I have W2K8R2 RDS Gateway accessible from Internet via primary IP address and FQDN
https://rds.mydomain.com. Firewall has failover Internet connection with different ISP, diff IP
address and FQDN https://rds1.mydomain.comthat kicks in when primary connection goes down. Both IP addresses point to the same internal RDS server IP address
Is it possible to set RDS to accept backup connection when primary link goes down (Use these gateway server settings: server name rds.mydomain.com
& rds1.mydomain.com) or I have to deploy additional RDS server for rds1.mydomain.com?
There is no built-in method to set RDS to use a backup RD Gateway server if the primary link goes down. You could manually make the configuration change when the link fails, or perhaps you could write a program/script that will periodically check the
connection and if it is down make the change.
An alternative would be to change the DNS record for rds.mydomain.com to point to the failover connect if the primary is down. As above you could do this manually or write some sort of program/script that will automatically change the DNS record if
the primary is unresponsive.
