Power Management of XenDesktop 7.x Delivery Groups – Prevent workloads from powering off when not in use


There are many a times when you would want to prevent XenDesktop/XenApp 7.x power management from powering off virtual machines in the catalog. If you ever wondered how to do it, here are the steps

Open the PowerShell in administrative mode on the Controller server

asnp citrix*
Set-BrokerDesktopGroup "Delivery group Name" -AutomaticPowerOnForAssignedDuringPeak $True

if the above doesnt fix it, then run the below command as well which will ensure that all the VMs are ready for connections all the time

Set-BrokerDesktopGroup "<Delivery group Name>" -PeakBufferSizePercent 100 -OffPeakBufferSizePercent -100
