Do I need a new Citrix License Server and a New Terminal Server License Server?


I just got landed with the project of upgrading our Citrix Servers from Citrix Presentation Server 4.0 to Citrix Xenapp 5. We already have a Citrix License Server that also has the Terminal Server License Server setup on the same Server. I viewed the CBT nugget for Citrix Presentation 4.0 about four months ago and setup a test VM network at home. I now need to setup a Citrix Evaluation Citrix License and Terminal Server and Xenapp 5 Production Server. I'm worried that if I setup this License Server it will cause conflicts with the exist Citrix Farm. Is it okay to set it up on the Production network for test purposes? I have no choice but to setup it up on the production network for test purposes because of lack of resourses. My boss states that when I setup one of the Xenapp Servers I should be able to choose which Citrix License Server I want to use so I shouldn't have any problems. I'm worried however about the Evaluation Terminal Services License Server.

If I understand your question, then I think your boss is right on this one.  We have 2 separate versions running as 2 separate farms (with 2 separate citrix license servers) running on servers that are all on the same subnet, with no conflicts.  You should also be able to create test farms at any time without causing any problems to your production environment.

Hi Herrmannator

Will I need to setup another Terminal Services License Server as well? The new Xenapp5 will be a test Citrix Farm so can I setup a new Terminal Services Evaluation Server on the same Server as the Citrix License Server. I'm worried the Terminal Services Evaluation Server will conflict with the existing one as well.

We use same TS license server for our entire environment, and I don't see any reason you'd set up another instance of this.  Just point back at the existing one.
