    Hi ,

    You need to configure RDP NLB ,

    Requirements for using NLB with a terminal server

    To use NLB, a computer must have:
    • At least one network adapter for load balancing.
    • Only TCP/IP used on the adapter for which NLB is enabled. Do not add any other protocols (for example, IPX) to this adapter.
    • All hosts in the NLB cluster must reside on the same subnet.
    • Ensure that the cluster's clients are able to access this subnet.
    • All terminal servers in the terminal server farm should be joined to the same domain.

    Steps for configuring NLB with Terminal Services

    To configure NLB with Terminal Services, complete the following steps:
    Step 1: Set up a terminal server farm with TS Session Broker.
    Step 2: Install NLB.
    Step 3: Create an NLB cluster.
    Step 1: Set up a terminal server farm with TS Session Broker

    For a terminal server to use TS Session Broker, you must add the computer account for the terminal server to the Session Directory Computers local group on the TS Session Broker server.
    You must perform this procedure on the server where you installed the TS Session Broker role service.

    To add a terminal server to the Session Directory Computers local group
    • On the TS Session Broker server, click Start, point to Administrative Tools, and then click Computer Management.
    • In the left pane, expand Local Users and Groups, and then click Groups.
    • In the right pane, right-click the Session Directory Computers group, and then click Properties.
    • Click Add.
    • In the Select Users, Computers, or Groups dialog box, click Object Types.
    • Select the Computers check box, and then click OK.
    • Locate and then add the computer account for the terminal server that you want to add.
    • Click OK when finished.

    You can configure a terminal server to join a farm in TS Session Broker by using the Terminal Services Configuration snap-in.
    The following steps are only applicable if the Terminal Server role service is installed.

      Always quote your sources. The page may be updated to reflect new best practices etc., and that can make or break a config.
