Troubleshooting NetScaler/AGEE Authentication

Posted by Anton Khitrenovich on August 29, 2011

Surprisingly, the best tool for troubleshooting NetScaler authentication process in not a log file, located somewhere in the depths of log directory. Instead, they have a named pipe “aaad.debug” in the /tmp directory. This is not a regular file, so you cannot download it or open in the editor. The correct way to work with named pipe will be to cat its “content” – either directly to the console or to some file.

root@...# cd /tmp
root@...# cat aaad.debug

The following great (and simple!) article in the Citrix KB explains it in-depth: “How to Troubleshoot Authentication with Aaad.debug”.
