Terminal Server Published Apps

Hi All,
We are wanting to know if it were possible to have a few terminal servers set up and another terminal server configured as a connection broker to make these all load balanced.
We would then have another terminal server with all the applications we require configured to publish these applications onto the terminal servers that employees would connect too (the load balanced ones).
Is this possible? I know it is daisy chaining the terminal servers but the idea is that not every terminal server will have the same applications installed on them as different employees require different applications.
The RemoteApps will appear on employees desktops that have been given permissions via a security group.
Can someone please confirm if this is possible as well as possibly some instructions on setting this up correctly?
Thanks in advance.
Joe

Hi Brad,

Thank you for the response as well as the link to the step by step guide.

Can you please also confirm that is it possible to have another server external to the load balanced ones publish apps via terminal services to the users logging onto the load balanced servers?

Thanks Brad.

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Not part of the load balancing servers but still on the LAN

As long as it's part of the domain then yes it can publish apps and you can just send them via Remote App, or through the Web App to the TS servers in/on the load balanced side.
