How to Specify Multiple Delivery Controllers While Doing VDA Installation Using Command Line.

  • Specify the Delivery controller FQDN names in quotes spearated by a comma.
  • Run the below command separated by comma for successfull installation of multi-session OS VDA. The same syntax works for VDAWorkstationSetup.exe as well for intalling a single-session OS VDA.

VDAServerSetup_xxx.exe /quiet controllers “” , “” /enable_hdx_ports /enable_Remote_Assistance /enable_real_time_transport /enable_ss_ports /noreboot

  • Running the below command without separating the Delivery Controller names by comma throws the error “You must enter valid command line arguments.” in Xendesktop Installation logs.

VDAServerSetup_xxx.exe /quiet controllers “” “” /enable_hdx_ports /enable_Remote_Assistance /enable_real_time_transport /enable_ss_ports /noreboot
