Specify the Data Source for TS Web Access

Applies To: Windows Server 2008

When you deploy TS Web Access, you can specify the terminal server from which to populate the list of RemoteApp programs that will appear in the TS Web Access Web Part. The Web Part is populated by all RemoteApp programs that are enabled for TS Web Access on that server's RemoteApp Programs list.

You must log on to the TS Web Access server by using the local Administrator account or an account that is a member of the TS Web Access Administrators group on the TS Web Access server to complete this procedure. Review details about using the appropriate accounts and group memberships at Local and Domain Default Groups (https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=83477).
