2012 R2 RDS servers broker

I’m having an issue with our new RDS servers we are testing.  We have two RDS 2012 R2 servers that both use a broker and a round robin name for load balancing.  
 
When I change a server to not allow new connections (say for maintenance purposes), any user connected to that server who logs off and then reconnects to the round robin DNS name,  gets directed  back to that same server and of course gets the message that “Remote logins are currently disabled”.  Sometimes if I reboot the Wyse box (T10 firmware 8.0_512) it will connect correctly, but there are some cases where it does not.

Has anyone seen this or have any ideas?  
Thanks

If you don't have your brokers configured for high availability, but still configure round robin DNS, this happens. Only one broker is aware f the maintenance status. You need to configure your brokers to be highly available. Or use only one broker.

We do only have one broker

Then don't use round robin DNS. The broker handled load balancing in 2012. Round robin DNS actually breaks that.

Cliff so your saying just point the thin clients to the broker name and it will handle the load balancing?
Cliff GaliherCommented:
As long as the broker knows which collection you want, yes. Microsoft has *not* uodated the GUI for the "classic" RDC application to specify collectionnakes. But modern apps (android, iOS, win8) can query the RDWA web feeds, and clicking on a collection via RDWA itself, does include this info. So if your thin clients are very old, you'll need to plan for that. Using RDWA is usually the best option.  But going forward, it is best to consider RDC's GUI as legacy and shouldn't be opened by end users directly.
