Remote Desktop Services

RDS supports sessions and license management, with many improvements to the user experience and license management functions. It also includes native virtual machine (VM) support, as well as server roles to facilitate discovery, connection brokering, server farms (for larger-scale deployments and redundancy) and secure WAN access.

The RDS server role

Formerly known as Terminal Server, Remote Desktop Session Host (RD Session Host) server is the RDS server role. It can deliver both full desktops and individual applications, known as RemoteApp programs. It?s ideal for highly scalable application delivery. Multiple users can log into an RD Session Host server and run applications independently of each other.

Licensing model

The model you choose should depend on whether you have more users or computers. Remember that RDS supports both:
____________________

per-user licensing

per-device licensing

Licensing Requirements


____________________

A license for each connecting user or device

Once the licensing grace period is passed, you must have a license for each connecting user or device to connect to an RD Session Host server. You'll also need to activate the RDS Licensing on the server.

Move RDS CALs to new hardware

You'll need to purchase RDS Client Access Licenses (CALs) and install them on the RDS Licensing Server. These RDS CALs will be tied to the server, but RDS lets you move them to new hardware when needed.

Note that
_____

  • You can virtualize an RD Session Host server, but you'll likely see a reduction in the number of simultaneous sessions it can support. Be sure to model on the same machine type (physical or virtual) you intend to use.
  • RDS does not have concurrent-user licensing, and the licenses you select must match the mode for which you configure the RD Session Host server.

Minimize cost
_____

  • If you do build a virtual RD Session Host server, you should probably use a server with a processor supporting second-level address translation (SLAT) to reduce the overhead of memory mapping between the physical machine and the VMs.
  • To minimize cost, its also advisable to use a Type 1 hypervisor like Hyper-V, not a Type 2.

Installation of Windows Remote Desktop Services 2008

Install the RD Licensing role service just as you did the RD Session Host role service. Then you must:
____________________
