Default NetScaler changes

Friday, July 7th, 2017

When deploying a NetScaler, Citrix recommend that you make these changes by default ( ).

The Windows Scaling one was particularly useful on a customer site recently where connections over CAG would drop due to window size on the TCP stream not being negotiated with the ASA filrewall correctly. Enable windows scaling and the issue went right away.

Creating remote powershell session

Monday, November 25th, 2013

Simply enter the command

Enter-PSSession –ComputerName <computer name>

This will let you control a single computer remotely, if you want to control more than one computer simultaneously then enter a command similar to the below

Invoke-Command -ScriptBlock { Get-EventLog System -Newest 5 } -Computername compname1,compname2,compname3

Where the command between the braces is the command you would like to run against the remote servers

Don’t forget, you can still enter commands against a remote computer with WinRM enabled (it’s enabled by default in Windows 2012) by entering the command:

winrs -r:<servername> <command to run>

<command to run> could even be powershell.exe to create a remote powershell session !
