Moving Roles within an Existing RDS Deployment RRS feed

  • Question

  • That title doesn't exactly explain my situation, but now that I have your attention...

    Currently have RDGateway, ConnectionBroker, Session Host roles with a single published Collection on a physical server (TS1) and a second session host-only role (connections split 50/50) on another physical server (TS2).  The licensing role is on a separate physical server (LS1).  There are issues with the multi-role server (TS1) that require it to be redeployed from scratch so the plan is to add the RDGate and CB roles to the LS1 server and have the TS2 server be the sole Session Host while TS1 is rebuilt, after which TS1 will only be an additional Session Host.  There is no HA configured at all.

    Rather than have to reconfigure everything in one fell swoop I'm hoping that the RDGate and CB roles can be created on the LS1 server now, leaving the current deployment up and running.  Then tackle reconfiguring the TS2 session host to belong to the new deployment with a new collection and taking down the TS1 server to be rebuilt.

    Is that a viable plan, to have two RDGate/CB configured on the same domain?

    Is that a viable plan, to have two RDGate/CB configured on the same domain?
    yes.

    old environment:
    TS1:rdgw1,rdcb1,rdsh1 in collection 1
    TS2:rdsh2 in collection 1
    LS1:rdls
    new environment:
    TS1:null
    TS2:rdsh2 in collection 2
    LS1:rdls,rdgw2,rdcb2,rdsh3 collection 2
    steps like:
    1 create a new RDS deployment(rdgw2,rdcb2,rdsh3) on LS1
    2 create a new collection(collection2) in RDS management on rdcb2
    3 install the same app as rdsh1 on rdsh3 and check if all domain users can log on rdsh3 and use app successfully.
    4 log off all uses from rdsh2 from the old collection on TS1 ,then click" remove RD session host servers" like picture 1 to remove rdsh2 from collection 1
    5 add rdsh2 to the server pool on rdcb2 and add rdsh2 to collection 2.
    6 reconfig RAP and CAP on new rdgw2 and other configuration
    taking down the TS1 server to be rebuilt.

  • Yes you can build 2 diffrent RDS platefroms in the same domain; but be aware there is no possibility to mix them
