It's been a while since we used PVS. I was looking at 7.7 and was wondering if it is still best practice to disable all tcp IPV4/6 offload settings on the server and clients?

Carl - in that article, it states to "Disable Offloads under NIC Advanced Properties".  Assuming the PVS server is virtual (XenServer) running 2012 R2, does that mean to disable ALL offloads on the NIC properties?

I think DisableTaskOffload takes care of it.

What layer would you do this using Unidesk?

I am not able to get to ctx204107.   Does this mean we do not need to disable the various offload options?  Does it mean that all we need to do is apply the below reg key?

 

 

HKLM\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Tcpip\Parameters
