Remote Desktop Services does not exist in the server pool

Hi All,

I've got a Remote Desktop Services Deployment, based on session hosting.

It all seems to be working, I can remote in from the gateway and everything. My RemoteApps work.

however, If I use Server Manager on the Connection Broker to review Remote Desktop Services, Overview, I get the following message:

A Remote Desktop Services deployment does not exist in the server pool.
To create a deployment, run the Add Roles and Features Wizard and select the Remote Desktop Services installation option.

Add all the servers in the deployment to server manager. Since server manager can be used to manage remote servers, it makes no assumptions and you must add any remote servers to the tool for it to query and manage them.
