XenApp Server that ‘thinks’ it is a farm member?

 

If you have an orphaned Xenapp 6.5 server, or three you can from the server registry tell it to leave home, move on, get a life and try and participate in society.

First try the nice way.

  • Use XenApp Server Configuration Tool accessed through the Server Role Manager.
  • In XenApp 6.5 the server manager is accessed through Administrative Tools > Citrix.
  • Select Edit Configuration.
  • Select Remove this server from the current farm.

If this didn't work, force it along.

Set this registry DWORD value to 0
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Citrix\IMA\Status]
"Joined"=dword:00000000

Then force the console to leave:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Citrix\XenApp\ServerConfig\XenAppConfigConsole.exe /ExecutionMode:Leave

Now it can re-join the farm or you can create a new one again.
