PVS Retries – Script 1

As PVS retries can indeed cause all sorts of degradation to the user experience (i.e. applications freezing or overall slowness) and it is not something that is readily exposed on any of the Citrix monitoring/management consoles (even the PVS console does not show that info, or Director for that matter), […]

Disappearing Citrix Policies – Scripting a fix

Not sure how many of you have experienced Citrix Policies disappearing from the AppCenter console, on XenApp 6.5. I know it is an issue as many posted similar occurrences in the Citrix Support Forums. Not sure if it is a problem with XenApp/XenDesktop 7.6 on the FMA architecture as the […]

Citrix PVS Image Copy

If you built your Citrix environment properly, you should have by now at least a test environment and a production one. And if PVS is part of your deployment, the same applies to it. A development PVS and a production one. If you do not see why you would need […]

XenApp Load Script

This is another post on XenApp 6.5 scripting. And yes, again, the reason for that is a ton of people are still on XenApp 6.5 and not everyone has a budget for all the fancy and pretty monitoring tools out there. Not saying they are not good. They are great. […]
