No product licenses found on the license server for the selected model

When running the XenApp Configuration Wizard you may get the following error.

There are many reasons this may occur but I have noticed it always occurs with the latest version of the licensing server 11.10 whether you have specified the correct Product Type or not. The work around for me was to choose “Select the model at a later time”

This will let you complete the wizard. You can then use Citrix policies to set the license server location, port and model type at which point everything works.

2) Expand the Network node
3) Click on RPC
4) Select the NSIP (NetScaler admin IP Address)

Installing Windows 8 on XenServer

Having trouble installing the recently released developer preview on XenServer ?

Thomas Koetzing has the fix on his blog

Create a VM with a Windows 7 template and copy the virtual machine UUID from the general tab in XenCenter or use xe vm-list in the CLI. Next you need to run the command xe vm-param-set uuid=<VMUUID> platform:viridian=false

The installation can the proceed as normal.
