Hello there experts,
We are trying to balance out some new terminal servers.
The traditional way microsoft has it running is round robin based dns, this will distribute sessions not % load.
We have tested this with 3 terminal servers and 10 test users.
We loaded up TS1 with 80% ram use, and the 10th user still gets placed there, even though TS2 and TS3 are much less loaded.
What we are looking for is a way to balance terminal servers by % load, not session.
If accounting users all ended up on the same TS that would be bad.
What are people using to balance out load? Hardware appliance? Virtual appliances?
The load base on this project is 110 users concurrently, with a maximum of 150 users.
Currently we run 6 terminal servers and people are assigned to them, while we have 2 servers that are vastly under-utilized with expected growth managing them in a manual way is not feasible.
