The Import Target Devices Wizard allows you to import target device information from a file. The target device information must first be saved as a .csv file, it can then be imported into a device collection.
text file can be created with a .txt
or Excel. It contains one line per target device, which is formatted as follows:
DeviceName = name of new target device
MAC-Address = MAC address of new device; such as 001122334455, 00-11-22-33-44-55, or 00:11:22:33:44:55
Type = 0 for production, 1 for test, 2 for maintenance.
The wizard can be accessed from the farm, site, and device collection right-click menus. If accessed from the site or collection, only those target devices in the import file that match the site and collection by name, will be included in the import list.
The wizard also provides the option to automatically create the site or collection using the information in the file, if either does not already exist. There is also the option to use the default collection’s device template, if it exists for that collection.
A log file is generated with an audit trail of the import actions. The file is located in:
C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\Citrix\Provisioning Services\log
