Assigning a template to a group

When you create RD Session Host groups, you can assign a template to a group. This can be done when you create or modify a group, or it can be done from the Templates tab.

To assign a template to a pool or group:

  1. Go to Farm > Site > RD Session Hosts > Templates tab.
  2. On the Templates tab, select a template.
  3. Click Tasks > Assign to group.
  4. A dialog opens listing existing RD Session Host groups. Groups that already have a template assigned are not shown in this list by default. To display them, select the Show groups with assigned template option. The template that they are currently using is displayed in the Template column.
  5. Select one or more groups and click OK.

To remove a template from a host pool or group:

  1. Select a template and click Tasks > Remove from group.
  2. A dialog opens listing all groups to which this template is assigned.
  3. Select the groups to remove the template from and click OK.

Note that if a group has guest VMs created from the template that you are removing, they will be removed as well. A message is displayed where you need to confirm the removal.
