Citrix - Getting SSL 443 Proxy Denied Access Errors?

Jan
27

When troubleshooting XenApp or XenDesktop with Netscaler Gateway issues and SSL error 43, Proxy Denied Access, and you've ruled out the obvious fixes, don’t forget that both your Netscaler and Storefront (or Web Interface, if still in use) need to be using the exact same STA (Secure Ticketing Authority) servers. You cannot list different ones, nor should you have different quantities. They must match. Also, if using FQDN (Fully Qualified Domain Name) or if using the STA servers IP’s, use the same on both the Netscaler and the Storefront servers.

Computer Viruses in the Wild - Oh My!

Jan
18

If all of the malicious computer viruses that crop up each day aren't enough, recently, several new computer Viruses were declared to be in the wild. After some investigative efforts and further digging, one comes to realize that many of these viruses were "Lab Created." It seems that security firms and anti-virus software vendors are creating their own market. I mean, really? How in God's name did your "Lab Created" virus get out? Shouldn't you be operating on a closed system when you test computer viruses?

Great Seminar with Brian Madden, Dell and Nvidia

Jan
14

Attended a great seminar at Citrix Summit with Brian Madden, Dell and Nvidia discussing how VDI - Virtual Desktop Infrastructure has changed in the last 10 years and how the concept will affect the future. Brian's comment that VDI will only make up 10% of most I.T. infrastructures is 100% right on the money. Today, and for the near future, VDI is still too expensive for every use case.

Is There Such a Thing as Voice Mail Etiquette?

Jan
07

Pet Peeve Alert! Yes, this is one of those things that drives me crazy. Especially in the business world. What am I talking about? Voice Mail. Why don't people use it? I get calls all the time. That being the case, I may be on call with another customer and will receive a 2nd call. I am a courteous person and will continue my conversation with the person I am already on the call with and let the 2nd call go to voice mail. Except, and here's the rub, the other person calling? Doesn't leave a voice mail! Or worse, leaves a voice mail but doesn't say anything, just static.

Wait, what? The Cloud is dead? How can that be? I just got my first AWS account. How did this happen? Ok, so maybe Cloud isn't really dead. It's that the latest new thing is trying to push Cloud out of the way and it's called IoT. Internet of Things. Yep, you heard right. Here is the Wiki on it --> https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internet_of_Things

What you do today, will have a lasting impact on what happens tomorrow

Dec
07

I believe it was Jeff Bezos that said something like, "If we had a good quarter, it wasn't what we did that quarter but rather what we did right 3 or 4 years ago." Couldn't agree more. Building a business isn't about what happens today or even tomorrow. It's about what happens in the future, weeks, months and even years down the road. What we do today, will affect how customers perceive us in the times ahead of us. Treat your customers with respect. Give them a good deal when you can and always treat them fair on all deals.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Nov

Happy Thanksgiving to all of my customers, colleagues, partners, vendors and friends in the I.T. World! I am thankful for faster computers, servers, networks and storage and so much more. Just think back a few years ago and how much things have changed. Virtual networking, virtual storage, SSD drives and large curved monitors. It's an existing time to be working in this field. Thanks to my customers for trusting me, thanks to my colleagues for letting me learn from you, thanks to my partners and vendors for working great deals with me. I appreciate all of you!
