comment Windows Server 2012 R2, multiple Hyper-V Virtual Network Switches for multiple VMs
It will be much more simple if you can obtain an IP address for each of your VMs. The Hyper-V virtual switch does not have an address of its own and does not route packets.

comment Windows Server 2012 Remotedesktop: connect to a specific session host
@joeqwerty Session hosts know that they are part of a farm, and in this case may redirect the incoming session after consulting with the broker server.

comment Windows 2012 RDS RemoteApp, Access to local Drives
Just to rule out the possibility that local drive redirection is masking the server's C drive I suggest disabling some of the redirection features from the client settings tab of the properties window of the collection you are working with.

comment RDS 2012 Certificates - Subject Names do not match
Read through the event logs for each of the role services. Check the Microsoft->Windows->TerminalServices-SessionBroker->Operational log to see whether the Gateway service was able to establish a connection to the RD Broker role service.

comment Can I install a Windows Server 2012 virtual server using Hyper-V on Windows Server 2012 with the same exact product key?
@pauska The document I linked to comes from Microsoft's volume licensing site, and is titled "Licensing Microsoft Server Products for Use in Virtual Environments".

comment Can I install a Windows Server 2012 virtual server using Hyper-V on Windows Server 2012 with the same exact product key?
@MichaelHampton There is no simple answer to his question, but using the same MAK key to activate both a host and a hyper-v guest is not the proper way to do it.

comment Can I install a Windows Server 2012 virtual server using Hyper-V on Windows Server 2012 with the same exact product key?
I down voted because this answer is incorrect. Windows Server 2012 Standard is licensed to run 2 virtual machines. This limitation has nothing to do with the number of activations left on the MAK key used by the server. A better link for information is here.

comment Can you use a local path for mandatory profiles?
Thanks! I was basically doing this same procedure, but would never have stumbled on what you wrote down in step 7.

comment How can I work around problems with certificate configuration in Remote Desktop Services?
Thanks for the information. We are using certificates signed by our own CA. The problem I'm having is unique to Windows Server 2012. The GUI claims that certificates are not configured correctly or even at all.

@Carlos I'm using certs signed by my own CA. Would you mind sharing what fields you used in your certificates?

comment How can I work around problems with certificate configuration in Remote Desktop Services?
@Lizz As far as I can tell the certificate we're using for the RD Web Access role service is being accepted by clients. The user interface continues to report "Not Configured" even though it's actually using the certificate I specified.
