System requirements for Citrix Licensing

Requirements for Licensing

Citrix Licensing is compatible with the same hardware required to support the compatible operating systems. Additional hardware is not required.

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

  • The Citrix Licensing Manager installs licenses only on the License Server where it is installed.
