Deleting a Desktop catalog in XenDesktop 7 gives the error ” The Machine Catalog could not be loaded, unable to find Machine creation data for id”


Citrix says the easiest way to fix a broken catalog is to recreate it. But what if it doesn’t allow you to delete the catalog to recreate it as happened to me.

Get-BrokerCatalog
