how can i setup clustering/fault tolerance for RD LICENSING MANAGER (for citrix xenapp 6, windows server 208 r2)

hey all, need to setup some sort of fault tolerance for the RD LICENSING MANAGER role in my environment
we want to create another server at a different site for fault tolerance,  but not sure how i should be setting this up
i was told this service is not cluster aware and that i should setup another instance of the role on a different server at a different site and not activate it.
not sure if thats correct or if there is anything else i need to do?

Well, you can bring up the second server and activate it, just don't install any codes on it, and don't point to it.  Point your RDS/XA servers at the "primary" server.  In the event of a disaster, you can install the codes on the "backup" server and reactivate them.

The redeeming part is that when a RDS License is not available, the system will give you 71-89 days grace period to get it back in shape, so it's not a critical rush.  

Just do not lose those install codes! If you have to replace them, the Clearinghouse will ask for them..
