Login to specific terminal server on tsfarm

Hi,

We have a terminal server farm with 3 terminal servers (2008), and we have the session broker for a load-balance.

My problem is, I will sometime log in to a specific server with rdp, without going through the farm, but what I understand, the session broker sends me to the server with smallest load.

(How) can I log in to (i.e.) server1 with rdp, without the farm sends me to server2?

Regards
Peter

You could always just RDP to the host name and not the NLBS cluster name.

It didn't help.
We tried with the hostname (server1), the server ip of server1, and we created an alias in the DNS for the one of server for testing. Nothing helped.

When we connect to the server1 it is connects and logging in to server1 but when its loading finish, we are connected to server2.

If you connect to the IP address of the node it will bypass NLBS.  Make sure you are connecting to the IP of the node and not the NLBS.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

We tested even connect with the ip for the server1 and the same thing happens.......

What I think, that efter logging in to the server1, then the session broker checks what server in the farm has the lowest session number and sends me to that server insted to stay server1.

You must use the /admin switch. At the run command type mstsc.exe /admin. This will bypass the broker and direct you to the Terminal server you specify. If you create a shortcut, use %SystemRoot%\system32\mstsc.exe /ADMIN. Hope this helps.

Find a solotion...

On the server witch hold the tsfarm session broker was an OU in Active Directory Users and Computers for the servers (we call it TS).
In there were listed all servers those vas our terminal servers.

Right click the server1 => Properties => Member Of => remove Session Directory Computers
Then go to server1 and open Terminal Services Configuration (Administrative Tools => Remote Desktop Services => open Desktop Session Host Configuration)
Double-click on Member of farm in RD Connection Broker . In the middle check out Use IP address redirection
In the Select IP addresses to be used for reconnection box, select the check box next to each IP address that you want to use.
