Migrate Citrix License Server (XenApp 6.5)

Last Modified: 2015-03-03
Hello.  We have a production XenApp 6.5 environment in which there are several XenApp servers and a separate Citrix License Server which is also the RDS Cal Server.  My question is, we are migrating these servers to a new Windows Domain (same XenApp farm) and a new Server has been built for this purpose to replace the existing XenApp 6.5 License Server.

So, what is the best way to migrate the licenses from one server to another without too much disruption?  Can they co-exist with the same licenses for the purpose of configuring the new server, or do I need to go to mycitrix and reallocate them and assign to the new host?  What are the best steps to complete this process with minimal downtime?

An additional question, should I continue to keep the Citrix License server at version 11.10 for XenApp 6.5 or use the current License Server 11.12 which is available for XenApp 7, but supports older versions?

Thanks in advance for your help.
