I think I already know what everybody's going to say, but I'll ask anyway...
I have a single Citrix MetaFrame XP server, the only server in my only farm, running on Win2K3 Server Standard, and I want to upgrade to Presentation Server 4.5. From what I understand, there is no direct upgrade path. Everyone's favorite solution is to use a second server (I don't have one) or to just rebuild the old server from scratch (very time-consuming - I'd be down for several days).
The Administration Guide does mention one other possiblity: exporting the Citrix settings to an export file using scripts developed with the Citrix SDK, then installing PS 4.5 and importing the settings. I've found some scripts already, but from what I can tell, they only move settings about.
What about my applications? Will they stay in the same place? I mean, I won't have to reinstall them to get them to work if the settings are re-imported? This is critical because we have some very flaky 3rd party apps that are business critical... if I was just running Office I'd just plunge in and do the rebuild.
Has anyone used scripts in this fashion before, and did it work? Thanks.
