CUGC User Share: XenApp/XenDesktop Tech Update w/Daniel Feller (02-09-17)

Problem with Restart Schedule after upgrade?


After upgrading from 7.9 XenApp environment to 7.12 the delivery group restart schedule is no longer working if Notification Message is selected.


Complete the following steps:

  1. Download the private LC6766. (Contact Citrix Support to request this private).
  2. Connect to a test VDA 7.12 and stop the service Citrix Desktop Service.
  3. Navigate to “C:\Program Files\Citrix\Virtual Desktop Agent”.
  4. Rename the existing BrokerAgent.exe to BrokerAgent.old and copy the private version of BrokerAgent.exe into the folder.
  5. Restart the Citrix Desktop Service.


Do not send any message while reboot schedule.
Note: If we are sending the messages then message will pop up however no reboot to the machines where session is connected.

First setup with NVIDIA Tesla M10

Got today 2 NVIDIA Tesla M10 card to be used in a HP DL380 G9 servers at a customer.

The idea is to start with one card in each server with XenServer. To get the most out of the GPU, we will use Nvidia GRID technology (vGPU). You can read more about this here.

(Creds to the customer for very clean datacentre)

The results and details of setup comes later.
