Hi all,

I need to setup 2 RDS servers which i've done lots before but only single servers and so i want to install the broker service to load balance them and provide redundancy if one fails but do i put the broker service on one or both RDS servers ? i'm wondering because if i put it on one server and THAT server fails then will client automatically connect to the other one even though the broker service is unavailable ?

Thanks

The broker service would be on both servers. You won't technically need the broker service on either of them, since these servers will not be load balancing connections. However, 2012 requires you to install the broker service when doing a RDS deployment. You'd basically just put all the necessary roles for a session based RDS deployment on each server and access them independently. The one sticking point would be the Licensing server. It usually easier to have a single licensing server, since you only have to set the CALs up once, but you can have them on both servers as long as you're making sure that you have enough CALs to support all of your users.
