Citrix IMA issues

When experiencing problems with the Citrix IMA (Independent Management Architecture) Service, the following DSMAINT commands often solve IMA issues.

Note: the DSMAINT commands should be executed when the IMA services is NOT running.


DSMAINT CONFIG /user:CTXuser /pwd:CTXpw /dsn:”X:\Program Files\Citrix\Independent Management Architecture\MF20.dsn”

You should replace CTXuser and CTXpw with the appriopriate user and password which was user to create the Citrix DS.

Replace X:\Program Files\… with the appropriate path to MF20.dsn.

You can also periodically perform DSCHECK /CLEAN. This deletes inconsistent records from the data store. See Citrix article CTX107800 for more info on DSCHECK.

Applies to: Citrix Presentation Server 4.0
