Hi Hector,

If you've got more than one Citrix server and you want any sort of
redundancy, then putting the datastore on a proper database (SQL, MSDE, SQL
Express 2005, Oracle etc) which ISN'T hosted on a Citrix server is kind of

Migrating/copying the datastore isn't that hard, and MSDE or SQL Express
2005 (depending on the number of servers you've got) works perfectly well.
Just remember to treat the datstore SQL instance like the important data it
