Expand Remote App Server Pool for SITS Live Remote

Began:

A slowness issue was identified while making changes to SITS Live Remote. Our team are currently working on a solution and will update this post when ready to proceed.

This change has been rolled back. Users should continue to use SITS Live Remote as normal.

Thank you for your continued patience and we apologise for the inconvenience caused.

The work is underway. We'll keep you updated on our progress.

We're making a change to SITS Live Remote, during which time the service will be available but at risk. Once the change is successfully completed, users must connect to the VPN and login to AppsAnywhere to download a new SITS Live Remote .RDP file.

This change is to allow the expansion of the RemoteApp Server Pool. Once users have the new .RDP file, no VPN connection will be required when using SITS Live Remote.

While we don't expect any issues, sometimes unexpected things happen. We'll update this post with progress.
