ok have a question, I am installing XenApp 5 on a Windows 2008 R2 server. I am to the point where I am installing the roles. I have the IIS and Application server checked, but the instructions say to check Terminal Services (terminal server and terminal licensing). This option is not avail in R2, so I click on Remote desktop licensing (formaly terminal services) but i do not know what option to check. I see remote desktop licensing but what else do I need to check?

Also, why does XenApp need terminal services? does that mean I need to purchase terminal server licenses too?

NOT going to happen.  XenApp 6 is the ONLY XenApp product that will install on 2008 R2.

XenApp sits on top of (actually besides) terminal services/remote desktop services.  And yes you have to buy TS/RDS CALS.

XenApp 5 is available for Server 2008 (original, not R2). The terminal services stuff in Windows was changed significantly between 2008 and 2008 R2 so it needed a load of work from Citrix to make XenApp work, hence major version increment and no backward compatibility etc.
