Deploying Remote Desktop Web Access with Remote Desktop Connection Broker Stepby-Step Guide
About this guide
RemoteApp and Desktop Connection allows administrators to provide a set of resources, such as RemoteApp programs and virtual desktops, to their users. Users can connect to RemoteApp and Desktop Connection in two ways: From a computer running Windows 7. When set up, resources that are part of RemoteApp and Desktop Connection appear in the Start menu under All Programs in a folder called RemoteApp and Desktop Connections. From a Web browser by signing in to the website that is provided by RD Web Access. In this case, a computer that is running Windows 7 is not required. This step-by-step guide walks you through the process of setting up a working RemoteApp source that is accessible by using Remote Desktop Web Access (RD Web Access). During this process, you will deploy the following components in a test environment: A Remote Desktop Connection Broker (RD Connection Broker) server A Remote Desktop Web Access (RD Web Access) server

This guide also explains how to configure Single Sign On so that users are only prompted once for credentials. When you deploy Single Sign On, consider the following certificate requirements: The certificate must be trusted explicitly or from a trusted root certificate. The certificate name or the Subject Alternative Name must match the fully-qualified domain name of the server. The certificate must support Server Authentication or Remote Desktop Authentication Extended Key Usage. Indirect certificate revocation lists are not supported. Certificate revocation checks are performed by default.

When you use CredSSP, you can turn off certificate revocation checks by configuring the following registry entry to a value of 1: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Lsa\Credssp\UseCachedCRL OnlyAndIgnoreRevocationUnknownErrors When you use Transport Layer Security (TLS), you can turn off certificate revocation checks by configuring the following registry entries to a value of 0: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Terminal Server Client\ CertChainRevocationCheck and HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Terminal Server Client\ CertChainRevocationCheck Is guide includes the following topics:

Step 1: Setting Up the CONTOSO Domain Step 2: Installing and Configuring RemoteApp Step 3: Verifying RemoteApp Functionality

This guide assumes that you previously completed the steps in the Installing Remote Desktop Session Host Step-by-Step Guide (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=147292), and that you have already deployed the following components: An RD Session Host server A Remote Desktop Connection client computer An Active Directory domain controller

The goal of a RemoteApp source is to provide users with programs that are available by using RD Web Access.

Scenario: Deploying Remote Desktop Web Access with Remote Desktop Connection Broker in a test environment
We recommend that you first use the procedures provided in this guide in a test lab environment. Step-by-step guides are not necessarily meant to be used to deploy Windows Server features without supporting deployment documentation, and they should be used with discretion as standalone documents. Upon completion of this step-by-step guide, your RemoteApp and Desktop Connection will be available for a user account that connects by using RD Web Access. You can then test and verify this functionality by opening a RemoteApp program as a standard user. The test environment that is described in this guide includes five computers that are connected to a private network by using the following operating systems, applications, and services.
Computer name Operating system Applications and services

CONTOSO-DC RDSH-SRV CONTOSO-CLNT RDCB-SRV RDWA-SRV

Windows Server 2008 R2 Windows Server 2008 R2 Windows 7 Windows Server 2008 R2 Windows Server 2008 R2

Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS), DNS RD Session Host Remote Desktop Connection RD Connection Broker RD Web Access

The computers form a private network, and they are connected through a common hub or Layer 2 switch. This step-by-step guide uses private addresses throughout the test lab configuration. The private network ID 10.0.0.0/24 is used for the network. The domain controller is named CONTOSO-DC for the domain named contoso.com. The following figure shows the configuration of the test environment.

Step 1: Setting Up the CONTOSO Domain


To prepare your RemoteApp and Desktop Connection test environment in the CONTOSO domain, you must complete the following tasks: Configure the RD Session Host server (RDSH-SRV). Configure the client computer (CONTOSO-CLNT)

Configure the Remote Desktop Connection Broker (RD Connection Broker) server (RDCB-SRV). Configure the Remote Desktop Web Access (RD Web Access) server (RDWA-SRV). Use the following table as a reference when setting up the appropriate computer names, operating systems, and network settings that are required to complete the steps in this guide.

Important Before you configure your computers with static Internet Protocol (IP) addresses, we recommend that you first complete Windows product activation while each of your computers still has Internet connectivity. You should also install any available critical security updates from Windows Update (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=47370).
