800xA RDPServer - Addition to SCC tool
I am setting a 22.214.171.124 800xA system user Server 2016.
When I am using windows 2016 Servers for my Remote Desktop Clients.
When I am adding the RDP Servers to the SCC tool to Deploy.
Do I add as a Server or Client before Deploying?
When I add as a Client - The system does not start on the RDP node.

A RDP server is a client in terms of System 800xA.
The image of "Could not connect to the system" is the Batch systray icon in trouble. I assume you can still open a workplace in this state, but may have issues with batch related functionality?
If you cannot resolve the Batch icon trouble, I suggest filing a support case with your regional ABB support center.
Certain things in Microsoft Windows become different when enabling the RDP Server role, perhaps the Batch systray icon has a problem with running "in clients on server OS"?
There are benefits of keeping clients as "clients"; less overhead in terms of services that should run, less complexity in configuration, etc.
There are no immediate dangers of having a RDP server added as a "server", however I recommed seeking official help from ABB with this problem.
