Citrix Director Domain Field Modifications

One of the things that annoys me about the configuration for Director is that you don’t have any way to set the logon domain.  I know it’s not a big deal but in a single logon domain environment I would like to not have to waste time typing either domain\user or filling out the Domain field.  Silly?  Sure!  But fixable nonetheless.  I poked around with my very limited ASP knowledge and what I found is that you can pre-populate that domain field to save yourself time and aggravation.  The following was taken from the Director version that ships with 7.1, but the same principal applied with the 5.6 Desktop Director.

1) Navigate to the inetpub\wwwroot\Director folder and look for LogOn.aspx

Logon ASPX file


2) Edit this file (I used notepad) and search for the line: TextBox ID=”Domain”

3) On that line find: (this);”></asp:TextBox>

4) Insert your domain info between ><



5) Save that file back and go to your Director login.  Your domain field is now populated!




A couple points… first this is obviously an unsupported mod from Citrix.  Second, any updates you do will probably revert this file.  And if you have multiple Director servers/sites you will need to do this on each!
