Running Two Versions of Citrix Presentation Server in Same Domain
Posted on 2009-02-11
Hi.. We currently have 5 Citrix Servers running Presentation Server 4 in our Domain in a single farm. All servers and our domain controllers are W2K3. I want to upgrade all our Citrix Servers this year to 2008 and also upgrade to XenApp 5.0, but firstly I would just like to create a test VM with 2008 and XenApp 5 installed, install required applications on server, and get certain users from around the country to test the applications for a while. I have a few questions regarding this:
1) Do I need, or is it best to create this Citrix server in a separate test Farm;
2) If it's a separate Farm do I need another License server? If so can I use the test Citrix VM as the license server?
3) Will GPO's from our W2k3 domain controller still apply to the W2k8 Citrix server?
4) Any other implications I should be concerned about or need to know?
Thanks in advance for any advise.
