Complete the tasks in this checklist in order. When a reference link takes you to a procedure, return to this topic after you complete the steps in that procedure so that you can proceed with the remaining tasks in this checklist.

Please note the following:

  • Installing the RD Session Host role service requires the computer to be restarted.

  • Installing the RD Session Host role service on an Active Directory domain controller is not recommended.

  • You should install the RD Session Host role service on the computer before you install any programs that you want to make available to users.

  • To implement Microsoft® RemoteFX™ perform the task to configure RemoteFX on an RD Session Host server. (Optional)

  • In RemoteFX scenarios, the RD Session Host server running in redirection mode forwards the request to the RD Connection Broker server.
