Citrix Application Delivery Management service

Transition from a built-in agent to an external agent

You might have started with using ADM service for management and monitoring only, and later you might want to use other features such as pooled licensing and analytics. For that, you must transition from the built-in ADM service agent to an external agent.

The built-in agent supports only ADM management and monitoring features. For other ADM features such as pooled licensing and analytics, you need an external agent. This document covers the steps for transitioning from an existing ADM built-in agent to an external hypervisor-based agent.

Before you start

Install an external agent before you start transitioning. Follow the procedure given in the topic Install Citrix ADM agent on-premises.
