Citrix XenApp 6.0 License Server Update not taking effect
Posted on 2016-10-12
Recently we changed the name of the server which holds the license for our XenApp 6 farm.
In the Delivery Services Console I updated the policy which dictates the License server name, saved and exited. The Policy updated onscreen with the new value.
I then hit refresh and it reverts to the old value.
I've tried rebooting the server, restarting Citrix services and checking for any Hot fixes but can't find anything to force this change.
I also tried deleting the policy, creating a new one with the new license server name. This shows the exact same behaviour; showing on screen until i hit refresh and then the old policy re-appears.
I've checked the registry for the following keys;
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Citrix\LSName was not present so I created it, configuring the new server name.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Citrix\Licensing\MFCM_LSHostName was blank. Again I updated it with the new server name.
I've since rebooted the server again but still get the warning but it can't contact the server.
Citrix won't give me much help as XenApp 6 is unsupported.
Any ideas guys?
