vCloud Director Deploying VM from Catalog Does Not Create Drive to Specified Size

vcloud-driector-deployed-windows-server-vm-from-catalog-drive-not-automatically-created-to-specified-larger-size

When deploying a VM from a public catalog in vCloud Director, the VM is created wit hthe default tepmplate size and not the size specified when setting the deployment options.

An example of this is when a Windows Server 2008R2 VM was deployed from a template, the drive was not automatically extended to 80GB. It was the default of 40GB. This can occure if guest customizations is not enabled during the process of deploying the VM from catalog.

The drive has to be extended manually using Windows Disk Manager.

Citrix Error 2320

There are many possible solutions for this problem and in the past I followed these to get this error resolved . They included registry modifications.  It has been several times that I seen this error when a user at a different unrelated offices  had to connect to two different Citrix servers. One of their own and the other from a provider. It turns out that that this is one of the causes – the versions of the different plugins , the web plugin vs. the full plugin.

The solution is similar in both cases, but not exactly as each had to use a different full plugin so I cannot say which plugin to use to solve the problem. It more specific to the environment and requirements of the office you are having this Citrix error show up in.

In one case the user’s desktop was fixed by installing a 12.x full plugin and the other office needed the enterprise edition of the receiver which is installable with a command line option to have the blue citrix plugin icon versus the black receiver icon.
