Citrix Delivery Controller – Services not starting

Encountered an issue where the Citrix related services on Citrix Desktop Delivery Controller 7.18 would time out during startup. This is on Windows Server 2016 in Azure.

Seems like it is a known issue that .Net does some startup things, and can mess up the initial service start times.

Looks like I solved it by changing all the Citrix services to Automatic (Delayed start).

Used PowerShell, like this:

Get-Service |
Where-Object {$_.Name -Like “Citrix*”} |
Foreach-Object {sc.exe config $_.Name start= delayed-auto}

No direct way of doing Automatic (Delayed start) with PowerShell, so had to use sc.exe.
