We use Citrix XenApp.  I need to get a count of how many unique users logged into all of our different XenApp servers so I can make sure we have enough RDS CALs.  How can I do that?  Is there an audit tool that can pull that report from all the servers for me?

You don't say whether you're using v6.5 or v7.x, which will make a difference.  Plus,  you're using concurrent licensing, right?

Take a look directly at your RDS License Server.  Run a report to tell you how many licenses are in use.

Also for license count in citrix you can try the edgesight for license tracking.

RDS per-device CALs: associates a license with a specific device & 
RDS per-user CALs: associates a license with a specific user account

For RDS cals count you can use the power shell to get the status

RDS CALs are suppose to be per a unique user in the past 60 days, correct?  If so, how do I see how many 'unique' users logged in, in the past 60 days to Citrix?

You can purchase RDS CALs based on user or device.  Is it possible that you have purchased per-device CALs with multiple users accessing from those devices?
