Quick Fix: Citrix PVS the system is not configured properly


Came across a problem on a single Citrix Provisioning Server (PVS) the other day when trying to access the local PVS console. A message popped up and said “the system is not configured properly”.

A slightly concerning message for a production system. Looking at the console of the other PVS server confirmed that the affected server was still streaming vDisk’s correctly and in all other respects working as expected.

Luckily there is a nice simple and non disruptive fix for this issue. On the PVS server that is receiving “the system is not configured properly” message, just open the Services.mmc console and restart the Citrix PVS Soap Server service. Once that is back up and running you should find console access restored.
