MCS Update Machines

Scott Ferguson1709155091


Hi. About to move from testing/pilot to Production and have a concern.


XD 1811 and Windows 10 using MCS

Machine Catalog with 300 Machines all running all in same Delivery Group. Delivery Group set to always have 300 powered during peak hours. Only 2 users logged on

Select "Update Machines" and choose new golden image and choose "On next shutdown".


MCS then proceeded to slowly (per Hosting connection restrictions) shutdown all my Machines. It is not changing them and then powering them back on though and eventually I get zero machines powered on. Crazy right. Overrides power management and now my Delivery Group is useless and no one can log on. In Production this would cause massive issues.



Is this what is supposed to happen?

How does one update a Catalog without depleting a delivery group?

Do I simply need more identical Machine Catalogs and stage the Machine Update?
