I have a question about the Citrix XenApp Evaluation Virtual Appliance (EVA).

We are trying to get this set up to our desired config with a view to purchasing full licenses once we're happy with what we have.

Is it possible to set up two EVAs (that is, TWO separate VMs) and attach them to the same Server Farm? With load balancing and associated functions?

(If so, how? Two distinctly licensed downloaded .vhds with different names, maybe?)

Is this even something Citrix with the Evaluation version?

Any tips or pointers welcome

Isn't the appliance still based on XA6? Why not just get eval licenses for XenApp and build a new farm with multiple servers using the eval licenses? If you then decide to purhcase, you could then just apply the full license to your existing test infrastructure. – Rex Jul 3 '13 at 18:27
Thanks Rex. Problem seems to be renaming the second appliance. Can't have two XenApp servers called "ctxs-xa1" in the same farm, I think. – JohnnyT Jul 5 '13 at 17:16
In general, you can't have two servers with the same name on the same network let alone the same citrix farm. – Rex Jul 5 '13 at 17:42
