Citrix Xenapp 4.5 License server on DC failes after DCPROMO to remove DC

Hi

We have a windows 2003 standard R2 Sp2 32 bit server with Citrix Xenapp 4.5 License server
This server was also the secondary domain controller.

I did a successful Dcpromo to remove DC - worked fine , but after reboot I cannot connect citrix from any clients ?? Citrix 4.5 is on a seperate server but we had the xml config running on the DC I just DCpromoed.

Did I do something wrong ?

first check licensing - maybe it's still running OK. If your Presentation Server shows no error, than it's OK. You can install licensing on any other server. But than you'll need to get new xenapp license from mycitrix.com (you can reallocate your existing licenses).

Web access can be installed on any other server too. you must install 'services' for internal access and  'web site' for external access.

Try and if you get stuck, report back

Is our problem related to licensing server or your users just can not connect to PS?You are saying 'we had xml config" - I presume that you mean WebInterface. If licensing is OK (should be if you did not change hostname) check citrix plugin. If you use FQDN (servername.domain.com), change it only to 'myserver'.

If not - than you'll need to recreate service site. If you did no change default setting you do not have a lot of work
