This is the fully supported version of the iApp template, now on downloads.f5.com. It contains the fix described in the release candidate below. For the associated deployment guide, see http://www.f5.com/pdf/deployment-guides/microsoft-rds-session-host-dg.pdf
You can use this F5-supported iApp template to help you configure the BIG-IP Local Traffic Manager (LTM) to direct traffic and maintain persistence to Microsoft Remote Desktop Services Session Host servers. You can also use the iApp template for configuring the BIG-IP Advanced Firewall Manager (AFM) to provide a sophisticated layer of security for your Remote Desktop Session Host deployment.
Remote Desktop Services enables users to remotely access full Windows desktops, or individual Windows-based applications, on Remote Desktop Session Host computers. In an environment that uses a BIG-IP LTM system, a farm of Remote Desktop Session Host servers has incoming connections distributed in a balanced manner across the members of the farm.
