Adding second Remoteapp Server

All, I currently have a Remote Desktop (Terminal Server) that will be used for providing RemoteApps to clients in our domain using Windows Server 2012 Standard R2 . The following roles were installed on the one server: Connection Broker, Session Host, Gateway, Licensing, Web Access. My question is if I wanted to add a second server for load balancing/redundancy how would I go about adding the second server to the pool?

1. Would I install the same roles on the second server?
2. Would I need create new certificates for the servers?

Thanks!

definitely you can 2nd server in server pool in server manager and can install RD session host server role on that server from server manager and later add it to existing RDSH collection

you can export existing certificate on 1st RDSH server and import it on new server, this setup will work

Ideally you should keep separate RD connection broker and RDSH servers

So my advice is you could setup two member servers as RD session host servers, add them to existing deployment followed by session host collection and then remove session host role from existing connection broker, that will help

u need only one RD connection broker and RD web access per RDS deployment unless you wanted to setup HA for these components

One thing forgot to mention, you need to add new RDSH server 1st to server pool on RD connection broker server and from there open RDS deployment console and right click RDSH servers and click add new RDSH server
