Hi, I am using Login VSI for SBC environment. In this case, is it a must that I should have microsoft remote desktop services on the launcher and target? That is, the client on the launcher and the session host on the target? Can I just install the launcher software that comes with Login VSI without having to install the remote desktop client? I am struck at this point and do not know how to proceed. Please help.

It is not a must that you should have the RDS Role on the Launcher(s). I actually suggest to not even install it on the Launcher(s). It is only needed for your Target(s), the Session Host makes it possible to connect with multiply users to one and the same Server (SBC).

"A Remote Desktop Session Host (RD Session Host) server is the server that hosts Windows-based programs or the full Windows desktop for Remote Desktop Services clients."

The Launcher(s) portion can be installed on any Machine/VM, as long as the host is a Windows Based Platform. The Session Host is the Target and should be configured/prepared with the Target portion.

Yes, you can just install the Launcher software without the remote desktop client that comes within the Login VSI portion. However you can remotely install the Launcher software (RDP); always run the software 'as admin'.

Let me know if this works for you.

What our customers are saying

Randy Groves - Teradici

"As the developer of the PCoIP protocol, we do a lot of our own internal benchmarking to make sure that we’re continuing to improve our protocol. But we can’t actually publish our internal benchmarks because everybody might think that the tests are biased. So when we want to publish results, we use Login VSI. That way, if a customer wants to repeat our results they can.”
