How to delete License's on XenDesktop

Please check out for more of my technical posts, alternately please call us on 01932 268289. 

Every now and then you'll find that you might need to delete a few licenses on your XenDesktop installation generally due to over usage, bit of a pain when a user gets this error as it displays an error about not enough licenses available.

First from where you have installed the license server run the following commands from C:\Program Files (x86)\Citrix\Licensing\LS

udadmin -list

This will display who is currently using a license and when it is due to expire.

siobhan.andrews XDT_ENT_UD 2013.0815
stephen.dunn XDT_ENT_UD 2013.0815
steve.jerome XDT_ENT_UD 2013.0731
suzanne.ballantine XDT_ENT_UD 2013.0815
sylvia.munn XDT_ENT_UD 2013.0815
teena.omara XDT_ENT_UD 2013.0815

Next find the user who you want to delete and then type the following command.

udadmin -f XDT_ENT_UD -user teena.omara -delete

you have now released a license

udadmin -list
Displays all the users and devices.

udadmin -list -a
Lists all features, versions, counts of licenses, and the users and devices for each feature.

udadmin -f XDT_ENT_UD -user u8.08 -delete
Releases one user from one feature.

udadmin -f XDT_ENT_UD -device dn01.88 -delete
Releases one device from one feature.

  1. Usefull post.I have one problem.Maybe you can solve it.When I delete license on XenDesktop for one user,and add another user instead of it, user cant be seen with udadmin -list.Why?When I list udadmin I can't see either lastname of username.I just see name.
