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


Some users cannot print to HP LJ 1022 printers from Citrix


Using Citrix auto created printers some users can print to LJ 1022 printers. Other users cannot print to the same printers.


Use the recommended HP LJ 6L PCL5e driver (included in OS) instead of the HP host based driver. See previous post.

Citrix: not able to print – no default printer

You cannot print from within a Citrix session, because you cannot set a default printer.

Possible solutions:

1) Logoff from Citrix session(s)

2) Reset security on TS profile (on TS profile, Properties, Security, Advanced, Check Replace permission entries on all child objects with entries shown here that apply to child objects and click OK). Logon to Citrix session and check.

3) If not OK, completely reset TS profile.
