We are setting up several Remote Desktop Servers running on Hyper-V.

What are the traditional methods for protecting these machines from Malware?  While we will have some control over what the users can and cannot do, I am not sure that it is enough to completely avoid some form of AV.

Thanks!

From my experience with virtualization, you treat these systems exactly as you would a physical system.  So, having said that, any commercial based AV (nod32, kapersky, etc.) would be an appropriate level of protection.  Running a virtualized environment without protection is just as dangerous as running a regular system without protection.

Does this have any direct consequences with the Remote Desktop Services?

As the AV solution agent will run as a system service, even if your terminal session specifies access to only one application, the service will be running on the virtual machine and keep it protected.
