  2. 2. sachathomet.ch About me • Sacha Thomet, Switzerland • Working with Citrix technologies >10 years • Scripting with PowerShell for 18 months
  3. 3. sachathomet.ch Problem: I want to know the detailed health state of my PVS farm each day. (Not a monitoring like SCOM about the Server health, I want to have a short overview about the whole farm according to PVS.)
  4. 4. sachathomet.ch Solution A PowerShell script which runs daily with this output:
  5. 5. sachathomet.ch Prerequisites - Citrix Provisioning Services  (tested on 6.1, 7.1 and 7.6) - PowerShell 2.0 - Registered SnapIn for PVS
  6. 6. sachathomet.ch Script run - The Script checks each PVS Server, each vDisk and each Target device. - The script can be scheduled to run daily
  7. 7. sachathomet.ch My Test Environment - 2 Server on PVS 7.6 - 4 different vDisks - ~20 Target Devices Win7 XenDesktop 7.6
