Examples

EXAMPLE 1 Validate a NetScaler gateway STA configuration

$netscalerConfiguration = Read-STFNetScalerConfiguration –Path C:\NSG\Configuration.zip
$stasToUpdate = Test-STFSecureTicketAuthority -StaConfigurationObject $netscalerConfiguration

REMARKS

Returns a list of STA servers with a validation status indicating success or failure including incorrect STA authorities.

The STA url provided by NetScaler may not resolve on an internal network so will need updating to a StoreFront local address.

The STA authority must match that provided in the NetScaler configuration export.

EXAMPLE 2 Validate a NetScaler gateway STA configuration with incorrect Authority Id

$netscalerConfiguration = Read-STFNetScalerConfiguration –Path C:\NSG\Configuration.zip
$stasToUpdate = Test-STFSecureTicketAuthority -StaConfigurationObject $netscalerConfiguration

REMARKS

Returns a list of STA servers with a validation status indicating success or failure including incorrect STA authorities.

The STA url provided by NetScaler may not resolve on an internal network so will need updating to a StoreFront local address.

The STA authority must match that provided in the NetScaler configuration export. The expected output in the example shows both a valid and invalid STA url location.
