    I have a terminal services environment that currently has 1 domain controller (SBS 2011) (running Exchange/AD/File sharing etc) and 1 terminal server (2008 R2).
    We have 30 users on the system but this is due to expand so we want to make allowances for the additional workload.

    I have started reading up on the use of TS Broker and I see best practices dictate that we should use round robin DNS to distribute initial authentication, and that we should also have a dedicated machine for TS Broker, which then distributes users between all TS servers.

    We are planning this on quite a small scale (we are looking at around 35-40 users total in the next 12 months, so still a small setup).
    Just wondering if its supported/advisable to just install TS Broker on the existing TS, then add 1 more TS to the equation, and let the current TS send additional requests to the second server.
    Also I wonder if we definitely need the DNS round robin setup for our environment – I am assuming this is advised to reduce authentication load on the terminal servers?.

    Any thoughts?
