Windows 2012 Sessionbroker

Hi Experts,

I've installed 4 new virtual Computers:
VM1 SBS2010
VM2 FileServer and RDS-Sessionbroker Windows 2012
VM3 RemoteDesktopserver01 Windows 2012
VM4 RemoteDesktopServer02 Windows 2012

Regarding the "Sessionbroker-Installation" on VM2 I'm not sure if I have done me Job well.
I have installed via Servergroups; and I have selected the 2 RDS and the Sessionbroker (it's now called RD Session Collections?). DNS RR with the RDSFarm name edited and everything works fine.

If I Open Servermanager on Sessionbroker (VM2) | RemoteDesktop - Session Collections - RDSFarm-Name I can recognize the Farm-Name and the 2 RDS Server (VM3+4)

On a RDS directly in Servermanager | RemoteDesktop Session | Overview (I can't translate corectly because it's a german server installation ^^) I identify a Message: "In Serverpool are no Sessionbroker-Server available..."
Same Message on both RDS.

But Sessionbroker + DNS RR seem to work correctly if I initiate a Client RDS Session.

What is my mistake in configure Sessionbroker?

Did you added information of the RD server in session broker .
Or please follow the check list

It will help you .
Best way to troubleshoot is :-
1. Check individual configuration of session host. If it works .
2. Check whether Farm configuration is done properly. I think the problem is with the information about session host servers of farm in the connection broker.
3. Then Check with Round robin DNS entry information created in the name of Farm . It should point to as much servers as much session host servers you have in the Farm.

If this does not solve your issue . DO describe what you want to achieve . So that I can assist you properly.

Your hints/Links refer to Windows 2008 R2. In Windows 2012 configuration of Sessionbroker is different to 2008 R2.
