I have upgraded our PVS environment from version 7.9 to 7.12. The issue I am seeing is that from the PVS 7.12 console I am no longer able to restart servers that are running the new 7.12 target device software. I am however able to restart servers that are still running the 7.9 target device software. In fact I restarted a server (running 7.9 target device) from the PVS 7.12 console successfully, but when I try to restart that same server again now running the 7.12 target device software, that target device never restarts even the status message in the restart devices window says "Success". Does anyone have any ideas why this would be the case or if there is something I need to look at?
One thing I may I have done differently than maybe I should have for the upgrade is that on each of our PVS servers we were upgrading I upgraded the PVS server software from 7.9 to 7.12 before upgrading the PVS console software. I then upgraded the target device software on the vDisks,
UPDATE - In doing some more testing, I noticed that when I am on the console of the target device after sending a shutdown or restart command for example, my cursor on the desktop keeps going from a normal cursor arrow to a cursor arrow with an hour glass repeatedly every second. If I use the PVS console to then send a message to that target device, that goes through right away and the message immediately shows up on the target device and it then performs the restart or shutdown command that I tried right before I sent the target device the message. This even happens if I wait several minutes before sending the target device a message after sending it a restart or shutdown command from the PVS console. I have had the same results every time when trying this.
