Building a Windows 2000 server that is using Citrix Metafram FR3 and an Oracle database.

Error occurs at the point it reaches:
Starting IMA service...
Currently loading MfsrvSs.dll

The error message that occurs:
Error 26005. Could not start IMA Service in CTX_MF_IMA_StartIMAService State = 1

If I build it locally with an access db, it installs fine. Then when trying to use chfarm message, it again has IMA service errors and fails to join the farm correctly.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

after verifying data store validity and permissions, orphaned host records etc, we were not able to get this error to go away. We did a forced uninstall of citrix and then reinstall, still no luck. We opened a ticket with Citrix and they had no clue. We eventually gave up and reimaged the server - that got it working. So it looks like it was something on the box - not the data store. :(

I had this happen to me today. P*ssed me off to know end. Finally figured it out though. When it asks for the username & password to use for the data store access,try putting in your domain name and user name, like this: Domainname\username.

I hope this helps in your case, I'm using SQL, so it might be different. From what I've been able to gather, the message can be a result of not getting appropriate write access to the database.

As far as I remember I had the same problem during an unattended install.

I deleted the line "NETWORK=DBMSSOCN" in my .dsn file. That worked.
