Last Updated: 4/3/2017

SYNOPSIS

Sets the maximum number of idle virtual desktops on host servers.

SYNTAX

Default (Default)

Set-RDVirtualDesktopIdleCount [-IdleCount] <Int32> [[-HostServer] <String[]>] [-ConnectionBroker <String>]
 [-BatchSize <Int32>] [<CommonParameters>]

Allocation

Set-RDVirtualDesktopIdleCount [-Allocation] <Hashtable> [-ConnectionBroker <String>] [-BatchSize <Int32>]
 [<CommonParameters>]

DESCRIPTION

The Set-RDVirtualDesktopIdleCount cmdlet sets the maximum number of active but idle virtual desktops on one or more host servers. This cmdlet sets the total number of virtual desktops that can be idle in all pools.

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.

EXAMPLES

Example 1: Set the number of idle virtual desktops on host servers

PS C:\>Set-RDVirtualDesktopIdleCount -IdleCount 10 -HostServer @("rdvh-1.contoso.com","rdvh-2.contoso.com") -ConnectionBroker "rdcb.contoso.com"

This command sets the maximum number of active but idle virtual desktops on the host servers named rdvh-1.contoso.com and rdvh-2.contoso.com.

Example 2: Allocate idle virtual desktops to host servers

PS C:\>Set-RDVirtualDesktopIdleCount -Allocation @{"RDS-WKS-A26.contoso.com"=2;" RDS-WKS-A27.contoso.com"=4} -ConnectionBroker "rdcb.contoso.com"

This command sets the number of idle virtual desktops for specific host servers. The command allocates 2 idle virtual desktops for the host server named RDS-WKS-A26.contoso.com, and 4 idle virtual desktops for the host server named RDS-WKS-A27.contoso.com.
