XenApp 6 Basic Questions.

XenApp 6 Basic Questions.

XenApp 6 Basic Questions.


I have a few basic questions when it comes to XenApp 6 that i haven't found (yet) the answers to via the Citrix eDoc directory:

    * I currently have a PS 4.0 farm; can i introduce XenApp 6 to this farm? I'm pretty sure the answer is no, but looking for confirmation.
    * I have a windows 2003 TS server issuing TS Cals that were purchased years ago. Do i need to purchase new TS Cals for windows 2008 remote desktop services for XenApp 6 ?
    * If i bring up a new farm, i still need the PS 4.0 farm up and running for legacy app support. When i log onto mycitrix and generate a new license file for XenApp 6, will that pose a problem for the PS 4 server?

I'm thinking i would have to re-point the PS 4.0 server to the new licensing server, but i've never introduced a new farm and don't know the small nuances as a result.

Hoping you can shed some light,


RE: XenApp 6 Basic Questions.

I am not sure about your first question, but you will need to purchase new TS Cals for Windows 2008 RD Services. In 2008 R2 you will have to manually point your servers to the lic server.  Auto discovery no longer works.  

You should use the most up to date version of the Citrix license server and point both farms to the new license server.
