Citrix Provisioning

Known issues and considerations

This Citrix Provisioning release includes the following new issues and considerations:

  • The vDisk Properties dialog sometimes display the wrong cache type. To see the correct cache type, in the Citrix Provisioning Console tree, select the vDisk Pool, or select the store, where the vDisk exists, and check the vDisk row. [PVS-9638]

  • When you try to delete an empty collection in Citrix Provisioning in azure and on-premises environment, Citrix Provisioning console displays the Azure VM deletion screen. [PVS-9746]

Previously reported issues

  • Citrix Provisioning does not support BIOS boot for Windows Server 2022. [PVS-9079]

  • Citrix Provisioning does not support accelerated network in an Azure target device. [PVS-8871]

  • When you report a problem using the Citrix Provsioning Console, the SOAP Service must be run as an administrative user. [PVS-9429]

  • Windows 11 is only supported on VMWare ESX 7.0 Update 2 (and later). [PVS-9057]

  • Windows 2022 HyperV Gen 1 (BIOS) VMs are not supported as targets. [PVS-9079]

  • Windows 2022 as a host has limitations. Microsoft SCVMM 2019 for Hyper-V does not support Windows Server 2022 as a host. The Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops Setup wizards and Stream VM wizard cannot create targets when using Windows Server 2022 as the hypervisor.

  • (Release 2109 and earlier) When streaming to Linux target devices, if the firewall is enabled on the OS, the UDP ports 6901-6902,6910-6930 must be opened manually on the target device. [PVS-9162]

  • The Citrix Virtual Desktops Setup Wizard creates targets then boots them to format the cache drive. This process occurs quickly. Sometimes, a VDA reaches a state where it fails to shut down correctly. This process occurs because the VDA is initializing while the Citrix Provisioning Service and the provisioned device service simultaneously finish formatting the cache drive, then shuts down. To resolve this issue:

  1. In the virtual disk registry key, HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Citrix\ProvisioningServices, create a DWORD called RebootDelaySec.
  2. Set a value, delay-to-shutdown, in seconds using a decimal or hexidecimal value. [HDX-14474]
  • When using the Streamed VM Setup Wizard to create VMs on a XenServer host while specifying 1 vCPU, the VM is created with 1 vCPU and a topology of 2 cores per socket. Creating VMs in this fashion prevents the VM from booting, while displaying the following error message in XenCenter: “The value ‘VCPU_max must be a multiple of this field’ is invalid for field platforms:cores-per-socket. As a result, XenCenter fails to boot the VM because the topology and vCPU configuration are incompatible. [PVS-1126]
