pvd not showing up in active directory

Installing a new domain. Both DC's are Windows 2008 standard. I implemented a clustered Hyper-V setup to do personal  virtual desktops and remote app. I am at a loss here and cannot figure out why, but in Active Directory, the personal virtual desktop tab is now showing up. Plus, in Group Policy, the Remote Desktop folder is not there either. I know it's obvious that something isn't installed on the domain but I don't know what. Does anybody know?

In order to use pvd you will need to install remote desktop services, remote desktop licensing manager (unless using another licensing server),  Remote Desktop Session host configuration, and Remote Desktop Web Access.  This role and these role services will give you what you seek.

I understand that and have done that. I five servers:

ServerA: Virtual host 1
ServerB: Virtual host 2
ServerC: Web access and licensing
ServerD: Connection Broker and Gateway
ServerE: Session Host

These are all installed but the active directory and group policy objects still do not appear. Maybe a reboot of everything?

I checked in ADSI Edit and I can see the attribute there (msTSProperty01) ... but still nothing showing up in the AD Console. I have two domain controllers and it isn't showing on either. Everything is running Server 2008 in 2008 AD mode.

Won't show up on my DC running 2008 standard. But will show up on the other running 2008 R2 .. interesting.

Remote Desktop Services is only supported in Server 2008 R2 as well as the integration of virtual hosted desktops through hyper V.  Server 2008 used terminal services not remote desktop services.  That is why you will not see this on a server 2008 domain controller as the feature is not supported.
