IMA in a Presentation Server Farm?

Hi everyone,
How do I know if my Citrix Presentation Server Farm is using IMA? In such a case, where do I find the key so I can use it to add another server to the farm?
Thanks

ALL Presentation Server/XenApp servers use IMA.  Did you use IMA Encryption and need the key?  If not, there is no key for IMA.  Just add a new server and point it to your data store database when it asks if you want to join or create a farm.  Select join, point to data store and answer questions.

I do not see any "IMA Citrix Service" in the other server. The Presentation Server is 4.5. I was trying to figure out if IMA was enable in the farm, and in such a case, how to get the key to use it in the deployment of a subsequent server.

There is no "key" for IMA Service.  The Independent Management Architecture service is what the "IMA Service" is called.

I am not familiar with citrix products. I am "playing" with adding a new server to the farm and at this point, all that I wanted to know was if the current server had or not IMA enable, and if it was enable, if there was a way to get the key from the current server to use in subsequent server. But it was always a question.

Citrix does not use "keys" for installing products.  As long as you have valid product licenses installed on a Citrix license server, you can install as many XenApp servers as you wish.

All you need to do is install XenApp on a server and during the install you can select the option to Join an existing farm.  Point the server to the data store and you are good to go.
