How to list all terminal server member of RDSH Farm under RD Service Manager console ?


I'm using Windows Server 2008 R2 As Remote Desktop Session Host (RDSH) Terminal Server let say Farm1 to pool the connection to 60 other Terminal Servers running the same OS.

The problem is that now for some reason I cannot see the list of the Farm1 nodes that I usually can see when I go to Remote Desktop Services Manager console ?

How to show which servers are the member of Farm 1 nad the other Farm 2 .... 3 4 and so on ?

I've logged in using DOMAIN\Administrator account as well as login using the vSPhere Console and through VNC but still I cannot see the member of the Farm1 anymore.

I also try to add the RD license server hostname / IP address but still unable to add it successfully,

I used to be able to see them all. So any help would be really appreciated.

You need the Remote Desktop Services Manager. It will show you all sessions, farm members, and sessions per farm member.

If you're not seeing your farm members there by expanding the group then you have some membership problems. You may want to revisit the steps to add and license the farm members and make sure nothing is out of place.

how to do that ?
why the membership issue ? because when I see the licensing from the RDSH console, it is all registered with no issue.
