To verify the functionality of the RD Session Host deployment, log on to CONTOSO-CLNT as Morgan Skinner and use Remote Desktop Connection (RDC) to connect to the RD Session Host server (RDSH-SRV).
Log on to CONTOSO-CLNT as Morgan Skinner.
Click Start, point to All Programs, point to Accessories, and then click Remote Desktop Connection.
When the Remote Desktop Connection dialog box appears, type rdsh-srv in the Computer box, and then click Connect.
In the Windows Security dialog box, type the password for contoso\mskinner, and then click OK.
If the connection is successful, a Windows desktop will appear on the screen for RDSH-SRV.
You have successfully deployed and demonstrated the functionality of RD Session Host on Remote Desktop Services by using the simple scenario of connecting to an RD Session Host server with a standard user account by using Remote Desktop Connection. You can also use this deployment to explore some of the additional capabilities of Remote Desktop Services through additional configuration and testing.
