Setting up video card forwarding in RDSH.

Hi. I have an ISXI and a Tesla video card. How can I route them to RDSH? Do I have to configure something on the server?

Hello

Initially you can configure through group policy:

(gpedit.msc) under Computer Configuration -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Remote Desktop Services -> Remote Desktop Session Host -> Remote Session Environment:

Prioritize H.264/AVC 444 Graphics mode for Remote Desktop connections
When enabled on the RDP Server, the H.264/AVC 444 mode will be prioritized when the RDP 10 client and server both support AVC/H.264 and support the AVC 444 mode. Note: For Remote Desktop Session Host (RDSH) environments only full desktop sessions are supported with H.264/AVC 444, RemoteApp sessions still use the proprietary codecs for now.
Configure H.264/AVC hardware encoding for Remote Desktop connections
This policy lets you enable hardware encoding for AVC/H.264, when used in conjunction with the AVC444 mode. When enabled, each remote desktop monitor will use up one AVC/H.264 encoder on the server. If all AVC/H.264 encoders are in use, the RDP Server will automatically fallback to using Software.
How to determine if a Remote Desktop session is using AVC444 mode and is using hardware encoding
RDP logs an event to the eventlog which helps to determine if you are running in the AVC 444 mode and whether Hardware Encoding is used:

But additionally, I would recommend to open a discussion to ESXi forums to know if there is any specific settings applicable up to their community knowledge and experience,
