        This guide is considered the basic Remote Desktop Services step-by-step guide. All other step-by-step guides developed for Remote Desktop Services will assume that this guide has been completed first. This step-by-step guide walks you through the process of setting up a working Remote Desktop Services infrastructure in a test environment. During this process, you create an Active Directory® domain, install the Remote Desktop Session Host (RD Session Host) role service, and configure the Remote Desktop Connection client computer. After you’ve completed this process, you can use the test lab environment to learn about Remote Desktop Services technology on Windows Server® 2008 R2 and assess how it might be deployed in your organization. The goal of a Remote Desktop Session Host (RD Session Host) server is to host Windows-based programs or the full Windows desktop for Remote Desktop Services clients. Users can connect to an RD Session Host server to run programs, to save files, and to use resources on that server.
