Creating virtual machines with Citrix Provisioning Server Streamed VM Setup Wizard
Citrix Provisioning Services 7.8 Streamed VM Setup Wizard assists in deploying a Provisioning Services streamed vDisk to a number of cloned virtual machines. This wizard creates VMs, associates PVS target devices to those VMs, and assigns a shared vDisk.
Before starting make sure that you have a VM template configured on your hypervisor that we will use for your PVS Target Devices.
Open Citrix Provisioning Services Console.
Click Next to get started.
Specify a IP address of one of your XenServers. Then type in your username and password.
You can choose either option. Create new accounts if the domain account you are logged in with has permissions to create computer accounts in Active Directory. If not, you can select import existing accounts that another administrator or engineer has prestaged for you.
New computer names to be created are first validated that they do not already exist as computers in Active Directory, VMs, or target devices.
Required count displays the number of virtual machines previously specified to be created. The Added count displays the number of validated entries added to appear in the list.
Review all configuration settings are correct, and then click finish to start creating virtual machines.
Open XenCenter and verify all virtual machines were created with a cache disk and any other configurations you had set on your template. Power on the virtual machines to check they boot up and stream correctly from PVS.
