How to change the load balanced hostname of Citrix Storefront

Citrix Uncategorized

If you’ve already deployed your multinode Storefront with an external Database etc and have specified the load balanced hostname you will know that there is no way of changing the url from within the management console to another.

Fear not however its a simple dig in powershell that will resolve this particular issue and this is how you do it.

Firstly you will need to logon to a storefront server and run powershell as an administrator.
Make sure as well that have set the execution policy to unrestricted by typing:

set-executionpolicy unrestricted
Then navigate to c:\program files\citrix\receiver storefront\scripts and run a script with the following arguments:

./SetHostBaseUrl.ps1 http(s)://newloadbalancedURL.local

If you close and reopen your storefront management console on that server you should see the changes reflected within the configuration, if everything is correct then propagate the changes to the other nodes in the storefront setup by right clicking on the server group and click Propagate Changes.
