Clustering Remote desktop server RRS feed

  • Question

  • We currently have one machine running 2008 R2 Enterprise, i want to add a second machine for high availability and failover. I have OS installed on second machine, I have the step by step for RD connection broker with high availabilty. My question is when i bring the new machine into the cluster will the applications be copied or do i need to have them pre-installed on the second machine already? For example Office 2010, do i need to go ahead and install on second machine or will clustering do it?

    If it will not do it automatically is there a way to run a backup on existing server and restore on second and if so what would be the best way to do the actual backup and recovery?
