Install the Remote Desktop Web Access Role Service

Applies To: Windows Server 2008 R2

Install the Remote Desktop Web Access (RD Web Access) role service on the server that you want users to connect to over the Web to access RemoteApp and Desktop Connection. When you install the RD Web Access role service, Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) is also installed.

The server where you install RD Web Access acts as the Web server. The server does not need to be a Remote Desktop Session Host (RD Session Host) server or a Remote Desktop Connection Broker (RD Connection Broker) server.

Use the following procedure to install the RD Web Access role service.

Membership in the local Administrators group, or equivalent, 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 install the RD Web Access role service
  1. On the computer on which you want to install the RD Web Access role service, open Server Manager. To open Server Manager, click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Server Manager.
