When upgrading a server's operating system, the administrator might be unsure of whether the server was deployed with Citrix or RDS capabilities, and as such they are also unsure of whether to follow this process of upgrading, which includes the implementation of CloudConnect's DesktopConfig and UpgradePrep utility, or this process, which does not.
This article will show you an easy way to determine whether your virtual server was built with or without Citrix or RDS capabilities, and will help you to determine how your server was deployed.
Login to the VM as an administrator
Open PowerShell and type the following command: Import-Module ServerManager
Next, type the command Get-WindowsFeature RDS-RD-Server . If the "Install State" field returns "Installed", your server WAS built with Citrix or RDS capabilities.
-Follow this process to upgrade your server OS that WAS deployed with Citrix/RDS
-Follow this process to upgrade your server OS that WAS NOT deployed with Citrix/RDS
Congratulations, you're done!
