Ah. Okay.  Yea I'm just not sure how to make it non-adish.

There are several tools listed, maybe if I break up the content to different sections so it does not seem all Citrix related.

Yes.  VPX.

With that said, be conscious of the throughput.  Regardless of model HTTP Compression is
Up to 0.75 Gbps for all VPX models

Great article! Quick question though, where can I find these settings to be able to set them? I have random user losing sound on their speakers and I cannot figure out why.

There are a couple.  I would start with looking at VMWare Labs OS Optimization Tool

Deploying a Microsoft Access application in a Citrix environment is not difficult but takes a few steps. However, Citrix system people are often of little help, as they typically know next to nothing about Access. The script provided here will take you a long step deploying successfully.

Nice article, voted yes.   I think this article can be improved if the script were rendered in pieces-parts code blocks, with helpful text explanation on what the script does, so that experts can get an understanding and manipulate if they have to.

This article describes how to update the XenDesktop Master Image Pooled machine types using PowerShell.

These commands are tested on XenDesktop 5.6 and VMware environment.

Like I said in my pervious article, “PowerShell is a very powerful scripting language that can help automate many aspects of maintaining and deploying a XenDesktop environment.”  This saves a lot of time for the Citrix administrators.

Whenever we run a powershell script or command first thing that we should do is to load the Citrix Snapins. If you do not have the Citrix snapins download it from http://www.citrix.com/downloads

Asnp Citrix.*

Open in new window

This loads the Citrix-specific PowerShell modules. (Asnp means Add-PSSnapin).

Now let’s go with the steps to update the MCS Catalog with the updated master image.

Step 1: Modify the Master Virtual Machine or new virtual machine with the required changes.

Step 2: Take a snapshot of the modified virtual machine. 

New-HypVMSnapshot this command provides a mechanism for creating a new snapshot of a virtual machine given a Host Service provider path to a VM.
 
New-HypVMSnapshot -AdminAddress $XDServername -LiteralPath 'XDHyp:\VMPATH\VMNAME.vm' -SnapshotName "$filename" -SnapshotDescription "$description" 

Open in new window

Step 3: Now to update the Catalog with the latest snapshot that was taken in the Step 2.  To get the last snapshot name use the command Get-ChildItem using the following syntax:
 
(Get-ChildItem -Recurse -path 'XDHyp:\HostingUnits\Path of the MasterImage.vm').PSPath 

Open in new window


This command will list all the snapshots that are taken for the master VM.
To get the path of the Master VM use the command mentioned on Step 4.
