Editor's note

With Windows Server 2008 R2, RDS replaced Terminal Services as Microsoft's thin-client technology, enabling users to access desktops virtually.

Remote Desktop Services (RDS) is built into Windows operating systems and allows data to exist in a central location, simplifying management for systems administrators. It consists of six main components, including the Remote Desktop Connection Broker, Remote Desktop Gateway and Remote Desktop Session Host (RDSH). RDSH allows a server to host session-based desktops or RemoteApp programs.

We have all of your RDSH and RDS management questions answered with this comprehensive guide covering features and upgrades, RemoteFX, issues, including printer redirection problems and auto reboot concerns, and more.
