How to determine the type and where the Citrix datastore is located


Investigate the properties of C:\Program Files\Citrix\Independent Management Architecture\MF20.dsn.

The following is an example of an MF20.dsn file from a server using an Access data store on the local machine:

For a MS Access database datastore:

[ODBC]

DRIVER=Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)
PageTimeout=5
MaxBufferSize=2048
FIL=MS Access
DriverId=25
DBQ=C:\Program Files\Citrix\Independent Management Architecture\MF20.mdb

For a SQL database datastore:

[ODBC]

DRIVER=SQL Server
UID=useraccount
Address=MySqlServer,1433
Network=DBMSSOCN
DATABASE=myfarmdb
WSID=MyMfServer
APP=Citrix IMA
SERVER=MySqlServer

If the MF20.dsn file is not present, it means the server is doing an indirect connection to the data store. Check the value of server with the direct connection to the registry under:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Citrix\IMA\PSServer

Check the MF20.dsn on that server.

For Access data stores, only one server in the farm (the one hosting the data store) shows imaacces.dll under: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Citrix\IMA
