Desktop Director is a very useful tool, however, there is one very serious drawback, which cannot be overlooked. Every time when user log in, a domain name must be entered manually.
Unilke StoreFront or WebInterface, in Desktop Director we cannot use gui to configure the logon domain – there is no such option at all. Using metod described below we can automatically pre-populate domain name for Citrix Director logon page to simplify logon process.
1. Log in to the server console where Desktop Director is installed and navigate to folder C:\inetpub\wwwroot\Director
2. Make a copy of LogOn.aspx file
3. Edit LogOn.aspx file.
<asp:TextBox ID=”Domain” Text=”Domain.local” readonly=”true” runat=”server” CssClass=”text-box”></asp:TextBox>
Where domain.local is your actual domain. In my case I use LAB as a domain name.
7. Repeat this procedure on all servers installed with Desktop Director
