• Citrix XenApp/XenDesktop 7.8+ Documentation Script Update Version 2.24

    Version 2.24 18-Apr-2019

    • If Policies parameter is used, check to see if the PowerShell session is elevated. If it is, abort the script. This is the #2 support email. From an earlier update, which apparently no one saw:
      • Version 2.16 16-May-2018
        • Added a Note to the Help Text and ReadMe file about the Citrix.GroupPolicy.Commands module:
        • Note: The Citrix Group Policy PowerShell module will not load from an elevated PowerShell session.
        • If the module is manually imported, the module is not detected from an elevated PowerShell session.

      I am trying to use this xd7_Inventory_V2_signed.ps1 script. I am running from my local machine as I would like the document output in word. I have installed studio, i have done all the other prereqs, with the policy psm1 etc.

      When I run the command:
      WARNING: The Citrix Group Policy module Citrix.GroupPolicy.Commands.psm1 could not be loaded

      Please see the Prerequisites section in the ReadMe file (https://carlwebster.sharefile.com/d-s4b07f1b891548ddb).

      Citrix Policy documentation will not take place
      VERBOSE: 05/03/2019 15:28:11:

      It also fails to find my DC:
      VERBOSE: 05/03/2019 15:28:12: Could not find the version information on “my dc name”

      Any suggestions?

      Please and thanks!

        You are either running from an elevated PowerShell session or you have UAC turned off, which makes every PowerShell session elevated. I updated the script to detect this. Also, the Citrix.GroupPolicy.Commands module will not install, nor can it be detected, from an elevated PowerShell session.
