Got Citrix Resource Manager? Try out Web Interface for Resource Manager!
Web Interface for Resource Manager is an ASP.NET 2.0 web application that contains several SQL queries to display useful information contained in the Citrix Resource Manager Summary Database. Web Interface for Resource Manager displays this information in a drill-down graphical and tabular manner.
What’s new in version 2.1?
Web Interface for Resource Manager version 2.1 includes everything in version 2.0, plus the following new features:
- Graphical Configuration Tool
In the past versions of Web Interface for Resource Manager, you had to manually edit the Web.Config file to set up your database connections and time zone overrides. This new graphical tool allows you to set up your options much like you set up an ODBC connection using Windows.
- Oracle Support

Just open the configuration tool, select Oracle as your Database Server Type and supply your TNS Service Name. One thing to note though, you will need to have the Oracle client installed on your web server.

What’s on the radar for the future?
- Using MFCOM and WMI to move reports beyond the Summary Database.
- Of course, more reports.
If all database tables are not owned by dbo, you will receive errors. For more explanation on this phenomenon, see this article.
If you do not properly set up your database authentication, you will not be able to view any reports. Please refer to this article for database authentication guidelines.
Note: Version 2.1 is only intended for Presentation Server 3.0 and above. This is due to the differences in the Resource Manager Summary Database schema. The MetaFrame XP Summary Database schema does not include the tables necessary to generate these new reports. Please use Web Interface for Resource Manager Version 1.1 for MetaFrame XP.
