We are running an evaluation copy of a xenserver license for 6.1.  We are ok going to the free version.  Is it ok to go from a full version down to the free version and if so how do I do this?

Thanks

Yes, You can use it.

Q: Can you use an existing Citrix License Server for XenServer?
A: Yes. If you have an existing license server, the transition to version 6 licensing in XenServer dramatically simplifies license management. Upload the XenServer license, and point the XenServer hosts to the IP address or Hostname of the license server.
