A couple months ago I made a post about customizing the cloud gateway.The real name for that product is Citrix Receiver for Web and is part of the StoreFront Express. Digging deeper in the Receiver for Web I found that it is really easy to modify the appearance of that site. You don’t have to change all the original files. Only just one. Terry Duchastel has made a very clean and easy how-to about branding the site. I’ve borrowed some elements from that post and put it in this simple CSS He has made a couple of links in the logon page for helpdesk purpose. That part is skipped (because I don’t want to change the default html structure). The only thing with that type of branding, is that it will be gone when an upgrade is performed. (more…)

(As of April 2012) I want to point out that this blog is how-to configure the StoreFront and the CAG (VPX) without the Self Service Plug-In (that blog comes later). What I’m going to show is how users connect to the environment with the help of a webbrowser (So only the Storefront StoreWeb site). (more…)
When creating a new vDisk, there is a question if you want the file to be dynamic or fixed. When choosing dynamic, the size of the VHD file would grow when demanding more space. Until the size has reached the size of the disk. In my environment I have a dynamic vDisk from 60GB. The VHD file size is 30GB. When deleting files from the vDisk this size doesn’t shrink. (more…)
