Allocate CADS Service Self Managed capacity to ADC instances

You can allocate the CADS Service Self Managed entitlement and capacity in two ways:

To allocate CADS Service Self Managed capacity from the Citrix ADM GUI:

  1. Log in to Citrix ADM.

  2. Navigate to Infrastructure > Self Managed > Bandwidth Licenses > Self Managed Pool.

  3. Click the license pool that you want to manage - Standard, Advanced or Premium.


    The Allocated Capacity field does not reflect the changed bandwidth immediately. The bandwidth change takes effect after the ADC warm restart.

    In Allocation Details, the Requested and Applied fields are updated when you change the instance’s bandwidth allocation.

  4. Select an ADC instance from the list of available instances by clicking the > button.
