Citrix XenApp Sever failed due to hardware failure

Hello Experts

We have two citrix xenapp 6.5 ervers in the farm.
Web Interface, Licensing and Data Store are installed on seperate servers respectively

One of the Xenapp server crashed to due to hardware and we cannot bring it online anymore

Hence we decided to reinstall the xenapp on seperate server

I need to know proper procedure to reinstall xenapp on new server and join to farm.

Please help.

Thanks James for sharing the article but its about installation
However I would like to know the procedure before adding the server to existing farm
As mentioned the server failed due to hardware failure therefore we didn't get the chance to uninstall the application.

Install, choose add to existing farm when prompted by the installer. Supply the database server details and credentials to connect to the database. Supply the licensing server names and XML port. Select right license type. Restart when prompted and it will be added to the farm. Then add the server to worker groups or application lists as necessary.

Do I need to remove from server farm before rejoining ?

If you're joining under the same name, yes I would remove the existing server from the farm before creating a new one. I believe there is a function on the context menu to remove it from the farm

I have installed a new server with new name
Its added to existing farm
But when launching the Citrix App Center, no Farm name is appearing and no published apps is shown

Please advise

Appcenter launched from where? If you launched it from the new server, what did you put in as the address of the discovery server? You need to provide the address of a data collector (not sure what this would be in your environment, maybe the existing xenapp server?)

I was able to successfully install and configure Xenapp 6.5. The new server is added to existing farm.
Just facing small issue with scanning, the scanners are not detected.
I already followed this article but no luck.
