Over time the CBS.log can grow to serveral Gigabytes !
Deleting the CBS.log not possible because it is locked by the Process TrustedInstaller.
To solve this you need to stop the Service Windows Modules Installer
Next remove the CBS.log and start the service again.

You might notice that your Citrix Server runs out of DiskCapacity over time.
After some investigation I found out that we had over 12.000 VMWareTray dmp files counting up to serveral Gb’s !!
The process vmwaretray.exe and vmwareuser.exe resulting in ‘Access Denied’ on the operation “RegOpenKey” against the key “HKLM\Software\VMWare. Inc.\VMWare Tools”.
Change the permissions to the VMWare key “HKLM\Software\VMWare. Inc.” by adding ‘Read Only’ access to the proper AD Group.
So far I have not seen the .dmp show up in any of the user Terminal Services profiles anymore.

This error when you try to install Microsoft .Net Framework 3 or 3.5 on a server running Windows Server 20012 R2.
Using Windows Server 2012 RC from the VHD, and selecting the .NET Framework 3.5 Feature, gives error message “The source files could not be found”
This issue continues even if you manually download the application and try to install it.
To solve this issue, you need to install the .Net 3.5 framework from the Windows 2012 R2 installation DVD. The files are located on “Source\sxs”.
Note: To improve the speed you can copy the files from the DVD to any folder on the server.
For this example, the files were copy to “C:\temp\sxs”.
Open a CMS windows as an “Administrator” and paste the following command:
C:\Windows\system32>dism.exe /online /enable-feature /featurename:NetFX3 /Source :C:\temp\sxs /LimitAccess /all
Note: Modify the /Source attribute if needed.
If the process was successful, you will see the following message
