Farm Setup

Promoting a Server to Farm Controller role

Open an Administrator session on the server which will become the Farm Controller (usually this is the „Gateway“ server).

Open Terminal Service Plus AdminTool, click on „Server“ and then click on „Farm Manager“ as shown below:

Farm Setup 1

The following dialog box will be displayed:

Farm Setup 2

Click on „Yes“ to promote the current Server: it will become the Controller of your Farm.

Next, the Farm Manager main window will be displayed: this is the Farm Manager, the centralized farm administration user interface.

Adding an Application Server to the Farm

Once there is a Farm Controller, you can add Application Servers to the Farm.

To do so, open an Administrator session on the Application Server you want to add to the Farm.

Open Terminal Service Plus AdminTool, click on „Server“ and then click on „Join Farm Controller“ as shown below:

Farm Setup 3

The following window will be displayed:

Farm Setup 4

This is the server’s „Key“. This Key is the „password“ of your server for every Terminal Service Plus farm related features. Treat this Key as a password: do not communicate it to anyone, do not display it publicly.

Now open an Administrator session on the Farm Controller and open the Farm Manager on it:

Farm Setup 5

On the default „Servers“ tab, click on the „Add“ button. The following window will be displayed:

Enter the Application Server details, as well as the Key you retrieved just before, then click on the „Save“ button to add the Application Server to the Farm.
