Hi all,

I've created a Microsoft RDS collection using 2 RDS servers that should be load balanced but how do i connect to these via RDP ? I would;ve thought i would connect to the collection name or similar and it would then load balance the users to A server but what address (name) do i use to connect as i've tried the collection name but it doesn't seem to resolve ?
sorry if this is basic.
Thanks

Use rdweb. The rdp client does not have a GUI for specifying some properties that rdp 8 and higher how supports. Microsoft really expects rdweb and/or "modern apps" to be the way you connect to RDS. RDC is legacy and is has not gotten any GUI updates the last several years.

Thanks but the problem is that we are going to use thin clients that use the RDP protocol so to carry on using this is there a DNS round robin kind of setup we can use ?

Nope. You'll want to use a thin client that officially supports RDS. There are thin clients running linux and windows embedded capable of reading the published xml feed that rdweb generates. Trying to force a non-supported process (round robin in 2012, for example) will cause licensing and certificate issues so the user experience would suck.
