Will XenDesktop 56 farm fail,if it loses connectivity to Citrix license server?

Hello there,

Will XenDesktop 56 farm fail,if it loses connectivity to Citrix license server? There is no grace period and if it lost connectivity for more than 4 mins, then, the xendesktops in the farm will fail or stop working.

Please advise, if so, can I please have URL links to Citrix KB articles supporting above statement.

Thanks and Regards

So please confirm for XD 56, grace period is 3 hours?
What happens if my license server is offline for maintenance activity?

There is a standard 30-day grace period that allows your systems to continue to function without degradation of performance or denial of service to support license server maintenance requirements
Does any failure of the Citrix License Server create degradation in performance or denial of service to users?

No. The 30-day grace period feature in XenDesktop prevents customers from experiencing degradation in performance and denial of service to users as the result of a license server failure.
