Edit the optimization.xml file for the Provisioning Server Target Device

February 8, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

Before converting a machine to a Provisioning Services vDisk with XenConvert you always have to start the Provisioning Services Device Optimizer.

This tool uses a file called optimization.xml to display all the settings you can choose during optimization.

This file is placed in the following folders:

1. C:\Program Files\Citrix\Provisioning Services
2. C:\Program Files\Citrix\XenConvert

You can simply edit this file to make your own settings, just open the file with an editor and place your own regkeys. If you use the optimization during XenConvert you only have to edit the file in the first folder, if you will use the standalone tool, you also have to edit the file in the second folder.

Here is an example, what to add to the file:

<optimization>
<description>BNNS Disable Offload</description>
<registrykey>[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\BNNS\Parameters]</registrykey>
<modification>”EnableOffload”=dword:00000000</modification>
</optimization>

<optimization>
<description>Disable Wireless Configuration Service</description>
<registrykey>[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\WZCSVC]</registrykey>
<modification>”Start”=dword:00000004</modification>
</optimization>

This sets a regkey for tuning the target device in a PVS environment, as mentioned by Citrix in CTX117374 and disables the wireless configuration service on a Windows 2003 server.

This looks like this:

You can set regkeys for whatever you want!
