Citrix Provisioning Services 6.1 hotfix packaging policy

Previously hotfixes for all Citrix Provisioning Services 6.1 components were delivered as loose binaries and that resulted in overhead for customers and required many manual steps to track and deploy the hotfixes correctly. To improve the customer experience, the Server and Console hotfixes will now be provided as an installation package only. The advantages of having an installer include:

  • Reducing manual tasks for deploying hotfix
  • Tracking what hotfixes are installed on the local machine

For the Target device, based on the customer feedback we will continue to only provide loose binaries as a flexible deployment option.

Packaging Policy

• PVS Server: Hotfixes for the Provisioning Services Server component will be delivered as a cumulative install package.

• PVS Console: Hotfixes for the Provisioning Services Console component will be delivered as a cumulative install package.

• PVS Target Device: Hotfixes for the Provisioning Services Target Device will only be delivered as individual binaries. The only exception will be when a fix included in the hotfix requires an installation package.
