RDP feed URL does not automatically update

Follow

Overview

Users may encounter an issue related to the RDP feed failing to automatically update, forcing them to manually update their RemoteApps multiple times a day.

The solution to this is creating a GPO in the local domain.

Resolution

Follow the steps below to create a GPO in your domain, based on the operating system used.

Creating a GPO for Windows 7 machines

  1. Open the Group Policy Management Editor on the domain controller and create a new GPO.
  2. Go to User Configuration -> Policies -> Windows Settings -> Scripts.
  3. Double click Logon and then click Show Files. This opens an explorer window where you can add files that will be saved in this GPO.
  4. Download the Install-RADCConnection.ps1 script from here and save it in that folder.
  5. Create a new text file with the following content (customize it based on your feed) and save it as feed.wcx.
    •   <workspace name="Enterprise Remote Access" xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/ts/2008/09/tswcx" xmlns:xs="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema">
        <defaultFeed url="https://rdweb.yourdomain.com/RDWeb/Feed/webfeed.aspx" />
        </workspace>
      
  6. Select the PowerShell Scripts tab and click Add.
  7. Click Browse and select the .ps1 file. In the Parameters field, enter the name of the wcx file.
  8. Click OK.
  9. Roll out your new GPO to your domain.

Creating a GPO for Windows 8 and Windows 10 machines

  1. Open the Group Policy Management Editor on the domain controller and create a new GPO.
  2. Go to User Configuration -> Policies -> Administrative Templates -> Windows Components -> Remote Desktop Services -> RemoteApp and Desktop Connections.
  3. Double click the Specify default connection URL key and enable it. Enter the feed URL in the Default Connection URL field.
  4. Click OK.
  5. Roll out your new GPO to your domain.
