When you want to install the bare essentials of the XenDesktop/XenApp 7.6 Virtual Desktop Agent you can use the command line switch /EXLCUDE to install only the bare minimum of the VDA agent.
The following KB article lists the 4 components which can be excluded using the XenDesktopVDASetup.exe /EXCLUDE command.
For your reference I’ve listed them below.
- Personal vDisk
- Machine Identity Service
- Citrix User Profile Manager
- Citrix Universal Print Client
These are the only 4 components you can exclude with the VDA agent installer. All other components are mandatory.
An example is shown below for how to setup the VDA Agent.
X64/XenDesktopVdaSetup.exe /exclude “personal vdisk”,”citrix universal print client”,”citrix user profile manager”
