rds servers not accepting connections

Hi all,

I've set up 2 RDS 2012 R2 servers and created a collection and one of the servers as a broker. If i try to connect directly to RDS2 then i can log on fine however if i try to RDP to RDS1 (the broker) i get "this computer can't connect to the remote computer"
I have confirmed that remote desktop is enabled and the user is allowed ?
Also if i open the MSTS with /admin and try it i then get a "the requested session access is denied" error ?

This "seems" to have stopped working since i put the broker on

any help would be great.

Thanks

you will not be directed to RDS2 via RDS1

I believe you also have installed RD Web access role on RDS1 (broker)

Open web browser and logon to broker server via rd web access portal some thing like below

https://rdweb.domain.com/rdweb.aspx

Then you will be able to list there RDS2 as RDP connection where you can connect

Else whatever u are doing (connecting directly to RDS 2) is also fine, the request 1st will routed to broker and broker will again redirect to RDP server

Thanks Mahesh but i just want to be able to RDP directly to RDS1 to begin with so i'm not concerned about it re-redirecting me to RDS2 at present ?
If i log onto RDWEB then it does only give me RDS1 but i get the same error connecting each time

Ok
Got it
U r trying to access RD broker server also as a RD session host server
You have deployed standard RDS deployment with role separation, hence you are facing issues, RD connection broker in separation mode won't allow you to connect via RDP in application mode, you can connect to that sever only with administration RDP mode
You need to do this setup differently

Try below
destroy current deployment and then install all RDS role on single server (Quick start deployment)
Then check if you are able to connect to RDS deployment
Once that is successful, add another RD session host server in that deployment and see if you can connect to both servers
Check below link for quick start deployment
