I need to move my citrix licenses.  They are currently on a VM.  If I just builld a new VM with the same name as the current machine (I know I have to turn the first one off and disjoin from the domain) that I should be able to import the liceses for citrix on the newly named machine if it has the same name.  Does anyone know the name of the license file and where it sits?  I have to get this done tonight so my users can connect through citrix in the morning.
Thanks !!

I am attempting to move the Citrix license console Management.  So yes, the citrix licenses.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I would just install licensing onto the new server, go to mycitrix.com, download the license file and import it into the new server.  The name is the same so you shouldn't have anything else to do.  UNLESS the name is not the same CaSe SenSitivE wise.  Then just return the license, re assign it, redownload it and then import it.

I agree with CarlWebster, that would be the easiest thing to do. therefore you dont need to disjoin and all that stuff...

Why did you assign the points to computermdnow???  He simply agreed with my solution.  That makes no sense and isn't fair.
