I feel pretty stupid posting this question here but for some reason I cannot figure out how to publish Active Directory users and computers in our Citrix PS3 environment. I have done it successfully previously but for some reason I am having a brain lag. I have already tried publishing dsa.msc to no avail. I get the error that it failed to start and The citrix server is unable to process your request to start this published application..

Any help would be great:-)

Ok so my brain fart is fixed. I was forgetting the mmc. The command is \windows\system32\mmc dsa.msc

This is the path we use for on Windows 2003 servers running 4.0 and 4.5:

Command Line:   C:\Windows\system32\mmc.exe  C:\windows\system32\dsa.msc

Working Directory:  C:\Windows\system32

I am attempting to do this now on a 2008 non-R2 server.  I have added the feature "Active Direcory Domain Controller Tools"

published the mmc as follows

c:\windows\System32\mmc.exe d:\microsoft\wtc.msc

Appears to work.

This really works for Xenapp 7.5

C:\Windows\system32\mmc.exe  C:\windows\system32\dsa.msc
