Examples

Example 1: Move a virtual desktop to a new RD Virtualization Host server

This example moves a virtual desktop from one RD Virtualization server to another. The commands run on the RD Connection Broker and move virtual desktops from the source host to the destination host.

The first command enables Credential Security Support Provider (CredSSP) authentication on the destination host. The Enable-WSManCredSSP cmdlet delegates the client credentials to the delegate server.

The second command enables CredSSP authentication on the source host. The Enable-WSManCredSSP cmdlet delegates the server credentials to the delegate server.

The third command gets a credential object based on the user name and password that the user enters. The command stores the results in the $Creds variable.

The fourth command moves the virtual desktop named RDS-WKS-A2 from the source host named rdvh-1.contoso.com to the destination host named rdvh-2.contoso.com. The command uses the credential object stored in the $Creds variable.


 

PS C:\> Enable-WSManCredSSP -Role "Client" -DelegateComputer * -Force
PS C:\> Enable-WSManCredSSP -Role "Server" -DelegateComputer * -Force
PS C:\> $Creds = Get-Credential
PS C:\> Move-RDVirtualDesktop -SourceHost "rdvh-1.contoso.com" -DestinationHost "rdvh-2.contoso.com" -Name "RDS-WKS-A2" -Credential $Creds
