    Downloading and Installing The Hotfix

    Notes:

      • The user must have administrative rights to the server.

      • The server install consists of the console and server installation programs

      • You must uninstall before using any of the installations included in hotfix

      • Included with the target installation programs are the binaries so that they can be used to replace the present binaries without reimaging the target device.

    Downloading the hotfix:

    1. Download the hotfix package from the Hotfixes and Service Packs page of the Citrix Web site at http://www.citrix.com.

    2. Copy the hotfix package to an empty folder on the hard drive of the server you want to install the hotfix from and unzip the file.

The hotfix folder includes the following subfolders:

      Console
      Device\Target32
      Device\Target64
      Server

    These directories include the installation application for the Provisioning Services console and server and the target device software updates for 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems.

    Server Installation Instructions

      1. Make sure that the Provisioning Services Console and Provisioning Services Configuration Wizard are closed.

      2. Uninstall Provisioning Services console and Provisioning Services Server from Programs and Features

      3. Run the appropriate installation for the operating system.

      4. When installing the Citrix Provisioning Services server you must run the configuration wizard after installation.

    Server Uninstallation Instructions

      1. Uninstall Provisioning Services console and Provisioning Services Server from Programs and Features.

      2. Reinstall the Provisioning Services 6.1 console and server software from the original Provisioning Services 6.1 ISO image.

    Target Device Installation Instructions

    For new target device images:

      Use the appropriate installation program for your target device operating system (32-bit/64-bit), then create a new vDisk.

    For upgrading existing production vDisks:

    Note: This procedure does not require reverse imaging the vDisk.

      1. From Provisioning Services Console, make sure no version of the virtual disk (vDisk) to be updated is currently in "Maintenance" access mode.

    2. Right-click on the vDisk in the device collection or vDisk pool, then select "Versions..." from the context menu. The "vDisk Versions" dialog appears.

    3. Click "New". A new vdisk version entry displays in the dialog with "Access" mode set to "Maintenance" and the update "Type" method set to "Manual".

    4. Select one target device as Maintenance device. Assign this Maintenance device to boot from the vdisk with access "Type" set to "Maintenance".

    (Note: Active devices booting to the vdisk are not affected by the hotfix deployment because they are streamed from the Production version of the vdisk.)

    5. Boot the Maintenance device to the Maintenance vdisk version; Launch Windows Explorer and browse to "Windows\System32\Drivers" directory of the Maintenance vDisk version, backup the following file according to the windows version:

        CvhdbusP6.Sys Windows Server 2008 / Windows vista or later

        Bnistack6.sys Windows Server 2008 / Windows vista or later

    CvhdbusP52.Sys Windows 2003 SP2 / Windows XP SP2 or later

    CvhdbusP51.Sys Windows XP 32 bit only

    Bnistack.sys Windows 2003 SP2 / Windows XP or later

    CNicTeam.sys Any version, if present

      6. Copy the following file from the selected sub-folder included in this Hotfix to "Windows\System32\Drivers" directory of the:

    Files To be replaced by OS Version

        CvhdbusP6.Sys Windows Server 2008 / Windows vista or later

        Bnistack6.sys Windows Server 2008 / Windows vista or later

        CvhdbusP52.Sys Windows 2003 SP2 / Windows XP SP2 or later

    CvhdbusP51.Sys Windows XP 32 bit only

        Bnistack.sys Windows 2003 SP2 / Windows XP or later

    CNicTeam.sys Any version, if present

      Copy the following file from the selected sub-folder included in this Hotfix to the Provisioning Services install directory (default is C:\Program Files\Citrix\Provisioning Services):

    For 32-bit, copy from target32bit subfolder:

        PVS6.1_hf267586_32bit_manifest.md5

      For 64-bit, copy from target64bit subfolder:

        PVS6.1_hf267586_64bit_manifest.md5

      7. Close Windows Explorer.

      8. (Optional) You may install or remove applications, add patches, and complete any other necessary updates into the Maintenance vDisk version.

      9. Shutdown the Maintenance device.

      10. (Optional) Test the updated Maintenance vDisk version by booting a Test or Maintenance device, as described in the "Manually Updating a vDisk Image" procedure, Citrix Provisioning Services 6.0 Administrator's Guide.

    11. From Provisioning Services Console's "Vdisk Versions" dialog, right-click on the Maintenance vDisk version, then select the "Promote..." menu option from the context menu that appears.

    12. Select to promote this Maintenance vDisk version into Production. Set the availability of this version in production to be either immediate or scheduled. Click "OK" to promote this version and end maintenance.

    13. The targets need to be rebooted for the hotfix to take effect.

    Target Device Uninstallation Instructions

      1. Revert to the former image of the vDisk in vDisk Versions.
