"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

No planning or understanding how PVS works.

That would happen

Most of the issues deal with inconsistent settings between PVS servers. In the script I wrote to check the health of a PVS farm, I look for the following between all servers:

Compare the Advanced Server Items settings
Compare the Configuration Wizard settings
Bootstrap settings
DisableTaskOffload setting
PVS services
PVS services failure actions
Which vDisks are candidates for merging
Empty device collections
vDisks not associated with any target device
Bad Streaming IP addresses
Misc registry items (I check 13 registry keys)
vDisks configured for Server-side caching
