XenDesktop 5.x – Desktop Director Web Page Loading Delay
I recommend that all that implement Citrix XenDesktop 5.x implement this fix to get a better performance when using Desktop Director.
The first Desktop Director user to log on, after IIS restarts, experiences a delay of over one to two minutes before the initial Desktop Director web page loads.
