We are currently running ArcGIS 10 in our company through Citrix as well as installs on user workstation. We always seem to have niggling problems with Citrix hence local installs.
- Poor display of smoothed grids in Citrix showing very blurry but then perfect display when exported to a PNG
- Mapped drives not being able to connect but once the session is closed down and re-opened and it's fine again
- ArcScene has terrible performance when it has a couple of stacked surfaces to render
- ArcGIS Extension licenses not always being released when switched off in extension dialog (user has to shut down their session)
There are lots more issues that can be found on the forums of course and I have read the strategy documents too but I'm looking for more detail on how to actually deploy it without these niggling problems!
But obviously as a concept it is great as it saves so much time for IT and managing the application centrally is the way forward, etc. But the users are suffering at the moment.
So my question is what are peoples opinions with deploying ArcGIS through Citrix?
Have people had "strategists"/Citrix experts to come in and show us how to set it up specifically for ArcGIS to get the best performance and display?
Basically the users should not see a difference between ArcGIS on their machines and ArcGIS on Citrix. Otherwise it won't get used.
