Citrix Platinum Edition was installed on a server into an existing Advanced edition Farm and the user license is infact for Advanced edition on the Citrix License Server.  If I go into the Access Management Console on the citirx server and choose "Set Server Edition"  and change to Advanced will this be ok   or will I have to rebuild the server with the Adanced edition CD  and start again ?

Thanks

Changing the edition to Advanced is all you need to do.

Thanks but what is the point in having a different CD for Adanced/Ent  and Platinum   ?  Is the content the same and the license the only difference ?  Surely Platinum has a richer set of features ?
Also Ive noticed that the server that is the wrong license version  (which I need to use the set option to change)  isnt allowing me to publish any apps to it, infact the option isnt  even in the menu ?

The difference between editions is the features.  Plus the Platinum Edition gives you client licenses for a couple of extra goodies (Edge Sight is the one that comes to mind).

Ok so just to confirm  that even though the farm consists of 8 servers running 4.5 Advanced edition,  if I set the two new servers to that version it would cause any problems in the farm ?  and will the options to install and publish applications magically appear once I set the version ?

Thanks

No problems.  If you set 2 new servers to Platinum edition, they will drop down to match the Adv or Ent licenses you have.

Publishing applications is available in all editions.  You will not have to reinstall any applications or make any other changes in your Farm.
