HOW TO

Direct Citrix clients to different license manager servers

Last Published: April 25, 2020

Summary

The instructions provided describe how to direct ArcGIS clients in the Citrix environment to different license manager servers.

Procedure

For each ArcGIS client, set the license file variable as a User level environment variable. Ensure there are no other conflicting ESRI_LICENSE_FILE, ARCGIS_LICENSE_FILE, or LM_LICENSE_FILE variables set as a System or User environment variable.

  • For 9.x, 10.x, and later:
    Variable: ARCGIS_LICENSE_FILE
    Value: @license_server_hostname
  • For 8.x clients and license servers:
    Variable: ESRI_LICENSE_FILE
    Value: @license_server_hostname
    Note:
    The license file environment variable takes precedence over the License Manager setting in the Desktop Administrator.
