  The following registry tweaks and system configurations apply to Microsoft Windows Server 2003 with Citrix MetaFrame Presentation Server 4.0. The goal of this section is to detail the basic tweaks needed to tune Windows for a Citrix and Terminal Services environment. If you would like to create a new Forum topic then please submit it to dbrown@dabcc.com, otherwise you have total control to debate existing tweaks and add new ones.

 

If you are looking for Citrix performance, security, and usability ‘tweaks & tips' for your Microsoft Windows Server 2003 with Citrix MetaFrame Presentation Server 4.0 servers, then look no further. Methodology in a Box 4.0 ‘Tweaks Section' is out! The goal of this section is to detail the basic Citrix tweaks needed to tune Microsoft Windows 2003 Server for a Citrix MetaFrame Presentation Server 4.0 and Terminal Services environment.

This release also marks the first release of the new Methodology in a Box Service. What is this ‘Service'? Good question, when I first created MIAB, I released it as a draft for two reasons, 1) get the info out and 2) to get feedback. Since then Methodology in a Box has become much bigger than the sum of its parts, it's received over a half million downloads and has become an integral part of any Citrix deployment. I have received feedback from all over the world and together we made it a must read for anyone deploying Citrix MetaFrame. Because of this success, I had an idea over three years ago that we just now have the resources and time to make happen. Let me try to explain.

I was sitting watching a TV Show about the Internet and on TCP/IP. It talked about how IP has grown through a serious of RFC's to become to de facto protocol that we all depend upon to move data around the Internet. What is an RFC? Basically it is process for creating a standard on the Internet. New standards are proposed and published on the Internet, as a Request for Comments. The proposal is reviewed by the Internet Engineering Task Force and once approved it is made the standard. I thought to myself, why can't we do this for the Server based computing world? Why can't MIAB and DABCC provide this service? Well, Methodology in a Box is designed to be just that. The new Methodology in a Box is this service and the new Tweaks Section is our first attempt to make this happen, but we are not stopping there.

This being said, what we have done is created a basic document, a proposed series of RFCs, and a forum where we can all debate each tweak (RFC) and where you can submit new ones. If the community agrees then it will be “certified” as an official tweak. This is the new process we will use for all of the content found in Methodology in a Box, from how to install Citrix, to how to lock down your system through GPOs and other resources, to how to customize Citrix Web Interface. As always, I feel that by doing this, we can continue what we started in May of 2002 and that is to build the Citrix Deployment Bible, and we are already off to a great start!!!
 

 
 

Today, the Methodology in a Box Server consists of the following documents and forums:

We are also committed to release a new section each week until we have release them all!

Thank you,
DB
