Citrix PS 4.5 HRP 5 vs XenApp 5 FP2
Posted on 2010-09-02
OK, I am really confused. I have a farm that is mixed with 32 and 64 bit versions of windows 2003. I have PS 4.5 HRP5 installed on all of them. On a test farm I have PS 4.5 HRP6 installed. on the prod farm my Framework version says 4.5.6 and on the test farm 4.5.7. BUT when I try to install XA 5 FP2 on my test farm, it tells me I already have HRP5 installed. So here is my dillema: (on top of that confusing XenApp5 FP2 wont install on a 4.5 HRP6 server stating that its already at HRP5..umm yeah it still SAYS Presntation server 4.5 in add/remove programs!!)
OK, so say I bring my current prod farm up to HRP6. And I introdusce some 2008x64 servers..Citrix has no software called Presentation Server 4.5 for windows 2008. So I have NO choice but to put XenApp5 FP2 on the new 2008 servers and I do not doubt that the product version will say XenApp 5 in the AMC..will my farm freak out because Im running essentially two different versions of XenApp..4.5 HRP6 and XA 5 FP2??? Im really going nutso over this..is 4.5 HRP6 and XA5 FP2 the same?? except for the "new" management console that can be installed on 4.5 which rebrands it XenApp...Ugh I want tp punch Citrix Marketing in the face..
