I am looking for advice on the following:
I have an issue within my Citrix VDI environment, that when VDI Desktops not in use are powered off for a pre-longed period of time, they automatically get placed into Maintenance mode. According to a Citrix article there is a DWORD to amend to be able do disable this behviour, which involves changing to a NEGATIVE value. I can't see how this is done as my undserstanding was a DWORD can only accept a 0 upwards:
Controls automatic placement of power-managed VMs into maintenance mode following repeated failures to register with a DDC.
If a VM is started-up by the broker service but fails to register after the period defined by the MaxRegistrationDelayMin setting (default 20 minutes), it is shutdown again.
The MaxFailedRegistrationsAllowed value defines the maximum number of times that this start-up, registration failure, shut down cycle is allowed to repeat before a subsequent registration failure causes the VM to be automatically placed into maintenance mode.
The default value of 2 means that if the VM fails to register 3 times in succession, it will be automatically placed into maintenance mode.
Setting MaxFailedRegistrationsAllowed to a negative value (0xFFFFFFFF) disables this behavior and prevents VMs from ever being automatically placed into maintenance mode.
Can anyone direct me on how to input a negative value?
