Azure RDS User setup and login

Hi

In Azure I have added RDS (Remote Desktop Services). I have added users to the new advm (active directory virtual machine). What do I need to do to log into
my main server or vm? This whole process seems overcomplicated.

Use Remote Desktop Connection

Remote Desktop Connection (RDC, also called Remote Desktop, formerly Microsoft Terminal Services Client, mstsc or tsclient) is the client application for RDS. It allows a user to remotely log into a networked computer running the terminal services server.

Hi. The RDS setup seems to be a lot more complex than that. This is the sort of thing that I am talking about https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i_unjP0DT38

I have created users on the advm now I need to log into my main vm with these users. There is a bit of configuration that I am still not sure about

Hi. I realized that I didn't need RDS. I simply wanted 5 people to access the server at once. Would CAL licenses suffice?

No.

Windows Server has, built in, the capability to support two users logging in to a server operating system at a time. These are considered "administrative logins" and are intended to be used for administering the server.

If you want more than two users logging in, then you need Remote Desktop or a similar solution from a third-party vendor. To the best of my knowledge, only two solutions are supported in Azure, Remote Desktop and Citrix. In order to support Remote Desktop, you MINIMALLY need Remote Desktop Session Host and Remote Desktop Licensing.

If you want more than 2 concurrent connections your computer is now considered a "Terminal Server" and you must pay for "Remote Desktop Services client access licenses" (RDS CALs) .
