Impact of Citrix Pvs for VMs agent on persistent VDI (not managed by PVS or MCS)

Bruno Postiau


Good morning

we are running Citrix 2023 CU3 ESR


I upgraded some VDA clients on persistent VDIs from 1912 to 2023 without mentionning /Exclude "Machine Identity Service" by mistake.

this installed the service Citrix Pvs for VMs agent, which we usually do not deploy.

By the description this service is supposed to change the local machine password for MCS


We did  not see the issue immediately because we didn't get any side effect so far.

Since the machines are not managed by PVS (or MCS), is this service potentially going to change the local password anyway ? 

is there any way to prevent this  (registry / GPO / GPP) without reinstalling the VDA ?


thanks in advance for your comments.
