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

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?
