Section Number and Name: "Connecting to the RDP console" and "Connecting to a Windows virtual machine with an RDP console"
Describe the issue:
There are two issues related to our RDP documentation. First is that the UI based documentation describes dependencies that are not really required, we should fix it to make the guide relevant to bigger portion of customers. Second is that the CLI based documentation suffers the same problem plus it is not consistent with our SSH documentation despite having almost the same procedure and requirements.
Suggestions for UI docs improvement:
- Once an underlying UI bug https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=2028042 is resolved, remove the prerequisites.
- Remove the 6. step "In the Network Interface list, select the layer-2 NIC.", so the network is kept on the default.
Suggestions for CLI docs improvement:
- Turn this section to the same format as is used in the "Accessing a virtual machine via SSH with YAML configurations". Apart from changing the text describing SSH to RDP, change the port 22 to 3389 and instead of "ssh fedora.55.101 -p 30093" connect using an RDP client as described in the last two steps of the current guide.
