Adding Remote Desktop / Terminal Server
Posted on 2011-09-12
I am in need of some initial guidance on the best practice for adding Remote Desktop services to a existing Primary Domain Controller. There are two total servers, a PDC and TS, both Windows Server 2008 R2 64 bit.
The thought is to add the role to the PDC as it is a r710 and duplicate the existing Remote Desktop Services on the r210 Terminal Server.
a few questions:
Is there a tool for duplicating all settings and group policy from server 1 to server 2?
If not, how exactly do we know what was originally configured setup or changed?
How do we configure both the server to share the authentication load?
And can we custom limit the r210 to say 100 TS users and the r710 to 300 users?
I have looked around and short of spending 50k on production test software no one really seems to have a baseline of - Processor x memory x 64bit x basic applications such as MS Office = number of TS users.
