When you delete machines added through XenDesktop and want to add new machines with the same name this isn’t possible.


Use the following command to view the startcount of the current machines:

Add-PsSnapin Citrix.*
Get-AcctIdentityPool > c:\pools.txt

MCS StartCount

When you want to reset the Startcount to 1 (new machines will start with XA01 and so on) the use the following command:

New-AcctADAccount -IdentityPoolName “” -Count 1 -StartCount 1

When you now use: Get-AcctIdentityPool > c:\pools.txt then the StartCount is set to 1.
