hyper-v vm resolution settings RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear all

    I have a sbs 2008 server setup with rww, there is another server running hyper-v which hosts VMs running windows xp. When the users launch rww they get the option to launch a remote desktop, one of the users has a problem laptop and she connects to her XP VM, however recently she when user VM lauches and she connects onto via rdp the whole desktop does not show, instead she has a scroll bar along the side and bottom, I have tried to play with the desktop resolution settings on the native desktop and on the VM from the hyper-v server with no success can anyone please help?

    I understand that hyper-v VMs only allow 16 colours...

    hyper-v server is W8K sp2

  • Hi,

    I would like to confirm that you only experience the issue when connect to SBS 2008 and there is no issue about hyper-v and vm.

    EBS 2008 does not support directly connecting to a Terminal Server through RWW. The Remote Web Workplace (RWW) component of Essential Business Server 2008 does not display Windows Terminal Servers.  These servers may be accessed via Terminal Services Gateway (TS Gateway) or directly through a published RDP port, but they do not appear in the list of computers to connect to in RWW.

    Workarounds:

    1.  Publish the Terminal Server's RDP port (3389 by default) through TMG.   See http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc995085.aspx for more details.
     
    2.  Distribute .RDP files configured to use TS Gateway to end users.
     
    3.  Add a link for the Terminal Server in RWW.  To do this, use the following steps:
     1.Log on to the Messaging Server directly using an account with administrative rights.
     2.Edit %ProgramFiles%\Windows Essential Business Server\Bin\webapp\Remote\App_Data\OrganizationLinks.XML in Notepad
     3.Add a Link tag in the Gadget Section using the format:
     
      <Link DisplayText="TS" Url=https://<REMOTEURL>/Remote/tsweb.aspx?targetMachine=<TSNAME>  _locID="useTS" />
     
    Where <REMOTEURL> is the FQDN of your RWW server and <TSNAME> is the host name of the internal Terminal Server you are trying to access.  For example:
     
      <Link DisplayText="TS" Url=https://remote.contoso.com/Remote/tsweb.aspx?targetMachine=MyTS  _locID="useTS" />
