Urgent!! Hyper-V+2008RDS to share the desktop RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello Every Technician,

    Very glad to communicate with you here.

    I have a urgent question to ask.

     

    Background:

    1 Server with 2008RDS+ Hyper-V role,  there's 5 Winxp VMs in Hyper-V. All VMs has enabled RDP.

    I'd like to ask if this two roles can achieve the function like the XenDesktop?

    For example, we have 5 users need to run the application remotely, as you all know, Winxp only 1 session. So I create 5 VMs. (For the XenDesktop, it can be automatically create the VMs when user login the system)

    Is it possible to achieve my destination  by the RDS+Hyper? Please tell me which feature in RDS should be installed or configured ?

    If possible ,please provide the documations link to me 

    Thank you very much.

  • Hi,

     

    According to your description, I understand that you want to share your desktop and application to your end users.

     

    Depending on your needs, I suggest using Microsoft VDI infrastructure or RDS(Terminal)+RemoteApp to achieve your destination.

     

    For your VDI infrastructure, you can assign personal virtual desktop(Windows XP VMs) to end users. As you know, Windows XP only one session for remote desktop, so each user can access a single instance of Windows, rather than sharing .The goal of a personal virtual desktop is to provide a user with a virtual desktop that is assigned to only that user.

     

    You can also deploy Virtual Desktop Pools for end users. The goal of a virtual desktop pool is to provide users with a virtual desktop that is dynamically assigned from a pool of identically configured virtual machines. Users can connect to a virtual desktop pool and run programs and consume resources as if they were using a local client computer.

    For Remote Desktop Services(Terminal server)+RemoteApp infrastructure, we do not recommend RDS roles and Hyper-V role installed on the same physical machine. For security and stability considerations, we recommend that you install RDS in a virtual machine.

     

    If you have installed the RDS roles in Windows server 2008 R2, this allows users to access the same desktop and applications at the same instance of a windows server. The specific number of RDS session will depend on your RDS CALs license.

     

    A Remote Desktop Session Host (RD Session Host) server is the server that hosts Windows-based programs or the full Windows desktop for Remote Desktop Services clients. Users can connect to an RD Session Host server to run programs, to save files, and to use network resources on that server. Users can access an RD Session Host server by using Remote Desktop Connection or by using RemoteApp.
