hi,

i am using Citrix XenDesktop with Provisioning Services. Hypervisor of choice is MS Hyper-V 2008 R2. SCVMM 2008 R2 is being used as the management server.

When i try to provision multiple virtual desktops pointing it to SCVMM, all the virtual desktops get created across all virtual hosts on the Hyper-V cluster.

is there a way to control which Hyper-V host to be targeted during the virtual desktops provisioning process rather then getting all the new virtual guests spread across all hosts ?


regards

after some research i ended up getting a confirmation from MS and Citrix stating that it is not possible at this point in time to control which host is going to get all the provisioned virtual desktops when provisioning vdesktops using Xendesktop provisioning tool.
