Terminal Service Cluster Serving RemoteApps

Last Modified: 2013-11-21
I have 3 Virtual Servers running Windows Server 2008 ent R2 SP1 running on a test Hyper-V server currently with the end result hoping that i'll have 2 nodes in a cluster and 1 Session broker directing traffic. I haven't set up a Server Cluster before so i'm trying to follow some guides but am still coming up short.
Server 1
                 = TSCLUSTER
Server 2
Server 3 = Session Broker

So far I have Server 1 and Server 2
"Members of farm in RD Connection broker" set to Yes
and under properties  I have it set to member of a farm, Farm Name as TSCLUSTER set the RD Connection Broker to Server 3, 50 on the relitive weight and to use IP address redirection.

On the Session Broker I have both Server 1 and Server 2 in the Session Broker Computers and TS Web Access Computers.

I'm not sure where I need to go from here to get me where I need to be.
Do i need to make some DNS entries to point to the farm? Round robin? Do I point it to the broker?
Where are the RemoteApps created.. the nodes or the broker?

you have to create A records in DNS for each TS in the session broker farm with the farm name


tsfarm (server1)
tsfarm (server2)

it will use round robin

for remote apps you have to setup the Terminal server Server Name to tsfarm

but be aware to function correct you need a PKI with valid certificates
