The main reason you activate a license is when you move from trial mode to a XenApp and XenDesktop Platinum license.

When you activate a XenApp and XenDesktop Platinum license, it is imported into the AppDNA licensing service and applied to a specific AppDNA database.

Note: Activating a Platinum license automatically unlocks applications.

To activate a license file:

  1. From the Windows Start menu on the AppDNA server machine, choose Citrix AppDNA > Management Tools > Configure AppDNA.

  2. In the first step in the Configure AppDNA Environment wizard, choose Licensing.

  3. In the License Management step, choose Activate.

  4. In the Choose Database step, choose the database for which you want to activate a license.

  5. To activate AppDNA using a XenDesktop or XenApp Platinum license, select Activate a XenDesktop or XenApp Platinum license.

    1. In the Machine box, enter the host name or IP address of the machine on which the XenDesktop or XenApp license server is installed.
    2. Enter the license server port in the Port box. By default, this is 27000. However, sometimes a different port is used. If in doubt, contact your XenDesktop or XenApp administrator.
  6. If a System Check fails, refer to System Check issues.

  7. Click Next to activate the license file.

    When the activation has finished, the wizard displays a message if you must unlock the applications in the Apply Licenses screen.
