In first post (Windows Server 2012 : Create RDS Collection [part 1]), we install RDS roles. We will now create a collection (basically a RDS Server group associated with user group) and publish an application.

Create collection

In Remote Desktop Services Console (Server Manager), create RDS Collection :

1

Just give a name to your collection :

Add servers where you want to publish your application :

3

Choose user group(s) that will have access to this collection :

4

You can now use user profile disks : profiles and application data are stored in vhd disks on a Network share. We won’t use it here :

5

You can now see, Collection creation process :

Our collection is created, we can now publish our first application. Go to your RDS Collection and select “Publish RemoteApp programs to this collection” :

Select detected applications or '”add another program” :

Application is now published for our “Default RDS Collection”.
