  2. Hello Laurent,

    We do it only after the patchday, if we have applied some. Not patched machines
    sometimes run about 6 month or longer. Basically there is no recommendation
    about from MS as far as i know.

    Best regards

    Only when required. For example after applying Patch Tuesday updates.
    Otherwise, never.

    I believe, though, that in the case of Citrix, most admins will reboot
    on some kind of schedule. With older versions of MetaFrameXP, it was at
    least weekly, if not daily. Lately, though, with XenApp, it's not as often.
