Server 2008 R2 RDS Farm Load Balancing issue.


We have 7 Server with 2008 R2 installed and configured the RDS on it. Here the exact details

1 RDS Gateway Server.
1 RDS Broker Server
5 RDS Host Server for Terminal Session (MSTSC only).

We have almost 125 Users The issue is when the users connect to the farm via the FARM.RDP from there PCs, RDS is not doing load balancing properly.

As per Current scenario, Out of 5 Host server, 4 have around 10 session on each. However, the 5th server has just 1 session and all new sessions are being redirected to other 4 servers.  There are no changes made. it was working fine. However, suddently stopped working after we rebooted the farm last night.

There are no Error events i can see for this on HOST server, Broker and Gateway.

What could be the issue? and/or where i should look for a probable cause for the same.

Compare the settings with other servers, make sure everything is same as other servers.

it is.

Infact, the problem is solved now.

I changed the Logon Mode to "Allow reconnection, but restrict the new logons." and after around 5 minutes again changed the Logon Mode to "Allow All connections" and it started working.

Not sure what has locked that up, but it is working now.
