Citrix XenApp 6 AD Integration

I am working with a Citrix XenApp 6 farm. We inherited this client and Citrix was already configured. Users access Citrix with AD credentials. All is working right now, but we are demoting the old domain controller. I am wondering if this will break AD authentication with Citrix. I assume somewhere is a setting that points Citrix to the domain controller to authenticate with AD, however I can not find the setting.

Is there a setting for this, and if so where is it so I can redirect Citrix to new DC before demoting old DC. Thank you.

As long as there is more than one DC in the environment, you have nothing to worry about. Citrix uses the XML Broker service to do an LDAP query to the first available DC .

There is no specific settings to configure specific AD server. As Carl said you are good to go with demoting the old AD server.

Unless your AD is screwed up or you have multiple AD Sites and you are missing Subnets in Sites & Services, you should have absolutely no issues.
