Citrix XenApp and Windows RDS Licensing Event ID 4105

Last Modified: 2015-07-03
We have two Citrix XenApp servers – “CTX1” and “CTX2” respectively. On CTX1 we’re seeing Event ID 4105 in the Windows System log. Apparently this error is related to Remote Desktop Services licensing. After digging a little deeper I found that CTX1 is configured as our RDS licensing server. This seems less than ideal, because we have another server, “CTXWeb”, which is handling our Citrix Licensing. It seems like RDS licensing should also be on CTXWeb. So a couple of questions for the experts:

1) Could Event ID 4105 be negatively impacting our Citrix environment? (We’ve had issues with disconnects and sessions freezing the past few months.)

2) Would it be a better scenario if we moved RDS licensing onto CTXWeb where the Citrix licensing also resides? Or should they be on separate servers?

We’ve been trying to get our VPN experience to be as smooth as possible, so any “best practices” you can suggest would be appreciated.
