I have been told that if you install the Citrix Provisioning Services (PVS) 7.7, or later, console on version 7.0 through 7.6 LTSR that you can use the new Citrix PVS PowerShell. You know, the new, real, object-oriented PowerShell. I decided to test this to see if it was true.

Thanks to my employer, Choice Solutions, for allowing me to write this on company time.

Before we begin, let’s get the most important question out of the way. “If I install the PVS 7.9 console on my 7.1 PVS farm, is this supported by Citrix?” Yes, it is a supported configuration. The usual warnings apply. Test first. Test in your lab first. Don’t just blindly apply this in production because you read it here without first having database and server backups. Test, test and then test again.

If you are still using PVS 7.0 or 7,1, it is about time you upgraded.

I am going to assume you have PVS version 7.0 or 7.1 or 7.6 or 7.6 LTSR installed along with the console. I am using 7.1 with Hotfix PVS710ServerConsoleWX64004 for PVS Server and Console 7.1 x64 .
