Windows Server 2022 Remote Desktop Services | RDS-2022

Remote Desktop Services: is the capability of Windows server 2022 to provide connectivity to end users to be able to access Windows desktops and applications remotely including delivering individual virtualized applications, providing secure mobile and remote desktop access, and providing end users the ability to run their applications and desktops from the cloud. Windows Server 2022 RDS has numerous advantages compared to the previous version. Easier management of access licenses is of great importance. It is also characterized by forward compatibility. So you can continue to use this program even if a new version of the Windows server should appear. There are two type of Remote Desktop Services (RDS) CAL:

  • RDS User CAL - for every user who accesses the server to use services, regardless of the number of devices they use for that access. Like, Your employees access the corporate network using multiple devices or if there are simply more devices than users in the organization. In this case, you would need to purchase a user CAL for every user who accesses the server, regardless of the number of devices they use for that access.

  • RDS Device CAL - for every device that accesses your server, regardless of the number of users who use that device to access the server. Like, Your employees share devices, such as shift workers, or there are likely more employees than devices in the organization. In this case, you would need to purchase a device CAL for every device used to access the server.

Security has also been further improved on Windows Server 2022 Remote Desktop Server. For example, the virtual machines now have better isolation. In addition, Windows Defender has been optimized for these applications. Latest RDS is characterized by single sign-on. This ensures optimum safety and, at the same time, a high level of user convenience.. Any user or device that connects to a Remote Desktop Session host needs a client access license (CAL). Now we use RD Licensing to install, issue, and track RDS CAL on Windows Server. When a user or a device connects to an RD Session Host server, the RD Session Host server determines if an RDS CAL is needed. The RD Session Host server then requests an RDS CAL from the Remote Desktop license server. If an appropriate RDS CAL is available from a license server, the RDS CAL is issued to the client, and the client is able to connect to the RD Session Host server and from there to the desktop or apps they're trying to use.

There is a licensing grace period of 120 Days during which no license server is required. Once the grace period ends, clients must have a valid RDS CAL issued by a license server before they can log on to an RD Session Host server. Use the following information to deploy and manage your licenses in Remote Desktop Services 2022:

Install the Remote Desktop Licensing role

  • Sign into the server you want to use as the license server using an administrator account.

  • In Server Manager, click Roles Summary, and then click Add Roles. Click Next on the first page of the roles wizard.

  • Select Remote Desktop Services, and then click Next, and then Next on the Remote Desktop Services page.

  • Select Remote Desktop Licensing, and then click Next.

  • Configure the domain - select Configure a discovery scope for this license server, click This domain, and then click Next.

  • Click Install.

Activate the RDS license server

  • Open the Remote Desktop Licensing Manager: click Start > Administrative Tools > Remote Desktop Services > Remote Desktop Licensing Manager.

  • Right-click the license server, and then click Activate Server.

  • Click Next on the welcome page.

  • For the connection method, select Automatic connection (recommended), and then click Next.

  • Enter your company information (your name, the company name, your geographic region), and then click Next.

  • Optionally enter any other company information (for example, email and company addresses), and then click Next.

  • Make sure that Start Install Licenses Wizard now is not selected (we'll install the licenses in a later step), and then click Next.

Your license server is now ready to start issuing and managing rds licenses.

Install RDS CAL on the Remote Desktop License server

Use the following instructions to install Remote Desktop Services CAL 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.
      1. On the license server (usually the first RD Connection Broker), open the Remote Desktop Licensing Manager.
      2. Right-click the License server RDS-SRV-01 (Your server name), and then click Install Licenses.
      3. In the Install Licenses Wizard, on the Welcome to the Install Licenses Wizard page, click Next.
      4. On the License Program page, select License Pack (Retail Purchase if you purchased from us), and then click Next.
      5. 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. Now the license server can issue RDS CAL 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 Remote Desktop Services on the Cloud

The previous versions of Windows Server 2019 RDS 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 2022 RDS) offers RDS templates that can be deployed and installed directly to the Azure portal. Hence, Windows Server 2022 reaps from all of the benefits of Azure.

Additionally, RDS 2022 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, Remote Desktop Service (2022) has introduced the Azure Key Vault. You can manage certificates and use Azure 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.
