HyperV 00 300x214 Fastest way to update PVS Target Device Software With Hyper V

The Citrix Provisioning Services 5.1 Service Pack 2 has been released and the most important fix would be Hotfix-9112: Client hangs when using XenServer 5.0 / XenServer 5.5 running a network intensive application.

Hyper-V Direct VHD Boot is my favorite when it comes to updating Citrix Provisioning Services Target Device Software. Below you’ll find the update route and a step-by-step picture guide for the update process.

  1. Download and extract Citrix Provisioning Services 5.1 SP2
  2. Download and install Free ISO Creator
  3. Create a ISO image of the extracted PVS51SP2 folder and copy to external hard drive
  4. Copy production vDisk to external hard drive
  5. Connect external hard drive to your Microsoft Hyper-V Server
  6. Create new Hyper-V VM, add Legacy Network Adapter and attach the PVS51SP2 ISO image
  7. Start the virtual machine and uninstall Citrix Provisioning Services Target Device software
  8. Install new Citrix Provisioning Services Target Device software from the mounted ISO image
  9. Bind to your network card and shutdown
  10. Copy the updated vDisk back to your PVS Server and follow normal procedures

I would also recommend you taking a look at previous post Citrix Provisioning Services for Citrix XenApp Best Practice and Prepare a Provisioning Services Private vDisk for Shared vDisk
