- Alert Only
- Sends an error message to the Event log but takes no other
action. The test continues to run, and if it subsequently successfully passes,
an event is sent to the system log. This recovery action is the default for all
tests except the Citrix XML Service test.
- Remove Server from load balancing
- Excludes the server from load balancing. Clients do not attempt
to make new connections to this server through Load Manager. However, existing
connections are maintained, and attempts are made to reconnect disconnected
sessions. You can make new direct connections to the server; this enables you
to try to correct any problems. To prevent possible farm-wide outages, this is
the default recovery action for the Citrix XML Service test.
Note: To restore one or more servers to load balancing, use the
enablelb command-line utility.
- Shut Down IMA
- Shuts down the Citrix IMA Service. After this happens, tests
continue to run but failures will not trigger events to be sent to the Event
log until the Citrix IMA Service is up and running again.
- Restart IMA
- Shuts down and then restarts the Citrix IMA Service. After this
happens, tests will run but failures will not trigger events to be sent to the
Event log until the Citrix IMA Service is up and running again.
- Reboot Server
- Restarts the server. An alert is triggered before the server is
restarted. After the system is restarted, the tests resumes.
Note: If the Recovery Action list contains the entry Action ID followed
by a number, this means that Citrix supplied a new action through a hotfix.
Although you applied the hotfix to the selected server, you did not apply it to
the computer on which the Access Management Console or Delivery Services
Console is running. When the hotfix is fully applied, a meaningful name for the
new action is added to the list.
