Citrix Studio – Full Admin but Permission Denied

July 21, 2018 0 By Amir Joseph Sayes

Credit goes to Richard Podd for finding the solution for this – Kudos Rich!

Environment

  • Citrix XenDesktop 7.15 LTSR CU2
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2012

Carl Stalhood suggested a solution which worked great for older versions of XenDesktop e.g. 7.5 where the issue had to do with the maxReceivedMessageSize parameter of the “Citrix.DelegatedAdmin.exe.config” file. His solution can be found here

Assumptions

The solution proposed here assumes that the [DAS].[Administrators] table have corrupted record(s) in the database.

Solution A – The quick way

The quick way involves removing all administrators directly on the database and reinstating yourself as admin.

  1. Get your SID using PowerShell, save it somewhere

  1. Load SQL Management Studio on the Database server
  2. Open a new Query window to the Site DB
  3. Run the following

  1. Reload Studio

Solution B – The longer way

Using the same logic from above, instead of deleting all Administrators from [DAS].[Administrators] and the rights from [DAS].[Rights], test recreating the records of those tables for one SID at the time and re-test Studio until you find the corrupted record(s).
