Citrix Audio Redirection Service is not running

The Citrix Audio Redirection Service is part of the Citrix Virtual Desktop Agent (VDA) software which runs on a single or multi session machine. It is responsible for redirecting audio over the Audio Virtual Channel to be used within the ICA session.

If this windows service has stopped running, users having a virtual desktop session to the respective session machine have no sound.

MetrixInsight for Citrix VAD/DaaS remotely monitors if the Citrix Audio Redirection Service is running, without the need of an agent on the respective session machine.
