RDS Error on Deployment

Posted on 2016-07-27

Last Modified: 2016-08-01
I'm attempting to deploy RDS using the quickstart method. I understand that this method of install should not be for production. I'm installing this for a demo environment. This is a brand new domain.

I moved the RDS server out of the computer container to an organizational group so any group polices would apply.

The error I get shows up under view progress for the add roles and features wizard.

Failure: Unable to create the session collection.

I've attached a screenshot.

The event viewer is clean.Screenshot of Error

Usually that would only fail if the account being used doesn't have the appropriate permissions. Or if a security policy has been set (domain level polices impact all systems, even in OUs) that is changing default permissions.

Do you have any Terminal Server GPO settings applied to the server? If so, disable them and try again.

No group policies are set and the default group policy hasn't changed.

Also I am the domain administrator. This is the default administrator that gets created when you first create a domain.

Then my first uess is you have a group policy/security policy messing with things. The quick start deployment deploys the RDCB role, which in turn deploys a SQL Express database. A domain admin has privs to manage that database by default, and that's the only way that particular step would fail. Creating a collection is basically just a database entry that the RDCB creates (and later reads from.) so this is an issue with RDCB (or more likely SQL) related permissions issues.

I removed the 'RDS Role' and  'Windows Internal Database'. Then created another domain admin account with a different name than 'administrator'.

I suspect the issue was the 'domain administrator' account was authenticating as the 'local administrator' at some point during the deployment script.

I'm certain I was using the domain administrator account. It won't even begin to install if you accidentally try to deploy it as a local administrator...
