Installing and Configuring Citrix XenApp 6
Configuring License Server and Installing Licenses
Back at the Role Manager window click Configure under License Server.
Enter a password for the “admin” user on the license server web console. Click OK. When I installed the License Server on the same server as the XenApp server, it gave me an error about the Management Console Web Port already being in use.
If this happens to you, change the Management Console Web Port to something like 8081 to get past the License Server Configuration screen.
Go to Start > All Programs > Citrix > Management Consoles > License Administration Console.
Select Administration on the upper right side of the page.
Logon with the “admin” user and password specified earlier. Optionally check Remember Me so you don’t have to log on in the future. Click Submit.
Scroll down and select “Vendor Daemon Configuration” on the left side of the screen. Then click “Import License” at the top.
Click the Browse button to find your license file. The import of the license file is kind of tricky, it may give you an error that the license does not have a consistent server host ID. Rest assured, it is. Go to Start > Administrative Tools > Services.
On the right side scroll down to the Citrix Licensing service, right click and select restart. Close the Services MMC. Now if you go back to the License Server Console, click Dashboard on the top right and the license should be registered. Now close Internet Explorer.
You are now returned to the Role Manager screen. Click Close.
Go to Start > All Programs > Citrix > Management Consoles > Citrix Delivery Services Console.
It will ask about disabled authenticode signature check, I selected Disable.
It will run a discovery process to find your new Citrix farm. Click Next. At least I think that’s next, my screen resolution is set too small!
When presented with product selections leave the XenApp option checked and uncheck Single Sign On. Click Next.
Click the Add Local Computer button to allow the console to browse it for available services. Click Next.
Once discovery has completed click Finish, or at least I think that is finish! Click the middle button. You should now be presented with the Delivery Services Console.
In the left tree go to Citrix Resources > XenApp > Policies. Then on the right pane select the Computer tab. Select the Unfiltered policy under Citrix Computer Policies, then click Edit.
On the Left side select Licensing. Then on the right select Add next to “License server host name”.
Type the name of your license server, then click OK.
Click Add next to “License server port”.
Make sure the value says 27000, then click OK.
Click Save. Now we’ll be returned to the Delivery Services Console window.
