How do I approach a change in network provider order?
Citrix XenApp 11 will add it self to the Reg_SZ HKEY_local_machine\system\currentcontrolset\control\networkproviders\order\Providerorder
It need to become the first in order to work properly with pass-through autentication.
Since the provider order can be unique for every machine I need some sort of dynamic fix for it to always be the first. Is there someone that can point me in the right direction? [:)]

Thank you.

I think it would be pretty straightforward. The registry value is a simple comma-delimited list so you should be able to reconstruct the list with the new provider at the beginning. I don't think the main protagonist's tools handle that natively so I think you'd need a scripted Custom Action.

Easily achieveable via vbscript.

This should get you going:


Change "LanmanWorkstation" in the vbs example with the name of your desired provider.

Remember to drop any Wscript. references from the example if running from a custom action!

Thanks VBScab and Jamei B!

I will do a CA that calls the script
I'll let you know how it works! :-)
