Description From cendio 2017-09-05 14:18:24
We state this in our TAG:

  "ThinLinc has a feature where sessions against Windows Remote Desktop Servers
are distributed among several available hosts. In order for this to work, the
tl-loadagent service must run on all Windows servers."

Which is not true, regarding that a deployment of RDS on 2012r2 and 2016
requires a session broker, which is in it self a load balancer of session
between session hosts in a RDS cluster. Actually, ThinLinc loadbalancer
operation will end up in a no-op in such environment.

I like the new paragraph much better than the old one. Makes it clear that the
administrator has a choice between what Windows provides and what we provide.
