RDS collection maintenance - draining RD gateway question


  • Have a 2012r2 RDS Collection, with 2 Session Host servers that also have RD Gateway role installed, and 1 without. We need to restart the host servers in the collection but also drain the RD Gateway before doing so and there is no afterhours to do this.  Removing RDWeb IP DNS record takes too long.

    If we configure the RD Gateway to disable new connections, users still get an error upon login because the broker still thinks its available.  The only way I can think to avoid that would be to remove the RD Gateway from the collection configuration but Im curious if there's a better way to drain an RD Gateway quickly (about as quick as removing a host server from the pool)

  • Hi,

    As you had mentioned that, remove RD Gateway configuration on your RDS Deployment Properties would be recommended.
