Good day,

I would like to build redundancy into a Remote Desktop Web Access 2008 R2, which is connected to a Remote Desktop Connection broker. Can you suggest options for clustering or load balancing the RDWA role in the event the server fails? I would like clients to continue to be able to connect to the RDWA page and launch a RemoteApp session.

Thank you!

The Exchange team is no longer recommending nlb for Exchange clusters, so I would avoid that. Do you have a SAN to store you databases on? What hardware do you have?

I am using NLB (Windows Server 2008 R2) in my LAB environment, for both my App-V Web Service as well as App-V Management Server and it works fine. (Different NLBs).
I am pretty sure you can use NLB for you RDWA page. Infact I going to use my same App-V Web Server for RDWA when I setup RDS LAB (somewhere in the near future). You can setup a NLB in unicast mode (because its easier to setup) and use the NLB IP or FQDN in the broker.

Hope that made sense.

Regards,
Shahid
