Server 2012 with Hyper-V test lab using a pooled collection and a Wyse terminal

I've configured a test lab using Server 2012 and installed the Hyper-V role, then setup a managed pool with several Win7 virtual desktops.

Accessing the pool via the RDweb site works fine.  Connecting WYSE terminal (Model RxOL) made me realize I need some type of connection service/broker to give the WYSE something to talk to.  WYSE can jump into an existing RD session fine or connect to a personal virtual desktop.

So what is my next step?  Does WYSE have session server software for this (I haven't found it yet)?   Windows remote desktop connection broker service is installed, but maybe I need to do some more configuring?  Or do I need to install a another feature?

Any guidance would be appreciated.

it sounds like you just need to setup the connection broker fully
It should just be a DNS alias that then redirects to the farm

this is a good screenshotted guide

Thanks for the info.  Looks like the interfaces may have changed in 2013, a little, but the setup should be the same.  I'll go thru them and give it a try.

Thanks again.

Links give examples for 2008 server environment, but the question deals with 2013 server environment.
