Do I need Remote Desktop Connection Broker
Posted on 2014-04-12
I am deploying Remote Desktop Session Hosts at my remote offices, one per location. Do I need to have the RD Connection Broker role installed? This isn't a farm in the classic sense. If I do need the connection broker role, would it just go on the session host? I am familiar with how it works for Windows 2008 R2, but things seemed to have changed with Windows 2012 R2. For example, the documentation that I have seen says to configure the license server at the Connection Broker. In the old days we didn't even need the connection broker!
I have a separate license server that I will use for all of my servers. I will also be setting up separate NLB clusters for the RDWA and RDGW roles.
