I have a 2016 RDS system comprised of 4 servers. "Server1" = Licensing/Connection Broker/WebAccess; "Server2" = Profile disk host for .VHDX files. "Server3" = Session Host; "Server4" = Session Host.  There is one Collection called "Test" which both Session Host servers (Server3 and Server4) are members. There is no Gateway server because this is an internal system only with no public access. NOTE: I have not created any certificates as I did not think them needed due to public access not being allowed.

Issue: Not always, but sometimes when a client tries to RDP into one of the Session Hosts, the attached error occurs. I have read lots of conflicting information regarding the "Farm" that is referenced in the error. I have read that there is no need to add DNS entries for Round Robin functionality between these Sessions Hosts with 2016 RDS systems, and I cannot find any Farm name to direct my clients to.

My next step was going to be to add RD Gateway functionality to Server1 to see if I could create a Farm and then actually get a Farm name and, subsequently, add the DNS entries. I'm going to wait on responses before doing so.

If anyone can help here, I would really appreciate it.
