Intel ANS and Citrix PVS conflict

When i install Citrix PVS (v5.6 and 6.1) software onto a Dell r620 with Intel x520 NIC. It breaks any vlans I have setup.

It appears that the Citrix PVS software is breaking the Intel ANS software during the boot stages.

If I boot the server, then create the vlans after the server has booted they work fine.

If i reboot after creating them the server boots and the vlans are broken (no connectivity on that vlan).

Its like creating the vlan "after" boot time loads/reloads the ANS driver which then sits on top of the Citrix PVS driver enabling it to work correctly.

Any ideas how to fix this?

Thanks,

Ant.

Hi Anthony,

I did some research, and I think I found your answer on the Citrix web site:

The main thing is you have to configure all ANS interfaces before installing the provisioning services.
