System requirements for Citrix Licensing

Requirements for Licensing


For License Server VPX requirements, see Requirements for installing License Server VPX.

Citrix Licensing is compatible with the same hardware required to support the compatible operating systems. No additional hardware is required.


  • We do not support running third party vendor daemons on the Citrix License Server, or the Citrix vendor daemon on third party license servers.

  • The License Server does not support multi-homing (two network cards plugged into distinct networks).

  • The License Administration Console manages the License Server on the computer on which it is installed. It doesn’t manage remote or third party License Servers. The Citrix Licensing Manager installs licenses only on the License Server where it is installed. We recommend installing the License Server on server operating systems only. Any server or client operating system using a web browser can access the consoles. License Servers don’t communicate with each other.

Operating system:

You can install the License Server on servers running the following Microsoft operating systems. We recommend that you install the latest Microsoft Service Pack and updates.

  • Windows Server 2019 Family
  • Windows Server 2016 Family
  • Windows Server 2012 R2 Family

Server Core installations are not supported.

Disk space requirement:

  • 161 MB for the licensing components
  • 2 GB for user/device licensing
  • More disk space might be required based on the amount of historical data that is configured in the Citrix Licensing Manager.

Microsoft .NET Framework minimum requirements:

  • Microsoft .NET Framework 4.7.2

Cluster platforms:

  • Windows Server 2019 Family
