Step 1: Setting up the Contoso Domain

Updated: June 25, 2009

Applies To: Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2

To prepare your Remote Desktop IP Virtualization test environment in the CONTOSO domain, you must complete the following tasks:

  • Configure the Remote Desktop Connection Broker (RD Connection Broker) server (RDCB-SRV).

  • Configure the Remote Desktop Web Access (RD Web Access) server (RDWA-SRV).

  • Configure the DHCP server (DHCP-SRV)

Use the following table as a reference when setting up the appropriate computer names, operating systems, and network settings that are required to complete the steps in this guide.

ImportantImportant
Before you configure your computers with static Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, we recommend that you first complete Windows product activation while each of your computers still has Internet connectivity. You should also install any available critical security updates from Windows Update (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=47370).
