rdweb, terminalserver, domain for multiple customers

Hi, i will setup a terminalserver/rdweb enviroment for multiple customers. Is this a ok way to do it?


rd web access and rd gateway server


Domain: domain.local
name: RDDC1.domain.local
Role: Active directory, DNS

name: RDCB1.domain.local
Role: RD Connection Broker

name: RDLS1.domain.local
Role: RD Licensing server

Child domain: cust1
name: RDDC2.cust1.domain.local
Role: Active directory, DNS

name: RDSH2.cust1.domain.local
Role: RD Session Host Server

Child domain: cust2
name: RDDC3.cust2.domain.local
Role: Active Directory, DNS

name: RDSH3.cust2.domain.local
Role: RD Session Host Server

This way each customer could have there own domain controller/server and there own terminalserver/rdweb server. And all users could use the same address to get to there terminalserver, https://rdweb.domain.local/rdweb
I need each customer to have there own domain controller/server since thay have some program that need that, they also need there own terminalserver.

Should i use child domain or tree domain? Is it possible to do it with tree domain and get one rd web access, rd gateway and connection broker server to function for all users/customers?

First thing you need to analyze the capacity, Like How many external customers will be connecting to servers, All customers will connect at a time or What will be load on server.

Based on the capacity review, You can plan for architecture.

Seems to above architecture is fine,

But I am suspecting no need to configure all these servers, You can add these roles on same server, Instead of configuring another DNS, AD server.

The customers need there own AD server, the program cant be installed for more customers on same server, so thats why. I dont know if i need to have DNS on each child domian, but it was setup by the AD setup so i didnt choose it. This servers will be VMs. I know that Active Directory (server1) and Connection Broker and Licensing server could be on same server.
