I have an existing Single Server in a XenApp Farm.  The farm info is stored on a SQL Server.

I built a new xenapp server and all runs great after the windows install and XenApp Install

The problem arises after adding the new  xenapp server to existing farm the network or remote connections keeps dropping and I loose all access and have to force a reboot of the new xenapp server and the existing working server experiences connection problems and has to reconnect all sessions.  

Please HELP!

Did you set your license server in a Citrix policy?

Not sure I know exactly what you are saying, but during the config I told it where the licence server was.

You need to set a Citrix Policy to set the license server for the farm.

Whenever I hear of disconnects and login issues on a new XenApp 6 install, so far, 100% of the time the license server has not been set in a Citrix Policy.

Good info, i have verified that the policy is set in the farm to the correct settings.  Any other thoughts?

Is the server pingable by NetBIOS and FQDN from both servers?

Is the license file actually being loaded by the license server?

Are there any errors on the license server?

From every XenApp server, you must be able to ping by NetBIOS and FQDN the license server.  Also make sure there is nothing blocking TCP ports 27000 and 7279 (IIRC).

Turns out it was a licensing issue, when installing XenApp i kept selecting the option to specify the licensing server rather then selecting the option to use the server farm licensing.  Thank you Carl.
