Citrix Provisioning Console Error: 0x00000057 – Invalid Parameter

Recommended Solutions:

1. Update your existing VHD vDisks to the VHDX file format. This can be done by running the Citrix Provisioning vDisk Imaging Wizard and selecting the VHDX format during creation. Existing vDisk must first be reverse imaged back to a Master local disk.

2. Leverage Hyper-V to convert the file format from VHD to VHDX. See: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/hyper-v/convert-vhd?view=win10-ps

Alternative:

Move your existing VHD based vDisk to 512 logical sector size based storage.

vDisk Sizing and Storage Guideline:

1. VHD [logical sector size 512] must be on storage with 512 logical sector size. No RMW.

2. VHD [logical sector size 512] does not support storage with 4096 logical sector size. PVS has not implemented RMW for performance reasons.

3. VHDX [logical sector size 512] can be on storage with 512 logical sector size. No RMW.

4. VHDX [logical sector size 512] can be on storage with logical sector size 4096. PVS implements RMW if necessary. vDisk Logical sector size must match Master Target Device hard disk.

UEFI Targets Only:

5. VHDX [logical sector size 4096] can be on storage with 512 or 4096 logical sector size. No RMW.

*Read-Modify-Write (RMW) results in degraded overall disk performance.
