Disallow logon when VHDX is in use. RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello all,

    Sometimes one of our Citrix servers is crashing, it becomes unresponsive but all VHDX files from the users logged on to it remain in use. So what happens is that the users try to logon again to a different server but due to the file being in use Windows will just create a new local profile on the Citrix server.

    Long story short, I have 'Prevent login with failure' and 'Prevent login with temporary profile' enabled, but users can still continue to logon. 

    How can I fully block logons when the VHDX is in use?

  • Same issues here, it seems that the Settings: "Prevent login with failure" and "Prevent login with temporary profile" are broken for a while now... Maybe after Windows Updates?

    Yeah could be.

    It's pretty annoying because for some reason users will lose their pinned taskbar items when this happens. So the VHDX is in use, user logs on gets a temp or local profile but the taskbar is not loading. So he has to call the helpdesk to log him off. Then when the VHDX is not in use anymore he can log back in but all his pinned taskbar items are all gone.
