I assume by the Citrix controller, you mean their DVS (Distributed Virtual Switch).  If you don't want to run it anymore, you're likely going to want to have OVS stop trying to connect to it over the management channel.  You may want to see if the DVS User Manual indicates a way to no longer associate your switch with that controller.  If not, we can share a script with you that will remove the configuration from XAPI.

That means you are using the default, which is standalone (fail-open).  If you don't need the controller connection, I'd recommend removing that rather than messing with the fail-mode.
