Hi all,

We have a bunch of users logging into a CITRIX session. When they login ... we want a KIX script to run a SQL query based on the remote computers workstation name. I have been using
@wksta but it seems to want return the name of the server.

Any thoughts??

It is doing just waht it is supposed to cuz the @WKSTA is the TS. There is at least one FAQ on the topic and a few hundred posts.

I think Les is referring to this FAQ . See the second post in the FAQ.

Hi Guys,

The %CLIENTNAME% Doesn't appear to work when I'm loggin in.
I can run it after I am logged in and I seems to work fine but I need to use it in a login script.

I even used a bunch of sleep commands. Still a no go.

Any help would be appreciated! thanks!

Faithful

%CLIENTNAME% is available for NT or better systems. Maybe you will want to use @wksta for your W9x systems?

ummm.... I need something that is backwards compatible all the way from Windows 95 ... connecting into a Citrix session.

But The fact still is .... If I am fully logged in and run the script it works ... but having this script as my login script it doesn't get the %CLIENTNAME%

HELP!!

Can you provide a little of your script, specifically where the error is occuring?

Is this a network GPO script, a local GPO script, a legacy logon script, or a Citrix usrlogon.cmd script? Does the script run sync or async?

This is a windows login script ... I'm not sure what the technical wording is nor do I know about the sync or async.
But you go into group policies to tell it to run this script as a login script.

Here is a snippet: look for %CLIENTNAME%


Code:

$connection = createobject("adodb.connection")

$ConnDSN = "DRIVER={MySQL ODBC 3.51 Driver};SERVER=172.16.1.183;DATABASE=ncives;USER=webadmin;PASSWORD=webadmin;";OPTION=3;"

$= $connection.open($connDSN)

? @SERROR


$rs = $connection.execute("SELECT workst.wSid FROM workst WHERE workst.pcName = '" + %CLIENTNAME% + "'")

? @SERROR

Use EXPANDENVIRONMENTVARS() to expand the environment variable before feeding it into the SQL statement and see also the DBCommand() UDF.

You might try this to see what values you get.

Code:
 

break on
? "Test 1: %clientname%"

? "Test 2: "
$clientname=CreateObject("WScript.Shell").ExpandEnvironmentStrings("%CLIENTNAME%")
$clientname

? "Test 3: "
$clientname=EXPANDENVIRONMENTVARS("%clientname%")
$clientname

? "Test 4: "
$output=wshpipe('%comspec% /c set clientname',1)
for each $line in $output
split($line,"=")[1]
next

Function WshPipe($ShellCMD, OPTIONAL $NoEcho)
Dim $oExec, $Output
$oExec = CreateObject("WScript.Shell").Exec($ShellCMD)
If Not VarType($oExec)=9 $WshPipe="WScript.Shell Exec Unsupported" Exit 10 EndIf
$Output = $oExec.StdOut.ReadAll + $oExec.StdErr.ReadAll
If Not $NoEcho $Output Endif
$WshPipe=Split(Join(Split($Output,CHR(13)),''),CHR(10))
Exit($oExec.ExitCode)
EndFunction

Allen, ... I tried your script and it was a no go ...

Is there something I need to do with this first?
EXPANDENVIRONMENTVARS()

Sealeopard do I just do something like this:

EXPANDENVIRONMENTVARS(%CLIENTNAME%)

?? Help!

Can you be more specific? What didn't work? What was the output? The script needs to be run on the Terminal Server in order for the CLIENTNAME var to exist.

Try running this on the Citrix/Terminal Server... I don't think you will get a value if you run it locally on your pc.

I am running it on the Citrix Terminal Server ... I login and the login.bat runs ... which is running login.kix script. Maps some network drives and tries to query the database.

No values for %CLIENTNAME% though.

Help!
