Not compatible with per-device CALs ^Before you install the Web Client, you should make sure you use per-user client access licenses (CALs) and not per-device CALs. Otherwise the HTML client would seize all per-device CALs, since it is not compatible with this type of license. It will display a corresponding warning again during installation. As an additional requirement, the Remote Desktop Services (RDS) deployment must include an RD Gateway even for internal usage on Windows Server 2019, despite the fact Microsoft announced otherwise during the Windows Server Summit.
Installation via PowerShell ^The RD Web Client is suitable for Windows Server 2016 and 2019, but Microsoft has yet to include it in the installation media of the operating systems. Currently it is not part of Server 2019 either. The installation occurs via PowerShell's package management, which downloads the required packages from PowerShell Gallery. As a first step, you must update the PowerShellGet module not only on Server 2016 but also on Server 2019. The following command achieves this:
Install-Module -Name PowerShellGet -ForceAt this point, it might be necessary to close the PowerShell window and start a new session. The actual installation requires four commands as this tutorial on Microsoft Docs describes:
Install-Module -Name RDWebClientManagement Install-RDWebClientPackage Import-RDWebClientBrokerCert <.cer file exported from the RD Broker> Publish-RDWebClientPackage -Type Production -LatestPlease verify the certificate for RD Connection Broker - Enable Single Sign On (SSO). In the RDS deployment configuration, this must always match the certificate previously imported from RD Broker to the Web Client. So if you renew the certificate for RD Broker, you must reimport it to the Web Client. After successfully adding the package for the Web Client, you can access it via the URL https://<fully qualified domain name of the server>/RDWeb/webclient. This currently supports newer versions of browsers such as Edge, IE 11, Google Chrome, Safari, or Firefox, but not on mobile devices.
