I recently had a single citrix user who began receiving this error when attempting to run an streamed application from one of my citrix farms.
I began researching the error and, as per the norm, the citrix user forums were less than helpful. They included the norms of "Install hotfix X from citrix, service pack Y from Microsoft" and the like.
I tell ya, I wish I had a dollar for every hotfix citrix said to install that in the end did not solve the issue... but I digress. 🙁
At any rate, I began looking at another application and noticed it was running without issue. Diffing further, I noticed that the successful application was setup to run on only one server. I configured the failing application to run on that server as well and, wow, it worked.
All of my servers are configured the same, so this was perplexing until I ran across a thread that mentioned corrupt profiles.
I deleted the users profile on the servers where the application was failing and everything began working properly.
This was odd as the issue was occurring for a while and I reboot the servers nightly and purge all user profiles so I would have thought that it would have cleared on its own.
If you run into this situation, I would highly recommend that you delete the users profile, it may save you lots of time in the citrix forums
Recently, one of our vendors needed the ability to Remote Desktop, RDP, to a specific system in our environment. The vendor connects via Citrix and we only want them to be able to RDP to the one system.

When I first got this error, I couldn't tell what was causing it. Just the day before everything was working properly, suddenly problems.
Thinking back, we recently had a user who wasn't seeing one of the printers, while looking at that issue, we noticed that the only available driver was for 64 bit systems. Continue reading Windows cannot connect to the printer, error 0x00000002
The Data Store Maintenance (dsmaint) utility is used to "Perform various configuration tasks for the IMA data store".
I have used this utility to change make changes to how a citrix server accesses the citrix sql database, to change the server that houses the database and to recreate a corrupted local host cache on a citrix server. Continue reading Changing Citrix Farm information with Dsmaint
Have you ever received a message of "The remote session was disconnected because there are not Remote Desktop client access licenses available for this computer"? or maybe something similar with Terminal Server instead of Remote Desktop in the message?
