Remote Desktop Services (RDS) RemoteApp With Failover and Redundancy???

Last Modified: 2013-11-21
Dear Sir,

I want to deploy Remote Desktop Services (RDS) on Win 2008 R2 with RemoteApp, then publish Office 2007, Adobe Reader and our local application using .msi files through group policy to users desktops... I will not use Remote Web Access...
I will run RDS native on a physical server not under Hyper-V to have the maximum performance...
My Documents for the uses are redirected to a File server using Folder Redirection Policy...
I already had the setup above on one server...

My question is, I need to have a failover and redundancy in my environment if one RDS server goes down.
What do I need to configure and set up to have full redundancy?
We will have 2 identical HP RDS servers, with 40GB memory and 2 Quad-Cores for 40 to 50 users.
What I need to Do? NLB or RDS Farm connection broker...?

Please I need a step by step guide and if possible with screen shots on what do I need to configure to have full redundancy?

Thank You!
