Hi,

Here is my context:

  • SQL Server 2008 R2
  • Citrix XenApp 6.5

When I was installing my first XenApp server, I faced a wired “BUG”. Usually, I used to copy and past the credentials inside the XenApp interface and then initialize my database. With XenApp 6.5 I received this message:

After trying many things and settings it seems that even if I copy and paste my account credentials, I MUST type again at least one character inside the login and inside the password fields.

If I did that, I receive a beautiful message:

Hi,

I don’t know if you have curiosity to look at your log files. I rencetly launch this command :

tail -f /usr/local/centreon/log/centstorage.log

and I’ve received something like

26/5/2011 22:06:28 - ERROR while updating /var/lib/centreon/metrics/2510.rrd at 1306440385 -> 1 : /var/lib/centreon/metrics/2510.rrd: illegal attempt to update using time 1306440385 when last update time is 1306440385 (minimum one second step)

Hi,

Sorry for not updating so often, I was quite busy and as you know, there is only 24 hours in a day 🙂

Go back to our main subject, Merethis has released Centreon 2.2.0

Let-s try to update our ‘old’ config :

cd /usr/local/src
sudo wget http://download.centreon.com/index.php?id=153
sudo tar -xzf centreon-2.2.0.tar.gz
cd centreon-2.1.9
cp  www/install/sql/centreon/Update-DB-2.2.0-RC2.sql_to_2.2.0.sql www/install/sql/centreon/Update-DB-2.2.0-RC2_to_2.2.0.sql
sudo ./install.sh -u /etc/centreon

Beware and copy the sql file to a new one as there is an error in a filename. If you don’t, you’ll see version 2.2RC2 and not 2.2.0. This will be fixed in version 2.2.1.

Hi,

Here is a an NRPE script which will monitor your Citrix Licence server. The script is based on article CTX112594 which is quite old now (Oct. 2007).

If someone have a newer reference file, please post a comment and I’ll try to update my script.

I use “lmstat -a” command and then parse the result. Normaly, this command should work on your server. When you try it on your server and if you receive an error please check this post:

It’s finished. Continue reading »
