Citrix License Server for Windows upgrade

Here’s a step by step upgrade guide for upgrading the Citrix License Server to version 11.10. This guide is written based on a Windows 2008 R2 server.

Important: Before starting the upgrade it is always recommended that you have a backup of your license files and server. You can find the license files in the installation directory and then the “MyFiles” folder.
