Server 2012 R2 Remote Access

I have a Server 2012 R2 Standard server as my DC, I've created a virtual Server 2012 R2 to install the 'Windows Server Essentials Experience' role to add the Remote Access. I have configured remote access without any problems regarding file sharing, however the 'Devices' available to connect to shows only the Virtual server that hosts the remote access. In the Dashboard on the server under devices, no devices are found as they are all hosted on the DC, not the virtual server. Is there a way to get the Computers in AD to show in Devices on the Virtual server so that we are able to connect to the machines externally using the portal?

First, I hope you aren't running Hyper-V *on* your DC. That'll cause all sorts of problems. Second, did you join the server running the essentials role to your existing domain? You should've. If not, you'll have to remove the role, do the join, and then reinstall. And finally, only devices that you install the essentials connector onto will appear in the essentials dashboard and be available via anywhere access. If you aren't willing to install the connector on those machines, anywhere access may not be the right solution.

Hello Cliff,

I've got 2 seperate servers running Hyper-V Core 2012 R2, one of which is hosting the Remote Access server. The DC is a dedicated box completely seperate. The remote access server is hosted virtually and is joined to the domain. All the PC's on the domain show up (on the DC) in AD. The problem I'm having is getting them to show in the 'Devices' dashboard on the Remote access server.

As already mentioned, the essentials connector must be installed on each machine that will be accessed remotely via the essentials Anywhere Access feature.

How do I install the essentials connector as the machines are already on the domain?

With the essentials experience role, this is fully supported. You should be able to simply follow the normal process. Either hit the connect website or copy the installer via USB.
