"No servers available for disk" error PVS Private disk!

When configuring a vDisk for private mode, any device booting from that vDisk gets the "No servers available for disk" error.

For example, when connecting to the Provisioning Services (PVS) console on the first server, the vDisk is listed as private mode. When the console is connected to PVS console on the second server, the error appears when viewing the vDisk.


Caution! Make registry changes at own risk or test on a test environment first!

Note: In PVS 7.x the registry key that controls the stream process is now under HKLM\SOFTWARE\Citrix\ProvisioningServices\StreamProcess.

  1. Browse to the registry key HKLM\SOFTWARE\Citrix\ProvisioningServices\StreamProcess.

  2. Modify or create SkipRIMSForPrivate to appear as DWORD 1. HKLM\SOFTWARE\Citrix\ProvisioningServices\StreamProcess DWORD: SkipRIMSForPrivate Value: 1 This change needs to be made on all the PVS servers in the farm, after which the stream service should be restarted on PVS servers.

  3. At this point the replication status for the vDisk should only show the PVS servers that locally have the vDisk present on them and not all the PVS servers in the farm.
