I recently ran into a bizarre issue with users not being able to launch applications from a very old Citrix Presentation Server 4.0 farm when trying to launch from Citrix Web Interface 5.4. They were getting the eminently unhelpful, “An error occurred while making the requested connection.” The Diagnosis In the web interface application logs, I noticed this: An error of type IMA with an error ID of 0x80000003 was reported from the Citrix XML Service at address (servername)
I ran into a little snag when executing some XenApp PowerShell commands. Certain commands like Get-XAFarm and Get-XAAdministrator would always give an “0x80060016” error. Here is an example and the fix: `PS C:\Windows\system32> Get-XAFarm Get-XAFarm : Error reading the current administrator data (0x80060016) At line:1 char:11 Get-XAFarm «« CategoryInfo : InvalidResult: (:) [Get-XAFarm], CitrixException FullyQualifiedErrorId : GetCitrixAdminType,Citrix.XenApp.Commands.GetFarmCmdlet` Typically this error code in Citrix indicates a problem with IMA.
