Currently I have four physical terminal servers running Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1. I'm still using NLB and just RD Connection Broker, not the RD Connection Broker Load Balancing. I want to do away with NLB, because it doesn't work that great. Ideally, I just want to use the RD Connection Broker Load Balancing. I have a few questions about this scenario:
Can I team the two NICs on the server and create one teamed IP address? Will that work with RD Connection Broker, and IP Address Redirection? Is it beneficial to do so?
Do I need to put the physical NIC cables in a VLAN on our core switch? I know you have to with NLB running multicast, but not sure about this setup. Is the RD Connection Broker Load Balancing chatty over the network? If I have to put the NIC cables in a VLAN, then what do you setup, if the servers will need to talk to mostly everything else.
Let me know if you need more background information on our setup.
