PART 5 – Citrix XenApp 6.5 License Server Installation

In the last post, we have successfully installed and configured Microsoft Remote Desktop Licensing server. In this part, I will guide you through the Citrix License Server Installation. First, we will need to install the required components such as the .NET feature and its services.

On XA65, Launch Server Manager, click Add Features

Choose the .NET Framework 3.5.1 Feature

Add the required features by clicking the “Add Required Role Services” button.

Click Next on the IIS introduction.

Leave everything as default for Role services.

Click Next then click Install.

Wait for the installation to go through.

Click Close when done.

In WmWare Workstation, insert the XenApp6.5 ISO file into XA65 Virtual Machine (under VM / CDROM menu).

Open DVD in XA65. Most of the time, the Autorun automatically launches. Click Autorun.exe.

Click Manually Install Components.

Click Common Components

Click Citrix Licensing

Accept the License.

Accept default installation location. Click Install.

Click Finish when done.

The License Server Configuration Tool windows pops up after installation. Note the port: 27000, 7279, 8082 and enter password (Pass1234).

  • Port 27000 = License
  • Port 7279 = Deamon
  • Port 8082 = Web management port

Click OK to dismiss the License Server Configuration Tool dialog box.

The minimum requirement for XenApp License is Version is 11.9. However, With version 11.10, there is an AD integration which is easier for user management.
