Testing redundancy of Citrix 2 Server farm

I'm trying to test failover with my citrix 4.0 Enterprise Citrix farm.

I shutdown the citrix server that had the citrix license on it and then tried connecting by WI, ICA client, and  Metaframe Presentation Server 4.0 Console  on the the secondary Citrix server. I was not able to access anything.

What do I need to review to make there is no downtime

you need a license server... that is a must in order to make a connection.  If you wanted absolutely no downtime then install the license console on each of your servers and share the licenses between them.

of course if you have 1/2 of the licenses on a server and it goes down, now only half your employees can connect (assuming your licenses are all being used).  So in this case you would need twice as many licenses as you have connections.

I thought I did that... How can I verify?
