Hi, we run a Xenapp 6 farm (only Windows 2008 R2 64 bit Servers). Now we have an app that requires Windows 2003 32 bit, how can we add this server to our farm so that we can publish the app to Terminal Servers in the Xenapp 6 farm?

thanks

Create a separate XA5/2003 farm, publish the app and use Web Interface to aggregate the 2 farms.

You cannot and should not even attempt to add a XenApp 5 2003 server to this farm.  Doing so will absolutely risk corrupting your data store and destroying your XA6 farm.

Could you use virtualization? Create a new image with Windows 2K3 32bit and run it where you have resources available. NO hardware would be needed I think that could save you time/money and would be easiest.  Once that is up then you can setup Xenapp with your application.

Do what Carl said. Also, use 1 license server, so users can launch apps from xerver 2003 XAFP3 and Server 2008 XA6 and only consume 1 license and only see 1 application set. Its actually a better approach doing multiple farms. This way you can run long term without issues. Users can run IE6 and IE8 side by side. XA5FP3 co-released with XA6 and has HDX featuers.
