Reciever Auto Login As a Different User Account


Randy Foust

Question

Is it possible to get the Citrix Reciever to auto-login as a user account other than the current logged on Windows account?

 

We're looking at having student login as their account for access to their shared storage, but giving access via XenApp desktop icons in Windows for different apps based on which room they're logged in at. Different computer labs are to have different software packages available.

 

Thank you.

If you mean desktop credential passthrough when you say auto-login, then it must be the credentials of the user logged into the PC. However, if you have a computer account for each lab, you can write a PowerShell script to auto-login the user explicitly with the credentials of the lab.

The second option you mentioned sounds like what I'm looking for. I'm not sure how you would PowerShell script the login to the receiver since I can't find any switches for credential passing to the receiver, or registry values for that either. Do you happen to know of any/either of those?

 

Thank you.

I have now tried launching the receiver via PowerShell with different credentials and that did not work. It still prompted for username and password even though I installed with SSO checked.

 

The ICA method I haven't been able to work either.

 

Maybe we can do this via AD groups to allow access to different apps to acheive what they are wanting.

If you want to authenticate with different credentials, then you do NOT want to be using SSO.

Your PowerShell script needs to log on explicitly with the username/password needed.

Here is example script that will log in, auto-launch an application and then logoff,:

You would only need/want the portion that does the login, and should comment out or delete the rest.
