Gets the number of idle virtual desktops on hosts.

Syntax

Parameter Set: Default
Get-RDVirtualDesktopIdleCount [[-HostServer] <String[]> ] [-ConnectionBroker <String> ] [ <CommonParameters>]




Detailed Description

The Get-RDVirtualDesktopIdleCount cmdlet gets the number of idle virtual desktops on one or more hosts. This cmdlet retruns a value that represents the number of idle virtual desktops from every pool.

An idle virtual desktop is a virtual machine that is in a running state and there is no user logged on to it. Idle virtual desktops continue to run even if you configured the pool so that the server saves a virtual desktop that is not in use.

Parameters
