How Do I Install a LOB Application for My RDS Users?

Applies to: Nerdio For Azure (NFA) Profesional and Enterprise customers only

Nerdio helps Enterprises improve its operational efficiency by provisioning critical Line-of-business (LOB) applications from a common system. As these LOB applications connect multiple systems, users and business units of your organization, you will want to install them on an RDS server. In Nerdio, we refer to RDS servers using the naming convention RDSHxx. For example, every Nerdio account will have an RDS server named RDSH01. You can clone and have more than one RDS servers, or even set up an RDS Collection. Let us understand the steps to install a LOB application on RDSH01. 

Note: NFA Core plan does not support RDS desktops, RDSH01 servers or RDGW01 or RDS collections
