The (non-technical) functionality is the same as NLB, new sessions are sent to the server with the least load based on number of connection the RD Connection Broker has notion of. There is one difference here though; the RD Connection Broker Load balancing feature does not have a farm DNS. Remote Desktop Connection Manager has RD Connection Broker configured for remoteapp programs, it shows 1 rd web access server, and the remoteapp sources shows two servers. Both backend servers are configured with a server name of rdsfarm.domain.com and sign the apps with the rdsfarm.domain.com cert Ich hatte es so verstanden, dass man bei den 2012R2 Server die Verbindung zur RDP Farm nur noch über den Connection Broker aufbaut und keine eigene IP Adresse mehr für die Farm erstellen muss (so wie in 2008R2). Verbinde ich mich mit den Usern nicht über den DNS Namen des Connection Broker, sondern über die IP funktioniert alles einwandfrei
