App-V DB Install Error

Scenario: When installing the APP-V server side components and pointing to the SQL database sometimes we would get the following message.

Our user account had full rights to the SQL instance and was a local admin of the APP-V box.

Error: The installation program could not connect to the configuration data store. Please see the installation log file for more information.


Solution: right click and run the setup as admin

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.


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)


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


  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
