I created 2 vm's on my new xenserver.
xen runs licensing server and Web interface

xen1 is the first of many xenapp servers

I disabled teh firewalls on both. I am able to ping from one to the other.

I can open the wi on both.
The licensing server fails to connect.  I have no idea where to begin trouble shooting this.
I can open the LMC on both servers.

And a RPC error comes up from xen1 to xen trying to view webinterface via AMC. (related?)

I did a netstat -a to see what was running.. i read port 27000 is the lic server port.
The only listing of this port has a local address of 127.0.0.1
i dont used netstat alot. maybe thats normal.  Not sure why it be set to the loopback address?
no idea how to change it

The licensing server may have resolved itself.. for now.  The only way i know to test it is to reboot.  the error dint come up.  I still get the rpc error
tring to view WI via xen1's AMC.  I cant get it to work.  It works from xen, which is odd... but keeps it from being a critical issue, more of a annoyance.

Did you make sure your account was able able to do remote com+? Make sure you have enable network com+ in add and remove windows components as well as making sure the account is in the Distributed COM Users group on each server.

Ah 2008 - sorry wasn't listed so I assumed 2003.

Have you tried doing a repair of the XenApp Install? that should recreate all the services, credentials, etc.

hmm  additional note:
xen (web inteface /licensing server) can view web inteface in the AMC. it CANNOT discover Xen1 (only xenapp server so far)
Xen1 can discover itself in AMC but not the web inteface on Xen.
:|
they both can ping eachother.

FYI Web Interface 5.1 and up now no longer stores any Web Interface information in the Citrix Datastore (in 4.x versions you used to have the option to have it stored in datastore so it could be administered from any server) - so essentially Web Interface administration can now only happen on the Web Interface server's locally installed AMC only...

Just something to keep in mind.
