Default NetScaler changes

Friday, July 7th, 2017

When deploying a NetScaler, Citrix recommend that you make these changes by default (https://support.citrix.com/article/CTX121149 ).

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.

GSLB Site IP Already Exists

Friday, May 4th, 2012

So, I’m building a Global Server Load balancing solution based on NetScaler and I made a mistake entering in the IP address for the local GSLB site. I deleted the site and then went to create a new local site but whatever I do the site creation fails with the following error.

 

It turns out that, when the site is created NetScaler records the GSLB local site IP in its list of IP addresses. The RTM version of NetScaler 10.0 (build 54.6) has a bug in that it doesn’t delete this IP address.

Bacause a Global Site IP already exists, you cannot “add” another one. So, if you need to change the IP address used for the local GSLB site, you just need to delete the IP address recorded here and you are good to go. TheĀ other choice it to update the firmware to the current version as this bug is fixed in build 54.7.

 

Securing NetScaler / AGEE interface

Monday, December 19th, 2011

By default when you install a NetScaler or AGEE the admin interface can only be connected to by HTTP. To configure the device to allow you to connect by HTTPS complete the following steps:

1) Connect to the devices configuration utility using a browser
2) Expand the Network node
3) Click on RPC
4) Select the NSIP (NetScaler admin IP Address)
5) Click Open
6) Tick the Secure check box
7) Click OK
