What's New in Windows Server 2019 Remote Desktop Services:
Windows Server 2019 Remote Desktop Services will give customers the opportunity to leverage fantastic enhancements that make it the optimal version of RDS, to date, with several areas of innovation to improve the administrative and client experiences.
Better forward compatibility (for future versions of Windows Server) of high availability RD Licensing Servers
Performance Counter (perfmon) APIs for building monitoring dashboards
New notifications for RemoteApp in the Action Center
Improvements in GPU virtualization technology
Ability to perform high-level redirection of built-in or attached video cameras, which in turn results in better video streams running at higher frame rates in both new and legacy remote applications and desktops
User Input Delay performance counter that can be set per Process or per Session. It is used for identifying root causes of bad end-user RDP experiences.
Simplify IT management
We have time and again heard from customers that license management should focus on simplification to scale deployments. Over the past few years, we have focused on improving management of Remote Desktop (RD) Licensing servers and entitlement through Active Directory (AD).
We have also invested in providing an enhanced user experience where end users will be able to leverage desktops and apps through RDS 2019 to maximize productivity.
In addition to the GPU virtualization technology, we added high-level redirection of built-in or attached video cameras to deliver optimized video stream at higher frame rates in new and legacy remote applications and desktops. Users can now have a better experience with video-intensive interactions.
One of primary goals as the Remote Desktop Services product team is to help improve your security posture for your desktop and app virtualization environments. We have improved security through several enhancements.
With Windows Admin Center integration, it is easy to consolidate all local and remote server management into a single pane.
We have brought several Windows Defender optimizations for multi-session to give you more confidence in bringing a secure, scalable and cost-effective desktop experience to end users.
Lastly, we have reduced CPU usage on the client and server and bandwidth with better image quality to bring a faster end-to-end web client experience.
We also added web client support for Single Sign-on (SSO) to deliver a streamlined authentication experience for users connecting via the web client.
A few additional features include easy-to-configure DTLS-based encryption, all of which, work toward providing a trusted end-to-end RDS deployment.
How to Install Remote Desktop Services (RDS) CAL on Windows Server 2019?
Use the following information to install Remote Desktop Services client access licenses (CALs) on Your license server. Once the CALs are installed, the license server will issue them to users as appropriate.
Note: You need Internet connectivity on the computer running Remote Desktop Licensing Manager but not on the computer running the license server.
- On the license server (usually the first RD Connection Broker), open the Remote Desktop Licensing Manager.
- Right-click the license server RDS-SRV-01 (Your server name), and then click Install Licenses.
- In the Install Licenses Wizard, on the Welcome to the Install Licenses Wizard page, click Next.
- On the License Program page, select License Pack (Retail Purchase), and then click Next.
- Enter the 5x5 Retail license key (The license key you will receive from us after your purchase), click Add, and then click Next.
Click Finish, to complete installation of the licenses. The license server can now issue RDS CALs to clients that connect to a Remote Desktop Services deployment
Verify connectivity on Remote Desktop Licensing Manager
To verify the functionality of the deployment, use Remote Desktop Connection (RDC) to connect to the remote host. The use of the license will be verified on the Remote Desktop license server.
- Verify client connectivity:
- To verify client connectivity in a session-based desktop deployment: Establish a client connection in a session-based desktop deployment using a valid license
- To verify client connectivity in a virtual machine-based desktop deployment: Establish a client connection in a virtual machine-based desktop deployment using a valid license.
Deploying Windows Server 2019 Remote Desktop Services on the Cloud
The previous versions of Windows Server 2019 required you to bring in your own infrastructure for deploying it to the cloud. This caused reduced flexibility and scalability of Windows Server. However, the newest version (Windows Server 2019 RDS) offers RDS templates that can be deployed and installed directly to the Azure portal. Hence, Windows Server 2019 reaps from all of the benefits of Azure.
Additionally, RDS 2019 also supports hybrid deployments. The infrastructure roles can be deployed on Azure whole the host Virtual Machines (VMs) can be on-premises.
In the security arena, RDS 2019 has introduced the Azure Key Vault. You can manage certificates and use Azure SQL DB for high availability RD licensing.
RDS subscriptions are also now available through Cloud Solution Provider (CSP). This availability addresses customer needs and also makes desktop and app virtualization support more cost-effective. Since RDS subscriptions can directly be done through CSP, customers and partners do not have to acquire different licenses by going through multiple programs. Customers can hence enjoy a faster-licensing cycle as the CSP integrates with other Microsoft licenses like SQL Server, Office, and Windows Server.
