First step in the Citrix Provisioning Services process is to get the PVS 7.6 server installed. To do this complete the following:

1. Log in as an administrator onto the server that we will be using as the Citrix PVS 7.6 Server

In my instance this is WP-CTXPVS-V01. This is where we will be installing Citrix Provisioning Services and the PVS Console. In addition, this is the server that hosts and stores all of the captured PVS images, so you will need additional storage to be able to store these images

  1. Great article! I’m installing PVS 7.9 in a home lab for the exam. Very helpful in the PVS side of things since I don’t work with PVS in the work environment.

  2. June how on earth did you get 7.9 to install? It insists on a SQL server, it does not offer the option to install express.
