Add an RD Virtualization Host Server for RemoteApp and Desktop Connection

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

Use the following procedure to add a Remote Desktop Virtualization Host (RD Virtualization Host) server by using the Remote Desktop Connection Manager tool. When you add an RD Virtualization Host server, the virtual machines that are hosted on the RD Virtualization Host server are available to be used for virtual desktop pools and personal virtual desktops in RemoteApp and Desktop Connection.

noteNote
All virtual machines hosted on the RD Virtualization Host server are shown in the Remote Desktop Connection Manager tool. To exclude a virtual machine from being shown, use the Remote Desktop Services Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI) provider to configure the metadata of the virtual machine. For more information, see http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=143455.

Membership in the local Administrators group, or equivalent, on the RD Connection Broker 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 add an RD Virtualization Host server
  1. On the RD Connection Broker server, open Remote Desktop Connection Manager. To open Remote Desktop Connection Manager, click Start, point to Administrative Tools, point to Remote Desktop Services, and then click Remote Desktop Connection Manager.

  2. In the left pane, click RD Virtualization Host Servers, and then on the Action menu, click Add RD Virtualization Host Server.

  3. In the Add RD Virtualization Host Server dialog box, in the RD Virtualization Host server name box, enter the name of the RD Virtualization Host server that is hosting virtual machines, and then click Add.

  4. The server name appears in the center pane, along with information about the number of virtual machines hosted on the RD Virtualization Host server.

    noteNote
    When you add an RD Virtualization Host server, the computer account for the RD Virtualization Host server is automatically added to the local Session Broker Computers group on the RD Connection Broker server.

  5. To add additional RD Virtualization Host servers, repeat the previous steps.

    To remove an RD Virtualization Host server, click the name of the server, and then on the Action menu, click Remove RD Virtualization Host Server. In the Remove RD Virtualization Host Server dialog box, click Yes.
