Any reason you're using PVS and not the more streamlined MCS?

I have gone through that doc but no luck.

I was going through trainsignal videos and hence used PVS. Will you be able guide me on MCS as well?

Of course.

PVS is better for the larger implementations, but MCS isn't that far behind it now.

There's a decent intro/primer here:

Maybe a shot in the dark, but if you're importing a group from PVS via XenDesktop is there a machine in that group that has the wrong MAC address?

I have checked and recreated the machines with correct MAC. So I dont feel its something to do with wrong MAC.

Really the only thing I can think of is enabling Logging and Parsing it.  The error messages are horrible for XD.  The logs can be long and a lot to parse... which may/may not lead you to the issue.

I've deployed Streamed PVS images without that error, so I'm not sure what it is.  Have you tries a new catalogue or group?  Maybe just a small test one?

What about the logs that Krazy asked for?

It'd be a real help if you could provide requested information, otherwise we're all stabbing in the dark somewhat.

Also anything in the windows logs on the DDC or PVS servers?
