New Citrix Provisioning Services tool: PVSDataTools

PVSDataTools is a set of tools used to collect and parse data from a Provisioning Services (PVS) Server to assist in troubleshooting an issue. PVSDataTools contains two tools: PVSDataCollector and PVSDataParser.

PVSDataCollector v1.2.2

The PVSDataCollector collects the following information from the PVS Server:

  • System Information
  • Windows Event Logs
  • TCP and UDP Port Information
  • PVS Logs (Entire Directory)
  • PVS Configuration Files
  • PVS Data (that is farm, server, collection, device, disk, site and store information)

PVSDataParser 1.2.2

The PVSDataParser is used to view the following data collected from the PVSDataCollector:

  • System Information
  • TCP and UDP Port Information
  • PVS Logs
  • Basic PVS Overview

The PVSDataParser does not parse Windows Event Logs and dump files. Manual parsing is required for data of this type.


The PVSDataCollector is intended for PVS Servers running PVS 5.6 and above. The PVSDataParser was tested on the following Microsoft Windows platforms:

  • Windows 7
  • Windows 8
