Test Lab Guide: Remote Desktop Services Publishing

Pubblicato: febbraio 2012

Aggiornamento: febbraio 2012

Si applica a: Windows Server 2012

In Windows Server 2008 R2, publishing and managing applications on both pooled and personal virtual desktops is a very time-consuming and costly process. Because RemoteApp programs only partially integrate with the native Windows experience, they add to the management cost since there’s no way to organize published RemoteApp programs to users.

Remote Desktop Services in Windows Server® 2012 enables you to publish and manage resources, such as RemoteApp programs, session-based desktops, and virtual desktops, from a centralized console. Using this new publishing feature, you get an historic view of resources assigned to end users, you can change published resources for any given collection, and you can edit properties of published resources.

Centralized resource publishing provides end users with an experience that can replace locally installed applications.

This paper contains instructions for setting up a test lab based on the Test Lab Guide: Demonstrate Remote Desktop Services Session Virtualization Standard Deployment and publishing and managing resources using four server computers and one client computer. The resulting centralized resource publishing test lab demonstrates how to successfully install and configure resource publishing.

ImportantImportante
The following instructions are for configuring the Remote Desktop Services Publishing test lab using the minimum number of computers. Individual computers are needed to separate the services provided on the network and to clearly show the desired functionality. This configuration is neither designed to reflect best practices nor does it reflect a desired or recommended configuration for a production network. The configuration, including IP addresses and all other configuration parameters, is designed only to work on a separate test lab network.

In this test lab, Remote Desktop Services Publishing is deployed with:

  • One computer running Windows Server 2012 named DC1 that is configured as an intranet domain controller, Domain Name System (DNS) server, Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP) server, and an enterprise root certification authority (CA).

  • One intranet member server running Windows Server 2012 named RDSH1 that is configured as the Remote Desktop Session Host (RD Session Host) server.

  • One intranet member server running Windows Server 2012 named RDWA1 that is configured as the Remote Desktop Web Access (RD Web Access) server.

  • One intranet member server running Windows Server 2012 named RDCB1 that is configured as the Remote Desktop Connection Broker (RD Connection Broker) server.

  • One roaming member client computer running Windows 8 named CLIENT1 that is used to connect to the Session Virtualization deployment.

The Remote Desktop Services Publishing test lab consists of 1 subnet (10.0.0.0/24) that simulates an intranet named Corpnet.

Computers are connected to each other by using a Hyper-V virtual switch. See the following figure.

The following are required components of the test lab:

  • The product disc or files for Windows Server 2012.

  • The product disc or files for Windows 8.

  • A physical computer that meet the minimum hardware requirements for Windows Server 2012.

There are 6 steps to follow when setting up the Remote Desktop Services Publishing test lab based on the Test Lab Guide: Demonstrate Remote Desktop Services Session Virtualization Standard Deployment.

  • Step 1: Complete the Demonstrate Remote Desktop Services Session Virtualization Standard Deployment Test Lab -- The Publishing test lab requires the Demonstrate Remote Desktop Services Session Virtualization Standard Deployment test lab as its starting point.

  • Step 2: Publish a RemoteApp Program – RemoteApp programs are published to either a session collection using Server Manager.

  • Step 3: Enable File Type Association on a RemoteApp Program – Enable file type association to assign the file association on the client device to the associated RemoteApp program.

  • Step 4: Configure DNS Feed Lookup for RemoteApp and Desktop Connections – Configure the Remote Desktop Services DNS feed lookup to automatically discover the RemoteApp and Desktop connection URL when users type in their email addresses.

  • Step 5: Test Published RemoteApp Program using RD Web Access -- CLIENT1 is a Windows 8 computer that is used to test that you can successfully connect to the published RemoteApp program.

  • Step 6: Snapshot the configuration -- At the completion of the lab, snapshot the configuration so that you can later return to a working Distribuzione di virtualizzazione delle sessioni Test Lab.

noteNota
You must be logged on as a member of the Domain Admins group or a member of the Administrators group on each computer to complete the tasks described in this guide. If you cannot complete a task while you are logged on with an account that is a member of the Administrators group, try performing the task while you are logged on with an account that is a member of the Domain Admins group.

This Test Lab Guide uses the Demonstrate Remote Desktop Services Session Virtualization Standard Deployment test lab as a starting place. Please complete the steps in Test Lab Guide: Demonstrate Remote Desktop Services Session Virtualization Standard Deployment before proceeding with the remainder of the steps in this guide. If you have already completed the steps in the Demonstrate Remote Desktop Services Session Virtualization Standard Deployment Test Lab Guide and saved a disk image or a virtual machine snapshot of the Demonstrate Remote Desktop Services Session Virtualization Standard Deployment, then you can restore the Configuration and proceed to the next step.
