Specify a terminal server to be used by the TS Web Access server

To resolve this issue, specify a terminal server from which to populate the list of TS RemoteApp programs that will appear in the TS Web Access Web Part.

To perform this procedure, you must be logged on with the local Administrator account or have membership in the local TS Web Access Administrators group on the TS Web Access server.

To specify which terminal server to use:

  3. On the title bar, click the Configuration tab.

    Note: If you access the TS Web Access Web site by using the TS Web Access Administration option, the page automatically opens to the Configuration tab.

  4. In the Editor Zone area, in the Terminal server name box, enter the name of the terminal server that you want to use as the data source.
