  • "isolate" access to RDSH hosts in RDS farm

    RDS 2012 R2 - 2 Brokers 2 RDSHs and SQL in deployment. Using RemoteApp.
    I have couple of non standard apps.
    I would like to add one more RDSH for the beginning and install on it just non standard apps. Then I want to publish them as RemoteApps.
    1. Let say User1 accessing apps available for him from RDSH1 and RDSH2 in current situation. I add RDSH3 with published Remote App and provide access to User1. If he will access apps published on RDSH1 and 2 I will see one connection in RDS manager to server 1 or 2 and if he will access app that is published from RDSH3 I will see one more connection of this user to server 3.
    I guess it will work without any trouble. Correct?
    2. Then I add 10 more users with the same access rights.
    Connections to RDSH1 and 2 will be split between both as it is now (by load balancing) because they have the same apps availabel. But the connections opened by the app published from RDSH3 will all made to this machine
    In other word can I have different apps on different RDSHs and would it affect brokers? Or everything should be smooth from connection distribution perspectives. Sure Servers load is taking into consideration.
    The reason that I want to go this way is to not pollute clean hosts that don't have any installed apps. I deliver Virtual Apps on them and then publish by RemoteApp. Only those Virtual Apps that could not be published as RemoteApp must be isolated in my approach.
    Am I on right way by thinking of Apps isolation by RDSHs?
