This topic describes the necessary steps to deploy Citrix PVS with the Carbon Black Cloud Windows 3.7MR1+ sensor.
With the Windows 4.0+ Sensor, if a non-designated parent that has a different hostname is used to mount vDisk in Private or Maintenance mode for a Citrix golden image, the sensor does not go through a reregistration process and continues to work using its existing device ID.
The Windows 4.0+ Sensor includes the following configuration property that you can change by editing cfg.ini. The default setting is
CitrixPVSModeCheckEnabled, true, “Enable/Disable citrix pvs device mode check for auto reregister.“
- Put the vDisk into Private mode and access vDisk from the Designated Parent Device.
- Run the following command to install the Windows 3.7MR1+ sensor:
msiexec.exe /q /i <Sensor Installer Path> /L*v msi.log COMPANY_CODE="XYZABC" CLI_USERS=<UserGroupSid> GROUP_NAME="<NAME Virtual Policy>" AUTO_REREGISTER_FOR_CITRIX=true< Sensor Installer Path> : Replace this value with the location of the sensor MSI file; for example,
c:\tmp\installer_win-64-184.108.40.2061.msi.CLI_USERS= UserGroupSid: This parameter enables RepCLI usage. The value is the Security Identifier (SID) of the user account/group that will run RepCLI commands .GROUP_NAME: Indicates the policy name to apply.Note: To establish a golden image-clone relationship with 3.8+ Windows sensors for Citrix VDIs, add both the
AUTO_REREGISTER_FOR_VDI_CLONES=1parameters to the command line.
- Shut down the Designated Parent Device.
- Put the vDisk into Shared mode.
- Start Citrix clone devices with vDisk in Shared mode.
- Verify that Citrix clone devices are visible in the Carbon Black Cloud console.
Important: Do not use clone devices to access vDisk in Private mode. Always use vDisk in Private mode or Maintenance mode from the Designated Parent Device. Do not perform manual reregistration on the Parent Device.
Remove any previous BAT scripts or other reregister mechanisms that you have set up. Leaving such mechanisms in place can cause sensors to reregister more than once.
