Thank you, Mike. Unfortunately that is not my personal experience with XCP. The schema with XCP 1.1 BETA and XC did acted the opposite. When the day X came on one of the hosts, all guests machines stopped answering. I had to cheat the expire data as it was recommended online some time ago. My main issue is that I am a heavy user of the XS5.5update 3. Citrix declined to upgrade my old licenses to the new ones, so I can not use them with the new licensing server. So I explore an opportunity to switch the production to XCP. All those details are important. What would you recommend to use as the management tool for XCP, then?

The actual license expiry is fixed in the RC. The issue that you see is a XenCenter problem. XenCenter doesn't understand the difference between XCP and XS -- all it sees is a XS machine without a license, so it shows you the annoying license nag dialog. XenCenter isn't a part of XCP, and the XenCenter team doesn't currently have any plans to make it XCP aware.

Again, the license nag dialog from XenCenter is expected and benign. Your XCP "license" won't expire.
