Hi all,

Have a small network with 105 concurrent citrix licenses. We have a Presentation 4.5 farm which I am just upgrading to Xenapp6.5. I will need both farms to connect to a license server.

I understand that I need to reallocate and install the current license server.

If I reallocate my license to the new 6.5 license server, and point the existing 4.5 servers at the license server will they both work ??

Your older licenses should still work, however it is required to bring your license server version up to 11.9 for 100% compatability with XenApp 6.5.You can use single license server for both the farms.

So pointing 4.5 server at a 11.9 licence server is compatible?

Currently we are using Citrix Xenapp 4.5 Platinum Edition servers in farm and Xenapp 6.5 in another farm.We are using only one license server 11.9.

Its good to upgrade the license server to latest version 11.10, and map both farm to same license server to avoid license usage issue. if you map both the farm to same license server its easy to manage the license and usage of license.
