Edgesight 5 not working on Xenapp 6.5 in Private mode with Provisioning Services 5.0

Scenario: Edgesight 5.6 not working on Xenapp 6.5 in Private mode with Provisioning Services 5.0

The edgesight agent would run locally without issue – but little to no data would be uploaded for each the server for users logons when running reports etc etc

The edgesight server would report a duplicate entry for registered servers after every reboot of any of the PVS servers.

Steps:

the following steps have to be taken to install the Edgesight Agent properly on a privatte PVS Image solution

  1. The registry key must be set to ignore PVS Private mode (so the agent will actually run)
  2. the edgesight database must have a consistent disk to write its database too

FIX 1) (if its a x64 bit server remember to use syswow64)

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWARECitrixSystem MonitoringAgentCore4.00 “IgnorePVSMode”=dword:00000001

(allow the edgesight agent to run even in private PVS mode)

FIX 2)

IF AGENT IS NOT INSTALLED ALREADY

msiexec.exe /i EdgeSightXAAgent.msi /l logfile.log /q SERVER_NAME=EDGESIGHTSERVER COMPANY=Mycompany DATA_DIR=”d:CitrixSystem MonitoringMydata”

IF AGENT IS INSTALLED ALREADY

  1. Within the registry, navigate to the key HKLMSoftwareCitrixSystem MonitoringAgentCore4.00 and change the DataPath to the appropriate location on the physical disk of the target devices.
  2. Within the file system, navigate to %ProgramFiles%CitrixSystem MonitoringAgentCoreFirebird and locate aliases.conf.
  3. Open aliases.conf in a text editor and change the RSDatr entry to match the location of the data folder on the physical disk of the target devices. For example: RSDatr = D:CitrixSystem MonitoringDataRSDatr.fdb
