In this new tutorial, we'll explain the other possibility : provide virtual machine-based desktops (that is, VDI).
Which means that you will also need a Hyper-V virtualization server to run them.
To follow this tutorial, you will need :
Since creating virtual desktops requires the use of sysprep and they will need to be able to connect to your Active Directory domain, you will need to send the IP address of your Active Directory server as the primary DNS server thanks to DHCP server options.
Indeed, if you try to put it directly into the network configuration of the virtual machine being used as model, this configuration will be erased by sysprep.
In short, on Windows Server 2012 R2 :
To begin, on the Hyper-V server, open the "Add Roles and Features Wizard" and check the "Remote Desktop Services" box.
Then, in role services, check only the "Remote Desktop Virtualization Host" box.
For the RDS server, install at least the "Remote Desktop Web Access" and "Remote Desktop Licensing" role services.
At this step, don't change anything and just click Next.
After installing Remote Desktop Services, you may need to restart your RDS server.
Now that we have installed the required Remote Desktop Services, we need to deploy them.
For this, on your RDS server, click on "Add other servers to manage".
In the "Active Directory" tab, click : Find Now.
Then, select your Hyper-V server and click on the middle arrow.
Finally, click OK.
Now, click on "Add Roles and Features".
Select "Remote Desktop Services installation" and click Next.
Select : Standard deployment.
Select : Virtual machine-based desktop deployment.
The wizard displays a description of the different services.
Select on which server the Broker service will be installed.
Note : it cann't be installed on an Active Directory server, hence the use of another server (RDS).
Select on which server you want to install web access.
For the virtualization host, select your Hyper-V server and click the middle arrow.
Then, click Next.
Important : installing the "Remote Desktop Virtualization Host" role service will result in the installation of the "Hyper-V" role on the same server (if it isn't already installed).
You are therefore required to install this role on your Hyper-V server.
The remote office services have been deployed.
