Somethings does not change name, the audit server is still called “NS” 🙂 I ran into a few problems during installation of ADC / NetScaler Audit Server Utilities on Linux (on a Ubuntu 64bit, uname -a 4.15.0-65-generic #74-Ubuntu SMP Tue Sep 17 17:06:04 UTC 2019 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux) I got the following error: /usr/local/netscaler/bin/audserver: No such file or directory And there were not really any more pointers to go for, and the docs are old-skool citrix style which means other tools have to be put in use.
I was debugging on why ssllabs.com reported F sometimes on a CSVIP, but only sometimes, i knew i had to disable a certain cipher to get rid of it (POODLE vulnerability) There is this nice list from openSSL that maps to IANA names.
