Citrix Virtual Apps and Desktops SDK


Applies a change to one of the VolumeServiceConfiguration instances in the site.


Set-HypVolumeServiceConfiguration -VolumeWorkerPackageUri <String> -ConnectionType <String> -VolumeServiceConfigurationName <String> [-LoggingId <Guid>] [-BearerToken <String>] [-AdminAddress <String>] [<CommonParameters>]

Set-HypVolumeServiceConfiguration -RegionName <String> -BaseLinuxTemplateId <String> -ConnectionType <String> -VolumeServiceConfigurationName <String> [-LoggingId <Guid>] [-BearerToken <String>] [-AdminAddress <String>] [<CommonParameters>]

Detailed Description

Volume service configurations are used to control how cloud-based host connections behave when provisioning machines. They contain two pieces of information. The first is a per-region specification of the cloud template that provides the standard Linux operating system for the cloud. The second is the specification of a URL from which the Citrix Volume Worker software can be installed (not all cloud connections make use of this URL, but they all make use of the template map).

Each cmdlet invocation can be used to either change the volume worker URL, or to modify (or add) an entry in the Linux template map. These two operations are supported by parameter sets. To change both properties, you must invoke the cmdlet twice.


Name Description Required? Pipeline Input Default Value
ConnectionType Specifies the cloud connection type, such as “AWS” or “CloudPlatform”. true false  
VolumeServiceConfigurationName Specifies the name of the configuration you want to modify. This parameter is used alongside the ConnectionType to specify a single configuration set unambiguously. There can be only one named configuration per connection type. In a newly-configured site, there will be exactly one configuration set called “SiteDefault” for each of CloudPlatform and AWS. true false  
VolumeWorkerPackageUri Specifies a (new) URI for the volume worker package. true false  
RegionName Specifies the cloud region in which the Linux template resides. This parameter is used only when passing the BaseLinuxTemplateId parameter. The format of the string is cloud-specific. For example, for an AWS-based cloud, it would be a region identifier such as “us-east-1”. true false  
BaseLinuxTemplateId Specifies a change to the standard Linux template that should be used in the cloud. When passing this parameter, you must also specify the RegionName parameter to indicate the region in which this template resides. The format of the string is cloud-specific. For example, for an AWS-based cloud, it would be an AMI identifier such as “ami-1234abcd”. true false  
LoggingId Specifies the identifier of the high-level operation this cmdlet call forms a part of. Citrix Studio and Director typically create high-level operations. PowerShell scripts can also wrap a series of cmdlet calls in a high-level operation by way of the Start-LogHighLevelOperation and Stop-LogHighLevelOperation cmdlets. false false  
BearerToken Specifies the bearer token assigned to the calling user false false  
AdminAddress Specifies the address of a XenDesktop controller the PowerShell snap-in will connect to. You can provide this as a host name or an IP address. false false Localhost. Once a value is provided by any cmdlet, this value becomes the default.

Input Type

Return Values


This cmdlet returns the updated VolumeServiceConfiguration object.


Example 1

C:\PS>Set-HypVolumeServiceConfiguration -VolumeServiceConfigurationName SiteDefault -ConnectionType CloudPlatform -RegionName Region1 -BaseLinuxTemplateId 9883ba7a-74bf-4002-9b12-18bcc2c2fae8


This command specifies a Linux template that should be used by default for CloudPlatform connections.

Example 2

C:\PS>Set-HypVolumeServiceConfiguration -VolumeServiceConfigurationName SiteDefault -ConnectionType CloudPlatform -VolumeWorkerPackageUri ""


This command specifies a worker package download URL that should be used by default for CloudPlatform connections.
