Citrix StoreFront Connection Issue – Trusted Domains Only

Citrix StoreFront Connection Issue – Trusted Domains Only

At Login VSI Support, we sometimes see tickets where customers are having trouble connecting the Login VSI Launcher to Citrix StoreFront. My colleague Jeffrey Hsieh already wrote a helpful blog about the most common Citrix StoreFront errors and how to avoid them during a Login VSI test.

Often I notice Login VSI customers are experiencing the “getting authentication token for resources” error because of the “trusted domains” setting. In this blog I will describe why this error occurs and how to quickly resolve it.

Error getting authentication token for resources

The error message in the screenshot above doesn’t contain any specific data on why authentication failed. If you are using Citrix StoreFront the first thing that I would check is the StoreFront webpage.

Does the webpage contain a domain list? If so, this is the most likely cause of the authentication issue.

Trusted Domains Only

As of Citrix StoreFront 2.6, it is possible to add a domain list to the logon form. This saves you time because when you log in you don’t have to write down the domain in the user name field (like domain\username). But this also means that Login VSI connection strings that add the domain to the username field are no longer accepted.

How to solve this issue

The solution is quite simple. In this case we only need to modify the connection string in the Command line field of the Login VSI Management Console:


citrix storefront connection issue trusted domains only command line old

"{VSISHARE}\_VSI_Binaries\Connectors\SFConnect.exe" /url https:///Citrix/Store /user {domain}\{username} /password {password} /resource "My Desktop"


citrix storefront connection issue trusted domains only command line new

"{VSISHARE}\_VSI_Binaries\Connectors\SFConnect.exe" /url https:///Citrix/Store /user {username} /password {password} /domain {domain} /resource "My Desktop"

Please note the separate /domain parameter. After making this small change, the Login VSI Launcher is able to logon the sessions successfully to your Citrix test environment.

Windows 10 Default File Type Associations and Login VSI

When Login VSI 4.1 was released, the majority of desktops were running Windows 7 and life was easy. We’d set the default filetype for an application and it would simply work. The default and industry standard workloads in Login VSI include launching and using Adobe Reader as part of the virtual user simulation. Because Login VSI doesn’t always know which version of Adobe Reader is installed, or where it’s installed, the workload relies on the file type association (FTA) for .pdf documents to be… Continue Reading

As many companies do, we use a CRM system. Recently, I have been getting complaints about our cloud CRM system, Microsoft Dynamics, being slow. I tried to investigate this by shadowing one of our users to see what was wrong. As expected, everything was fast. 15 minutes later, the same user reported slowness again. How could I investigate this without bothering the users? Continue Reading
