NetScaler 10.1 Custom Theme

Custom theme for NetScaler is a quick win to maximum appearance on the Access Gateway login page. With custom theme, the changes you made will persist on NetScaler reboot.

To edit/create a new theme, using winscp or filezilla connect to NetScaler and take a backup of:


on your local backup copy, start making changes:

put your pictures in /media
put your css changes in /css
put you html adjustment in index.html
put localised string in /resource/en.xml

Once the adjustment is done, upload the files back to /netscaler/ns_gui

To record the changes as a custom theme do the following:

mkdir /var/ns_gui_custom
cd /netscaler
tar -zcvf /var/ns_gui_custom/customtheme.tar.gz ns_gui/*

this creates customtheme.tar.gz in the /var/ns_gui_custom folder

Now you can login to NetScaler, navigate to Global Settings and change the theme to custom
all done!

To make adjustment to this custom theme, you do:

edit /var/ns_gui_custom/ns_gui
rm /var/ns_gui_custom/customtheme.tar.gz
cd /var/ns_gui_custom
tar -zcvf /var/ns_gui_custom/customtheme.tar.gz ns_gui/*

that's it
