Main issues in a XenDesktop environment integrated with Provisioning server:

1- Provisioning server and antivirus scanning
2- AD machine account password policy not configured (machine account password changes not disabled)
3- VM machines not mapped to AD names

A very good presentation (& video) which has a section about the common issues and troubleshooting can be found in this link:
