terminal server 2008 r2

I have 2 terminal servers

They are 192.168.60.8 and 192.168.60.7

For 1 night I would like everyone that uses 192.168.60.8 to be redirected to use 192.168.60.7 while some updates are being done on a software package. Is this possible without touching 50 PCs and thin clients to change the IP from .8 to .7 and then back again the next day?

I thought there is a way to broker the terminal servers to allow this.

They do not have or need roaming profiles because all the apps they need are on both servers.  They can use webmail for their email for 1 night.

Hi,

Put the one that needs work in drain mode 1 or 2 days in advance.

Run in command prompt

I assume you have dns entries for both servers, change the maintenance server to the other ip and your set

Thanks - right now I don't have them brokered on the network or anything like that.  so I don't know what that means yet.  Can you help me with the setup?

Hi Wes,

No broker needed. Do you have DNS records like TS1 = 192.168.60.7 and TS2= .8?

Well it'll also depend on how the terminal was setup on each PC, better question, did you use hostname on the PC or did you use IP address?

IP through a VPN tunnel.  I can change the IP of the ts that's getting maintenance and add its IP to the nic of the ts that's production

If you are going by IP, unless you can push out a fix for the file they use to connect, changing the IP's on the server would probably be your easiest bet, is this something that you will commonly do, or is it more of a one time thing?

Because if it is common, i would suggest what Patrick was saying above, and set it up by hostname, that way you could just change the DNS server to redirect the IP, that way you wouldn't have to change anything else..
