RDS Farm - How to ?

Hi all,

we're deploying an RDS Farm to be used with thinclients only.

So far I've done :
- Deploy a VM with RD Session Broker
- Deploy a first VM with RD Session Host
- Deploy a second VM with RD Session Host
- Join both RDSH servers to a farm, managed by the RDSB server
- Setup DNS with round-robin

Now, as far as I can tell, the load balancing seems to work, RDP into my far will connect me alternatively to the first or the second RDSH.  Fine.

Questions :
- Where do I deploy my applications ? both RDSH I'm guessing ?
- What is the best practise as far as users go ? If I want a mandatory desktop and start menu, where do I store it ? How do I prevent folder sync if I use folder redirection ? Should I use Roaming Profiles ? How do I store my users profile anywhere but on C:\Users on the RDSH ?
- Do I still need NLB or will the RDSB do its job without it ?

Thanks for these.

1.)Yes you need to install on both the RD SH server
2.)Use group policy and scripts to setup the desktop and start menu.You don't need to use romain profiles it up to you.But would be handy if did it.
3.)Use folder redirection so that My documents get redirected to Home drive.
