Citrix Provisioning


The announcements in this article are intended to give you advanced notice of features which are being phased out so that you can make timely business decisions. Citrix monitors customer use and feedback to determine when they are withdrawn. This list is subject to change in subsequent releases and may not include every deprecated feature or functionality.

The following features are deprecated. This does not mean that they are removed immediately. Citrix will continue to support them up to and including the next Provisioning Services version that is part of the next XenApp and XenDesktop Long Term Service Release (LTSR). Deprecated items will be removed in a Current Release following the next LTSR. Alternatives for deprecated items are suggested where possible.

For complete details about product lifecycle support, see the Product Lifecycle Support Policy article.

The vDisk Properties screen will be updated to remove the following options from the Cache Type field: Cache on hard disk.

Note: The cache on hard disk parameter will be removed due to lack of ASLR support. 7.12 Use one of the other available options.
