Configure a Remote Desktop Session Host Server to Host RemoteApp Programs

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

To configure a Remote Desktop Session Host (RD Session Host) server to host RemoteApp programs, you must do the following:

  • Install programs on the RD Session Host server.

  • Add programs to the RemoteApp Programs list.

  • Ensure that the RemoteApp programs are available through Remote Desktop Web Access (RD Web Access).

For more information about performing these steps, see the RemoteApp Manager Help in Windows Server 2008 R2.

Also, you must do the following on the RD Session Host server that is hosting the RemoteApp programs:

  • Add the users and groups that need to access the RemoteApp programs to the Remote Desktop Users group.

  • Add the computer account for the appropriate Remote Desktop Connection Broker (RD Connection Broker) server to the TS Web Access Computers group.

    noteNote
    The appropriate RD Connection Broker server is the RD Connection Broker server that is making the RemoteApp programs on the RD Session Host server available to users through RemoteApp and Desktop Connection.

Configure the Remote Desktop Users group

By default, remote connections are enabled after you install the RD Session Host role service. You can use the following procedure to add users and groups that need to access the RemoteApp programs on the RD Session Host server.

Membership in the local Administrators group, or equivalent, on the RD Session Host server that you plan to configure, is the minimum required to complete this procedure. Review details about using the appropriate accounts and group memberships at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=83477.

To configure the Remote Desktop Users group
  1. On the RD Session Host server that is hosting the RemoteApp programs, start the System tool. To start the System tool, click Start, click Run, type control system and then click OK.

  2. In the System window, in the left pane, click Remote settings.

  3. In the System Properties dialog box, on the Remote tab, click Select Users, and then click Add.

  4. In the Select Users or Groups dialog box, add the appropriate users and groups. The users and groups that you add are added to the Remote Desktop Users group on the RD Session Host server.

    noteNote
    Members of the local Administrators group can connect even if they are not listed.

  5. After you have added the appropriate users and groups, click OK to close the Select Users or Groups dialog box, click OK to close the Remote Desktop Users dialog box, and then click OK to close the System Properties dialog box.
