Changing SQL account, password XenApp 6.5

 

If you have problems connecting to the XenApp servers via the AppCenter it could be the test account you are using had its password expire? It did for me, this is the useless error and how to fix it.

1

Look into the event log for more information

2

If it is the password use the dsmaint command.

Here is how, open CMD as administrator and go to:

3

CD “C:\Program Files (x86)\Citrix\Independent Management Architecture”

The command to run is:

4

dsmaint config /user:yourDomain\yourAccount /pwd:yourPassword /dsn:"C:\Program Files (x86)\Citrix\Independent Management Architecture\mf20.dsn"

5

Restart the IMA Service

 

 

 

Changed SQL Server?

If you are changing the SQL server, you will need to edit your MF20.DSN with the new server name:

“C:\Program Files (x86)\Citrix\Independent Management Architecture\mf20.dsn

If you are changing the SQL logon name change this in the DSN too.

Here is a sample:

[ODBC]
DRIVER=SQL Server
DATABASE=MyFarmDataBaseName
UID=MyUserAccount
APP=Citrix IMA
SERVER=MySqlServer
Trusted_Connection=Yes
