Using two license servers in same Citrix farm
Posted on 2008-11-01
We are running PS4.0 Advanced in our farm. License server is LicA.
We have agreed with Citrix to upgrade the farm to PS4.5 Enterprise. We will purchase new Enterprise licenses, and in return, Citrix will 'buy back' the old Advanced licences once all the servers have been upgraded from PS4.0 Advanced to PS4.5 Enterprise.
We wanted to upgrade the farm over a period of time, for safety reasons, so have built a new Enterprise license server, LicB.
Our plan is to, over a course of time, upgrade each PS4.0 Advanced server to PS4.5 Enterprise, and then point the newly upgraded server to LicB.
We have done this on one server so far, ServerB.
ServerB has Notepad published, as does ServerA which is still running PS4.0 Advanced and pointing to LicA.
However, we notice that users trying to access Notepad are all directed to ServerB, even though it is published on ServerA too. There are plenty of licenses left on both License servers, so I'm not sure how this would happen?
Also - just a query. If all the licenses on LicA had been used up, am I correct in thinking that all new sessions would take place on ServerB? If there were licenses on both servers, then the sessions should be spread between ServerA and B?
Hope someone can help!
