The Citrix Health Assistant is a Windows tool to help Citrix administrators troubleshoot configuration issues in a Citrix environment. V1.1 release of the tool focuses on Virtual Delivery Agent (VDA) registration issues for XenDesktop or XenApp products, and V1.2 release added session launch related checks (on VDA only).  Such registration or session launch issues can lead to disabled desktops, disconnected sessions and unusable environments. This tool automates a series of health checks to identify possible root causes for common VDA registration and session launch issues. The tool is graphical UI based but also supports command line commands.
