Licensing

 

Licensing of Citrix SCOM Management Pack for XenApp and XenDesktop depends on licensing of the monitored product, XenApp and XenDesktop. For Citrix SCOM Management Pack for XenApp and XenDesktop to operate properly and remain fully functional, its licensing must be covered. During installation or upgrade, no further actions are necessary on either the SCOM management server or the computers that host the product's Agent and Machine Agent instances.

 

Covered licensing means that the following conditions are fulfilled:

The XenApp and XenDesktop Site that you plan to monitor uses a Platinum license within either maintenance program: Subscription Advantage, Software Maintenance.

 

Subscription Advantage Date (of the Platinum license) falls after the Subscription Advantage Eligibility date that is embedded into binary files of the current version of Citrix SCOM Management Pack for XenApp and XenDesktop. For instructions on how to check this, see Install and Configure. In Citrix product documentation, Subscription Advantage Eligibility date may also be referred to as product burn-in date. Important: The Subscription Advantage Eligibility date of this product release is 2017.1101

 

Example: If the Subscription Advantage Date of your Platinum license for XenApp and XenDesktop is 2016.0531 (meaning 31 May 2016), and the Subscription Advantage Eligibility date of Citrix SCOM Management Pack for XenApp and XenDesktop is 2016.0518 (meaning 18 May 2016), the product remains fully functional after 31 May 2016, provided your XenApp and XenDesktop license remains valid (unexpired). If you upgrade to a later version of Citrix SCOM Management Pack for XenApp and XenDesktop whose Subscription Advantage Eligibility date is, for example, 2016.0710 (meaning 10 July 2016), Citrix SCOM Management Pack for XenApp and XenDesktop stops gathering and reporting new data (topology updates, incoming alerts, newly discovered objects).

 

Renewal after expired XenApp and XenDesktop License

It may take up to 24 hours for the Citrix SCOM Management Pack Agent for XenApp and XenDesktop instances to detect renewal of an expired Platinum license in the XenApp and XenDesktop Site. After such license renewal, to restore licensing coverage of XenApp and XenDesktop on Delivery Controllers (agent-managed computers) immediately, do the following:

1. On a Delivery Controller, stop the Citrix MPXAXD Agent service by using an operating system tool.

2. From the db subfolder of the Agent's data files folder (%ProgramData%\Citrix\XenDesktop MP Agent by default), remove the agent-license-info.json file.

3. Start the Citrix MPXAXD Agent service again.

4. Repeat steps 1 to 3 on each additional Delivery Controller.
