Mixing 2012 R2 and 2008 R2 - Remote Desktop Services Architecture
Posted on 2015-01-28
My question is very simple-
Is it supported to run Microsoft Server 2012 R2 on RD Gateway and RD Web Access servers with 2008 R2 RD Session Host servers at the back end?
Ideally, I want to use 2008 R2 as the supported platform for my client's applications but implement a 2012 R2 front end which supports google chrome and firefox browsers for RD Web access.
Is this possible and supported by Microsoft?
Here is my planned layout:
+ RD GW / RD Web - 2 2012 R2 servers (NLB)
+ RD Session Host - 2 2008 R2 servers (NLB)
+ RD Connection Broker - 1 2008 R2 server (for load balancing and reconnect)
Is this something that can be done?
