We recently purchased some 2008 R2 RDS cals that we are going to be using to implement a new xenapp farm running on 2008 R2.

However in the meantime we are still running our old 2003 R2 citrix farm that uses TS cals. I would like to switch the license server from the old TS cal server to the new 2008 RDS cal license server.

From what I have read the 2008 R2 cals should be able to be used on the older clients. I have not however seen any instructions for pointing the old TS server to the new RDS licensing server.

I have seen the articles about migrating the CALS etc but we are not going that route. We are simply looking to leave the old TS cals behind and point to the new RDS license server for our 2003 TS servers.

When I open the TS licensing on  the 2003 Citrix server it automatically locates the old license server but I would like to make it so that it looks to the new RDS server instead.
