Citrix PVS servers consuming multiple Cortex XDR licenses

L0 Member

Hi all,


We're having an issue where Citrix PVS servers running Cortex XDR consume a new XDR license every time they reboot. I don't fully know how PVS works, but essentially from what I can gather is upon booting up, it pulls a copy of an image from the master and loads into that, and these servers are configured to reboot every night - thus repeating the process.


Has anyone dealt with a similar issue? We are constantly over license capacity because of this and cleaning up 50+ Citrix servers every couple of days is something our team doesn't want to take on.

Hi JacobSchembri,


Check out this article it discusses installing the agent on non-persistant VDIs and similar.  You can set the VDI flag on install and prescan so that you avoid these sorts of issues.
