Policies created with the Group Policy Management Console are stored in Active Directory and are propagated to XenApp servers using group policy processing. Policies created with the Delivery Services Console are stored in the XenApp data store and are propagated to XenApp servers by the Citrix IMA service. Policy settings are stored in the registry on each XenApp server. The Citrix Group Policy Modeling Wizard can be used to verify policy settings through a resultant set of policies. Alternatively, you might verify the policy settings on the XenApp server using the registry editor.

Verify Policy Settings with Regedit:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Policies/Citrix/IMA/Restart Options

The same settings are also stored under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/Wow6432Node/Policies/Citrix/IMA/Restart Options
