Citrix PVS tip: seeing uneven performance issues on certain golden images? bear in mind the following

Interesting statement posted on

“However, exceptions do exist if the other product does not fully conform to the standard or requires a special configuration right above the NIC driver. The Provisioning Server client might not work properly in such situations. Typical examples include (but are not limited to) some antivirus software and Virtual Private Networking (VPN) software. In such cases, vary the installation order to work around the possible interference.”

It’s the piece in bold that is of interest – we did encounter what would be best called uneven performance on one of our golden image builds (deployed via MDT) – what we did find was leaving our McAfee move AV client installation to second to last on the install order list (eg leaving the PVS client last) resolved a number of these issues.
