Gourami Releases Free “Citrix Farm Cleaner” Utility


Cleaning up your Citrix server can be a time consuming task. Login on to every individual server takes a large amount of time.

This is why Gourami created ‘Farm Cleaner’, you first make a selection of the Citrix server to be cleaned. You proceed to clean the profile folder (‘documents and settings’), the printer spool folder, and the temp folder. Once this is done you get an overview of the actions taken.

Farm Cleaner first scans your Citrix environment for servers.  You are then presented with a list of the servers and the ability to choose:

  • To calculate the size of the ‘documents and settings’ folder for each server.
  • Delete the all subfolders of documents and settings.

Farm cleaner determines for each server its profile folder. By default a server has ‘c:documents and settings’ as a profile folder. Then Farm Cleaner determines the current user sessions for the server. Farm cleaner automatically avoids deleting profile folders for user who are currently logged in. Farm Cleaner allows you to specify a ‘skip list’ for profile folders which should be skipped. Folders like ‘default user’, ‘administrator’ etc. After the delete action, you are presented with an overview of the actions taken per server.

Farm Cleaner is in beta and free till May 2009.
