Citrix farm

I am adding a new server to an existing citrix farm. The three current citrix servers have c and d drive mapped to M and N

Do I need to remap the drive letters of the new server to match existing  servers before joining

It is citrix metaframe 4.5 and windows server 2003

Yes I would have all the servers match.  More recent versions of the product no longer allow drive remapping so do plan on M and N in the future.

You would need to have separate published apps.  One for C drive and one for M drive.

Thank you Mr CarlWebster
One last confirmation. I am just going to publish the server desktop to few selected users, not going to publish any apps.
So, you are saying, it can be done. different servers in a farm having different drive names
I was just worried that if I dont have same drive naming convention, I may stuff the  something in the farm

thanks

Yes, published desktop should fulfill your requirement. In future, if you wish to remap the newly added server drives to m and n, you also have another option through remap drive utility.
