StoreFront – Setting A Receiver For Web Site As The Default IIS Page

Introduction

This article provides the steps to set a Citrix StoreFront Receiver For Web Page Site as the default page on Internet Information Services 7.5

Unlike Web Interface where you can select the site being created to be the default on the server, with Citrix StoreFront the modification is made by configuring a HTTP Redirect up on the IIS Server.

To set a Citrix StoreFront Receiver For Web Page Site as the default page on IIS perform the following steps :-

  • Logon on to the StoreFront server as an Administrative account
  • Open Notepad and paste the text below :-

<html>

<head>

<meta http-equic=”refresh” content=”0;url=Citrix\StoreWeb” />

</head>

<body>

</body>

</html>

  • Replace the /Citrix/StoreWeb with the name of your store

E.G. window.location=”Citrix/My-App-StoreWeb”;

  • Save the file in the C:\Inetpub\wwwroot folder of the server as a name of your choice with a html extension

E.G. StoreWeb-Redirect.html 

  • Open the Internet Information Services (IIS) Management Console
  • Click on the Server name in the Left Hand pane
  • Double Click on Default Document in the Centre pane
  • Click on Add in the Right Hand pane
  • When prompted enter the name of the html document you created

E.G. StoreWeb-Redirect.html

  • Click on OK
  • Open a Command Prompt and execute IISRESET

Repeat the steps on all StoreFront servers in the Server Group
