Citrix : The RPC server cannot be contacted on server .

Citrix : The RPC server cannot be contacted on server .

This issue has plague me infrequently over the last 3 – 6 months – a Citrix server in a PS4.5 farm would suddenly be unable to use the Citrix Access Management Console as when the discovery process was running it would report:

 The RPC server cannot be contacted on server .

The solution for this is simple. If the IMA Service has been restarted or terminated unexpectantly the Citrix COM+ components will sometimes fail to refresh. To resolve this perform te follwoing steps:

  • Terminate ConfigMgrSvc.exe’ using Task Manager
  • Re-open the Citrix Access Management Console and Run Discovery.
