Multiple Server Farms can exist side by side, but each is completely ignorant of the other. Users must authenticate to whichever Server Farm they are trying to access and MetaFrame servers may only belong to one Server Farm at a time. Multiple Server Farms can be necessary in environments with large geographical distances between sites, or multiple-domain environments where Windows trust relationships cannot be established.

MetaFrame Server Tools

MetaFrame has an expanded tool set to manage the ICA environment. These tools allow an administrator to manage the server connections, create client disks, and publish applications. Here is a list of the management tools available and a brief description of their functions.

Activation Wizard To activate a Citrix license, you must obtain the proper activation code from Citrix and enter it in the Citrix Licensing utility. Most Citrix products have a grace period in which you are allowed to use the license before activation (35 days for a base MetaFrame license). You can use the Activation Wizard to connect to a published application running on Citrix’s own servers to obtain the activation codes for your licenses.

Citrix Connection Configuration The Citrix Connection Configuration (CCC) provides the same functionality as the Terminal Services Configuration utility in Windows 2000. MetaFrame installs additional features that allow you to configure alternative protocols and ICA direct dial in.

Citrix Server Administration Citrix Server Administration is an expanded version of Terminal Services Manager for Windows 2000. Although the two look remarkably similar, CSA adds additional tabs at the bottom of the screen to access Published Applications properties, view Server Farms, and display ICA video connections. Additionally, the CSA is used to configure the master browser settings for each server. Notice the differences between the CSA and the TSM in Figure 1.15.
