XenDesktop and XenApp VDA Exclusion


The default Citrix Virtual Delivery Agent installation includes several optional components that may not required, for example when upgrading the v7/v7.1 VDA software. They can be excluded using an installation command line.

The options are:

  • Personal vDisk
  • Machine Identity Service
  • Citrix User Profile Manager
  • Citrix Universal Print Client.

The command line is:

  • XenDesktopVDASetup.exe /EXCLUDE “Personal vDisk”, “Machine Identity Service”
  • etc

There is no help on the command line, thanks Citrix !
