    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.

    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 domainusername). 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:

    Old

    citrix storefront connection issue trusted domains only command line old

    "{VSISHARE}_VSI_BinariesConnectorsSFConnect.exe" /url https:///Citrix/Store /user {domain}{username} /password {password} /resource "My Desktop"

    New

    citrix storefront connection issue trusted domains only command line new

    "{VSISHARE}_VSI_BinariesConnectorsSFConnect.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.
