RD Session Host types
Beginning with Parallels RAS v16.5, you can create and add to a RAS Farm the following types of RD Session Hosts:
- Individual servers. These can be physical boxes or virtual machines treated as physical servers. For information on how to create these types of servers, see Adding an RD Session Host.
- Virtual machines (VMs) created from a template, which is a part of RAS Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI). The main advantage of using VMs is the ability to create as many of them as you require from a single template. For information on how to create these types of servers, see Add a template-based RD Session Host.
Considering that template is a part of RAS VDI, some aspects of creating, provisioning, and managing RD Session Hosts based on a template differ from the regular RD Session Hosts (individual servers). When reading these sections, please pay attention to whether or not a particular functionality applies to RD Session Hosts based on a template.
