I have a client with a terminal server farm with 7 terminals servers. server OS is 2012.  They have a broker server.  I cannot for the life of me fine the Session Computer group that was supposed to be created on the local broker server.  I need to remove a couple of servers from their farm but not sure which local group to remove them from.  The Broker service is installed on the server that is designated as the broker.  Any help would be greatly appreciated!

If this 2012 RDS, you can simply remove RD Session host server from RD SessionCollection 1st and after that you can remove RD Session host role from that server
This can be done via GUI and PowerShell as well.
No need to add \ remove from local group on any server (RDCB specifically) like 2008 R2 RDCB, this should taken care automatically

It is 2012 RDS.  Basically I want to do temporarily and put the servers back into the farm at a later time.  Is there an easy way to do this?

I think whatever I mentioned in 1st comment is the simple way only

U can add RDS role on server any time and also can add back into collection.

I hope this server holds only RD Session Host role

I need the servers to act as Terminal Servers outside of the farm, so basically standalone servers.  Which server do I remove the session host role?

There has to be an easier way to remove from a farm.  Can't I just take the DNS entry out for the servers?
