Release Notes for Citrix ADC 13.0-87.9 Release

This release notes document describes the enhancements and changes, fixed and known issues that exist for the Citrix ADC release Build 13.0-87.9.


  • This release notes document does not include security related fixes. For a list of security related fixes and advisories, see the Citrix security bulletin.

What’s New

The enhancements and changes that are available in Build 13.0-87.9.

Authentication, authorization, and auditing

Load Balancing

  • Support to secure script arguments for user monitors

    A new parameter, -secureargs, is added to the “add lb monitor” command. This parameter stores the script arguments in an encrypted format instead of plain text format. You can secure sensitive data related to the scripts for user monitor using this parameter, for example, user name and password. Citrix recommends you to use -secureargs parameter instead of the -scriptargs parameter for any sensitive data related to the scripts. If you choose to use both the parameters together, the script specified in -scriptname must accept the arguments in the order: <scriptargs> <secureargs>. That is, you need to specify the first few parameters in <scriptargs> and the rest of the parameters in <secureargs> by maintaining the order defined for the arguments. Secure arguments are applicable only for the internal dispatcher.

    [ NSLB-7310 ]


  • Enhancements to include the severity level when sending SNMP Trap messages

    The Citrix ADC VPX appliance now includes the severity level in the SNMP trap messages as a variable bind. Use the following command with the severityInfoInTrap option:

    • set snmp option -severityInfoInTrap ENABLED

    When this option is enabled, the trap severity level will be included in the SNMP trap message.

    [ NSNET-21603 ]


  • Configure the slow start threshold parameter

    The Citrix ADC appliance now supports configuring the slow start threshold parameter which solves the following issues.

    • The Dynamic Round Trip Time (RTT) is high for TCP traffic processed by the Citrix ADC appliance.
    • The TCP congestion control protocol variant, Nile, which considers the RTT for congestion control does not operate. The congestion window configured is much higher, and it is mapped to the slow start threshold of Nile.

    For more information, see TCP configurations.

  • ADFS proxy profile can be configured in a cluster deployment. The status for a proxy profile is incorrectly displayed as blank upon issuing the following command.
    show adfsproxyprofile <profile name>

    Workaround: Connect to the primary active Citrix ADC in the cluster and run the show adfsproxyprofile <profile name> command. It would display the proxy profile status.

    [ NSAUTH-5916 ]


  • A Citrix ADC appliance might crash if the Integrated Caching feature is enabled and the appliance is low on memory.

    [ NSHELP-22942 ]

Citrix ADC SDX Appliance

  • On a Citrix ADC SDX appliance, if the CLAG is created on a Mellanox NIC, the CLAG MAC is changed when the VPX instance is restarted. Traffic to the VPX instance stops after restart because the MAC table has the old CLAG MAC entry.

    [ NSSVM-4333 ]

  • On a Citrix ADC SDX GUI, displaying the NTP servers can freeze the user interface if the NTP configuration file (ntp.conf) has only spaces in any of the lines.

  • The gateway home page is not displayed immediately after the gateway plug-in establishes the VPN tunnel successfully. To fix this issue, the following registry value is introduced.

    HKLMSoftwareCitrixSecure Access ClientSecureChannelResetTimeoutSeconds
    Type: DWORD

    By default, this registry value is not set or added. When the value of “SecureChannelResetTimeoutSeconds” is 0 or not added, the fix to handle the delay does not work, which is the default behavior. Admin has to set this registry on the client to enable the fix (that is to display the home page immediately after the gateway plug-in establishes the VPN tunnel successfully).

    [ NSHELP-30189 ]

  • Sometimes, the Citrix Secure Access agent in machine tunnel only mode does not establish the machine tunnel automatically after the machine wakes up from sleep mode.

    2. Add a system user, or change the password of an existing system user, and save the configuration, and
    3. Downgrade the Citrix ADC appliance to any older build.

    To display the list of these system users by using the CLI:
    At the command prompt, type:

    query ns config -changedpassword [-config <full path of the configuration file (ns.conf)>]<!--NeedCopy-->


    To fix this issue, use one of the following independent options:

    • If the Citrix ADC appliance is not yet downgraded (step 3 in above mentioned steps), downgrade the Citrix ADC appliance using a previously backed up configuration file (ns.conf) of the same release build.
    • Any system administrator whose password was not changed on the upgraded build, can log in to the downgraded build, and update the passwords for other system users.
    • If none of the above options work, a system administrator can reset the system user passwords.
