Windows 2016 RDS Collection, login to a particular server as a standard user

We have a Windows 2016 RDS Collection with one broker and 3 servers - 45 users
We need to logon once as each user to each server to set Java permissions for the ATO website  and set a default database connection for an HR application and set printer preference (ie Users name).
We have been unable to find a way to login to a particular server as a particular user. (Except mstsc /admin for Administrator login).
The company has long working hours and shutting down 2 of the servers to access a particular one is not convenient.

The Java settings are just for a single website

By default RD Connection broker does load balancing and its difficult to allow user to logon to each server one by one specially in RDS environment no mater what you try like disabling RDCB load balancing or reconnecting existing session

The easy way to avoid trials is to pull out one host at a time from RDS collection and add required user groups to local "remote desktop users" group on server
It will allow two connections at a time, this way complete it for all users (you have only 45 users)
again add it back to collection and remove another one and repeat same procedure again

OR

Let ask all users to continue RDS and as an when user logon to RDS, he should do the changes, whenever he got logged on to another session host, do same setting there as well
I believe this setting is one time and user should not irritate doing setting when they got all 3 servers over the period of time...

Well, as a matter of principle, I don't like Adkins having user passwords, which yiur method would almost certainly require. Adkins can reset passwords in an emergency but user passwords should be private for day-to-day.

So, with that in mind, I'd be findingna way to script thus on login. Then it doesn't matter which server a user logs into. The login script will run and make the changes whenever they hit a new server.

Both of the changes you listed should be relatively easy to script. Java permissions are all on config files (the nature ifnjava's intended portability) with a few JVM behaviors controlled via registry keys. Have certainly done this a couple times myself.
