After writing this blogpost on Adding a persistent disk via Powershell with Citrix MCS running on Nutanix AHV I got an email from one of our senior system architects, he asked me about this configuration so I shared the blogpost with him and his customer to find out that this customer enhanced the scripting part by using powershell and ControlUp to initialize format and assign a drive letter to the disk. Smart usage of available tools!

After our release of full support for Citrix PVS running on Nutanix AHV the blogpost I wrote on Automating Citrix PVS on Nutanix AHV with PoSH in 2015 was obsolete until I got a question around this and I figured that I could update the script with the new PVS cmdlets (and it needed some finetuning as well).

I wanted to write a script that checks my current machine catalog and puts VMs that are not in a Nutanix Protection Domain in a PD to make sure that we can protect those VMs using the policies Nutanix offers.

If you’re a more regular reader of my blog you probably have read about Nutanix AHV, the native hypervisor that Nutanix ships. Nutanix AHV is built from the ground up for hyper convergence and that makes it a great hypervisor for desktop virtualisation. This is where the relationship with Citrix and the Citrix Provisioning SDK comes into play.
