Sep 14, 2016
  • When using UEFI, virtual machines provisioned by the XenDesktop Setup Wizard will always get a Windows file entry added by UEFI as the first item in the boot list; this issue has no operational impact on PVS. [#635768]
  • PVS imaging wizard versions 7.7 and 7.8 cannot connect to a PVS 7.9 server. [#620466]

  • If you upgrade a PVS server and select Join existing farm the configuration wizard prompts you to upgrade the database even though it was already upgraded.
