FlexNet Manager Suite 2022 R1 (On-Premises)
The XenApp server adapter requires the following:
  • The executable and supporting files for the XenApp server agent. These are available as described in Creating the Staging Database.
  • The XenApp server (on which the XenApp server agent is installed) requires:
    • .NET version 4.5 or greater
    • PowerShell 2.0 or greater.
  • A staging database that can run in a convenient Microsoft SQL Server instance. For example, this may be a database running on the inventory beacon, or on the XenApp server hosting the XenApp server agent, or on your central operations databases for FlexNet Manager Suite. For more about the requirements for this database,, see Creating the Staging Database.database
    Tip: As outlined in Architecture and Operation, it is possible to use additional command-line options for the XenApp server agent to remove the need for a staging database, and instead upload directly to an inventory beacon. Once the inventory beacon uploads the collected data to the pre-staging tables within the compliance database, the XenApp server adapter on the inventory beacon can continue operations as though these pre-staging tables were the staging database.
  • An inventory beacon (or multiple if required) that collects Active Directory data for the domain(s) where your XenApp server(s) are located.
  • An inventory beacon (possibly the same as in the previous point) that can connect to your staging database and upload the inventory to the central FlexNet Manager Suite database. This process is performed by the XenApp server adapter on the inventory beacon.
  • If you are using XenApp 6.x with the recommended EdgeSight server, an inventory beacon (almost invariably the same one as in the previous point) that can connect to the EdgeSight database.
    Tip: For XenApp 6.x with EdgeSight, also be sure to take inventory from your XenApp servers so that edition information is available to your license consumption calculations. This inventory may also be collected by an appropriate inventory beacon.
  • If you are using Citrix XenApp 7.6 (or later) or Citrix Virtual Apps 7.1808 (or later), an inventory beacon (usually the same one) that can connect to your XenDesktop database, and uploaded the imported data to your central operations databases.
