Will not work.  Don't even try it.  Had one customer try it and it corrupted 
their farm data store and they had no backup!

It is well documented in the XenApp 6.x eDocs to not do this.



  *   Do not install XenApp on a domain controller. Citrix does not support 
installing XenApp on a domain controller.
  *   Do not join servers running this XenApp version to a deployment with 
servers running previous XenApp versions (including early release and Technical 
Preview versions).
  *   You must use the AppCenter from the 6.5 media to manage the XenApp 6.5 
farm. Citrix does not support using a console from a previous XenApp release to 
manage XenApp 6.5 farms. (However, you can use the AppCenter from the XenApp 
6.5 media to manage a XenApp 6.0 farm.)

Subject: [THIN] Xenapp 4.5 and 6.X in same farm?

Can a 32-bit Citrix XenApp 4.5 server exist in a XenApp 6.0 or 6.5 farm, or is 
that forbidden?
