Syntax

    [-SourceHost] <String>

Description

The Move-RDVirtualDesktop cmdlet moves a virtual desktop to a new Remote Desktop Virtualization Host (RD Virtualization Host) server.

Examples

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

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

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.

Required Parameters

-DestinationHost

Specifies the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the new RD Virtualization Host server for the virtual desktop.

Type:String
Position:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False

-Name

Specifies the name of a virtual desktop.

Type:String
Position:2
Default value:None

-SourceHost

Specifies the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the current RD Virtualization Host server for the virtual desktop.

Type:String
Position:0
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False

Optional Parameters

-ConnectionBroker

Specifies the Remote Desktop Connection Broker (RD Connection Broker) server for a remote desktop deployment. If you do not specify a value, the cmdlet uses the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the local computer.
