Negotiating capabilities...

Negotiating capabilities...

Negotiating capabilities...

1.) My Citrix farm has two servers in the same Citrix Zone (same IP Lan

I added a new server to this farm, but the only difference is that this server is located in my DR site (different IP Lan, and as such - it shows as a different citrix zone.

The problem comes when I add this server to one of my published applications. The minute I make this new server available to a published application...all new connections (clients) to the citrix farm get this message:

Connection established. Negotiating capabilities.

The message, at the client side, stays on the screen for a few minutes and then it disappears. I've looked a server logs and I don't see any significant information.

I searched the forums and I found a couple of threads that really can't help with my issue, so I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions.

I don't think it's a licensing issue because I created a test application (mainly just a desktop) on the new server and I noticed that I can log on (as a regular user) to the new server, but I also noticed that my citrix client (v.8x) crashes frequently.

RE: Negotiating capabilities...

It does sound like a licensing issue.
Have you looked at the event logs on that new server?

In my past experinces when the client "acts" like that it usually tends to be a licensing issue.
I would go to the new Citrix server and add the parameters for your TSLicense server in the registry.

Since the server is in a different subnet it might be a good idea to input that TSLicense server information.

Hope that helps.

RE: Negotiating capabilities...

Nods head. Install the terminal server licensing manager software onto your citrix server and make sure it can talk to your license server.

A perspective from the other side!!
