So, its time for something new. At the first of may 2016, i’am starting as a freelancer. I’m available as IT Architect / Technical Architect, with strong focus on Citrix, Microsoft, VMWare, AirWatch. Overall knowledge of networking & storage. Also available for Consultant/Engineer roles.
Troubles with installing Citrix Provisioning Server 7 ?
Somewhere in the log you might find this
Creating Farm…FAILED. FAILED.
[16:07:19:615] Error: MODIFY FILE failed. Specified size is less than or equal to current size.
MODIFY FILE failed. Specified size is less than or equal to current size.
[16:07:19:615] Error: Source = .Net SqlClient Data Provider
Have a look at this CTX article:
I also had this problem with PVS7 on Server 2012 with SQL 2012 SP1. It has to do with the ‘model’ database on the SQL server. More or less it is a bit to big for the PVS Configuration utility. There are numerous solutions. The ‘model’ database is a ‘default configuration’ , a model, for new databases. We changed the MODEL database FILE size to anything smaller that 20 MB. Also did that for the LOG size, just to be sure.
Some other things to keep in mind..
- Are there any data base files left form previous installs ? (when you remove a ‘old’ database in SQL Studio you won’t actually remove the database file from the DATA and LOG folders)
- Supported OS/SQL server? (see edocs.citrix.com for product specs)
