2.  Shut down Windows server A, use the Microsoft Windows Terminal Services Client (mstsc) to try to login to Windows server A and confirmed that the connection failed.

4. Cancel the launch and then launch the Windows application by SGD again, this time SGD connect to the available Windows server B.
