Citrix and vCentre

Citrix, vmware

Annoyingly our venctre broke recently meaning our Citrix clients wouldnt boot which had the knock on affect users couldnt logon.

To easily check the connection status of citrix and vcentre, you can run the following PowerShell command on a Citrix delivery server (or whereever Citrix PS is installed):

This is what it looks like when its broken, notice the State:

PS C:\Program Files\Citrix\Desktop Studio> Get-BrokerHypervisorConnection


Capabilities                           : {PowerOn, PowerOff, SuspendResume, Re
                                         et...}
ExplicitPreferredController            : True
HypHypervisorConnectionUid             : a17e1707-98f2-43e6-8d5b-42302ccbae53
IsReady                                : True
MachineCount                           : 564
MaxAbsoluteActiveActions               : 2
MaxAbsoluteNewActionsPerMinute         : 15
MaxAbsolutePvdPowerActions             : 100000
MaxPercentageActiveActions             : 10
MaxPvdPowerActionsPercentageOfDesktops : 50
MetadataMap                            : {}
Name                                   : KIL VMware vSphere
PreferredController                    : BohemianGrove\CitrixServer01
State                                  : Unavailable
Uid                                    : 1

Fixing vcentre and rebooting the citrix server it then looks like this:

PS C:\Program Files\Citrix\Desktop Studio> Get-BrokerHypervisorConnection


Capabilities                           : {PowerOn, PowerOff, SuspendResume, Res
                                         et...}
ExplicitPreferredController            : True
HypHypervisorConnectionUid             : a17e1707-98f2-43e6-8d5b-42302ccbae53
IsReady                                : True
MachineCount                           : 564
MaxAbsoluteActiveActions               : 2
MaxAbsoluteNewActionsPerMinute         : 15
MaxAbsolutePvdPowerActions             : 100000
MaxPercentageActiveActions             : 10
MaxPvdPowerActionsPercentageOfDesktops : 50
MetadataMap                            : {}
Name                                   : KIL VMware vSphere
PreferredController                    : BohemianGrove\CitrixServer01
State                                  : On
Uid                                    : 1
