Citrix install questions

Citrix install questions

I've got a few questions about Citrix.

I had Citrix Presentation Server 3.5 installed.
I uninstalled, and installed a fresh install of Citrix.
Support at Citrix told me to download XenApp 5.0 and install, then install Feature Pack, then Feature Pack 2, then Feature Pack 3.
So I downloaded 5.0, and it is 4.5. Why is this?
I double-checked, the download says 5.0, but when it is unzipped, it says 4.5.
Is this okay? Will upgrading to the latest Feature Pack remedy this?

Also, I installed the newest version of License Server, have tried to import my license file. It says that the import was successful, but with a warning "Inconsistant Server Host".
When I have the Presentation Server Console open, on the status bar, it says my Citrix server isn't licensed.

One last question - should I attempt to get 4.5 all running well (with apps & server file, etc) before moving forward with the upgrades? Or should I just do them all first, then try to set up my server farm?

I'm hoping I can avoid spending another 1.5hrs on hold waiting for support, by finding some answers here!


RE: Citrix install questions

I've only installed Xenapp 5 on Windows 2008 64 bit but I believe that Xenapp 5 on Windows 2003 is just a rebadged version of PS4.5. I.e. After you add the FP's it magically turns into v5.

For license server I'd go and get the license file regenerated and try it again.

RE: Citrix install questions

I read up a bit on the issue (license) - I tried the suggestions I found (restarting the service - manually pasting the license file in the proper directory).
THen I installed the license file on a different server. I got the same results (inconsistant server host ID).

From the server where I've installed Citrix - how do I point it to the license file on another server?

RE: Citrix install questions

It's in farm properties in the Advanced Delivery Console somewhere.
