XenMobile 10.8 database requirements

XenMobile requires one of the following databases:

  • Microsoft SQL Server

    The XenMobile repository supports a Microsoft SQL Server database running on one of the following supported versions. For more information about Microsoft SQL Server databases, see Microsoft SQL Server.

    • Microsoft SQL Server 2016
    • Microsoft SQL Server 2014 SP1
    • Microsoft SQL Server 2012 R2 SP3
    • Microsoft SQL Server 2012

    XenMobile supports SQL Basic Availability Groups (Always On Availability Groups) and SQL Clustering for database high availability.

    Citrix recommends using Microsoft SQL remotely.


    Ensure that the service account of the SQL Server to be used with XenMobile has the DBcreator role permission. Record the SQL server account password that you specify during XenMobile Server installation. That password is required if you need to clone the XenMobile database during XenMobile Server recovery.

    For more information about SQL Server service accounts, see the following pages on the Microsoft Developer Network site. These links point to information for SQL Server 2014. If you are using a different version, choose your server version from the Other Versions list:

  • PostgreSQL (for test environments only). PostgreSQL is included with XenMobile. You can use it locally or remotely in test environments. Database migration is not supported. You can’t move databases created in a test environment to a production environment.

    All XenMobile editions support Remote PostgreSQL 9.5.1 and 9.5.11 for Windows with the following limitations: Support for up to 300 devices. Use on-premises SQL Server for more than 300 devices. No support for clustering.
