Citrix Provisioning services – Target device does not boot at the first attempt

Recently i was involved in a project where Citrix PVS 7.6 was used with Hyper-V. Issue was, when target devices were not booting in the first attempt; it would just get hung in a black screen. Target devices had to reset to boot again.

It was ensured that all the best practices on the NW layer were taken care of. Ref (http://support.citrix.com/article/CTX117374)

Checked on offloading settings & TCP/IP fine tuning didn’t help. Finally had to change the basereachable timeout value in streaming┬áNIC of PVS server.

Run the following command in the PVS server

netsh interface ipv4 set interface <pvs interface number> basereachable=600000

Hope it helps!!
