Prevent temp profile with simultaneous remoteapp and full desktop using load balancing RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We're currently facing an issue with RDS where if a user is connected to a full desktop session through the RD farm, and then tries to open a remoteapp on their local machine through the same farm, load balancing is taking this as two separate sessions, and therefore gives the user a temporary profile on one of them. This is obviously a somewhat rare case where someone would need both, but it is occurring, and a solution would definitely be preferable.

    Overall, I'm searching for a way to ensure a particular user always gets balanced to the server where their profile (VHDX) is mounted, even if this does not entirely balance the load.


    • Server 2012 R2
    • 2 servers in farm

    If you need any further details, let me know. I'm not the one that set the farm up, so I'm not entirely around all of its intricacies, or what other info you might need to identify our setup. Thanks.
