VMware: Citrix Provisioning Target boot can take more than 5 minutes on vSphere 4.1

July 18th, 2012 2 comments

I’m currently working on a project with Citrix Provisioning 6.1 build 1082 / XenApp 6.5 RP1 running on a VMware vSphere 4.1 build 721871 cluster, we discovered some boot “time” problems at the target VM’s, some of our Citrix XenApp 6.5 targets take more then 5 minutes to get past the bootstrap portion of the boot process.


Solution:

BUG0321533: Booting in a VMware environment can take more than 4 minutes to get past the bootstrap portion of the boot process. This has only been reported using ESX 4.1

Download hotfix: here

1. From Provisioning Services server machine, backup the following file: ARDBP32.bin

For Windows 2008 this file is located in (default) "C:\ProgramData\Citrix\Provisioning Services\Tftpboot".

2. Copy the following file included in the hotfix folder to the "Tftpboot" sub-directory indicated above:

ARDBP32.bin

3. Back up the following files from the Provisioning Services-installation-folder\TSBboot folder (Default is C:\Program Files\Citrix\Provisioning Services\TSBboot):

TSBBDM.BIN

4. Copy the following files from the hotfix folder to the Provisioning Services-installation-folder\TSBboot folder (Default is C:\Program Files\Citrix\Provisioning Services\TSBboot):
