Newly created VDAs are always assigned a GPU in vcenter, although the master image has none (MCS)

Question

Hello,

every time I create several new VDAs in Citrix Studio, all of these VDAs have a GPU assigned in vcenter, even though the master image does not have one.
Can someone explain me why this is the case? Our VDAs are not supposed to get a GPU and it is very tedious to manually edit all the machines again in vcenter.

Thanks!

Interesting... there is  no other mechanism in vSphere that is supposed to do that. As far as I know, it is just the golden image.  If the golden image does not have it, then the MCS VDAs should not... Do you have a script that run periodically and modify those VMs?

One thing you can do just to be 100% sure is to review the .VMX file for one of those affected VMs. You can find this file in the VM folder in vCenter client.

I don't understand it...
We don't have any scripts running that modify the VMs.
I have now also looked at the .vmx, there is no shared PCI device there (I compared it to a .vmx that has a GPU mounted).

 

Now this is not a huge problem because we don't create hundreds of VDAs every day, it just had me wondering.
