Now that your environment is ready, use the following steps to add the Remote Desktop Session Host server to the collection farm.

Note

Step 1, creating a public IP address for the RDMS virtual machine, is only necessary if it does not already have one assigned.

  1. Create a public IP address for the virtual machine running Remote Desktop Management Services (RDMS). The RDMS virtual machine will typically be the virtual machine running the first instance of the RD Connection Broker role.
    1. In the Azure portal, click Browse > Resource groups, click the resource group for the deployment and then click the RDMS virtual machine (for example, Contoso-Cb1).
    2. Click Settings > Network interfaces, and then click the corresponding network interface.
    3. Click Settings > IP address.
    4. For Public IP address, select Enabled, and then click IP address.
    5. If you have an existing public IP address you want to use, select it from the list. Otherwise, click Create new, enter a name, and then click OK and then Save.
  2. Connect to the RDMS virtual machine:
    1. In the Azure portal click Browse > Resource groups and click the resource group for the deployment.
    2. Select the new RDMS virtual machine (for example, Contoso-Cb1).
    3. Click Connect > Open to open the Remote Desktop client.
    4. In the client, click Connect, and then click Use another user account. Enter the user name and password for a domain administrator account.
    5. Click Yes when warned about the certificate.
  3. Add the new RDSH server to Server Manager:
    1. Launch Server Manager, click Manage > Add Servers.
    2. In the Add Servers dialog, click Find Now.
    3. Select the newly created RD Session Host server (for example, Contoso-Sh2) and click OK.
  4. Add the RDSH server to the deployment
    1. Launch Server Manager .
    2. Click Remote Desktop Services > Overview > Deployment Servers > Tasks > Add RD Session Host Servers.
    3. Select the newly created server (for example, Contoso-Sh2), and then click Next.
    4. On the Confirmation page, select Restart remote computers as needed, and then click Add.
  5. Add RDSH server to the collection farm:
    1. Launch Server Manager.
    2. Click Remote Desktop Services and then click the collection to which you want to add the newly created RDSH server (for example, ContosoDesktop).
    3. Under Host Servers, click Tasks > Add RD Session Host Servers.
    4. Select the newly created server (for example, Contoso-Sh2), and then click Next.
    5. On the Confirmation page, click Add.
