Unable to connect to the Datastore

Unable to connect to the Datastore

Unable to connect to the Datastore

(OP)
There is a connection to the datastore, I've just ran the DSN file to test database connection on the SQL server every connection was fine. This is the error message received via the system log Event viewer.

**The Citrix MetaFrame XP Server failed to connect to the Data Store.  Error - IMA_RESULT_DBCONNECT_FAILURE The
database is down or there is a network failure.** Event id 3621. Anyone with ideas please.? Thank you very much in advance.

RE: Unable to connect to the Datastore

chfarm and reconnect that way?  Perhaps a bad username?

Actually there is a connection to the datastore, this is what beats me...Howelse can you verify that you are not connected to the Datastore ?..

RE: Unable to connect to the Datastore

Stop and start the IMA service, if it starts you are if it don't you are stuffed.

Arguably the best cat skinner around !

RE: Unable to connect to the Datastore

honestly, do a chfarm and reconnect yourself.  

I had a similar issue and did that to resolve the problem.

What is the effect of running chfarm on ica sessions, wouldn't this disconnect them ?

oh by the way I've restarted the Citrix server, the IMA serveice starts. of course I could have restarted the service alone..... I'm thinking of going the path of chambers suggesstions...

RE: Unable to connect to the Datastore

You're running chfarm to re-establish a connection to the database, nothing to do with ICA sessions.  OF course do this when no one is on the server otherwise you'll be getting calls :)

RE: Unable to connect to the Datastore

hey ctxuser, what ever happenned with this?

RE: Unable to connect to the Datastore

(OP)
Actually it does have something to do with ICA connections when using the chfarm utility. I haven't made any changes with our live servers first, neither will I do this. What I intend doing is to first take images of these servers and then use that image on our test lab,  use the chfarm command then see the results b4 approaching these live servers. Let's remind ourselves that live servers serves users especially when we don't have any redundant server available....

RE: Unable to connect to the Datastore

No redundant servers?  if I were you I would shoot for redundant servers first before a test server stricly devoted to Citrix.  Also, make the change during off hours so users aren't affected.  In either case, let us know what happens. Good luck!

RE: Unable to connect to the Datastore

Chambers,

I was having the same issue and I followed your suggestion to do the chfarm and that worked like a champ.

Thanks for the post.

Pete
