon.dll.config”. Strange, but that file doesn’t really contain any config.
So in a crazy hail-mary; I move one DDC back, open Studio, remove an App-V server connection I had configured (which happened to be inacessible, but from both subnets so that shouldn’t matter).
Guess what? It fucking works.
There’s not enough coffee in the world for these scenarios. I should get a freaking Citrix medal of honor.
