Description

The New-RDVirtualDesktopDeployment cmdlet installs the role services that Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) requires to create a virtual machine-based desktop deployment. You can specify the CreateVirtualSwitch parameter to create a pooled virtual desktop collection in addition to installing the role services.

In Windows ServerĀ® 2012, the Microsoft Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) deployment is a scenario-based installation that allows you to install, configure, and manage your virtual desktops from a central location.

Examples

Example 1: Create a virtual desktop deployment

PS C:\> New-RDVirtualDesktopDeployment -ConnectionBroker "rdcb.contoso.com" -WebAccessServer "rdwa.contoso.com" -VirtualizationHost "rdsh.contoso.com" -CreateVirtualSwitch

This command installs the role services that Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) requires to create a virtual machine-based desktop deployment. The command uses the CreateVirtualSwitch parameter to create a pooled virtual desktop collection.

Example 2: Install role services for Virtual Desktop Infrastructure

PS C:\> New-RDVirtualDesktopDeployment -ConnectionBroker "rdcb.contoso.com" -WebAccessServer "rdwa.contoso.com" -VirtualizationHost @("rdsh-1.contoso.com","rdsh-2.contoso.com")

This command installs the role services that Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) requires to create a virtual machine-based desktop deployment. The command installs the Remote Desktop Web Access (RD Web Access) role service on the server named rdwa.contoso.com, and installs the Virtualization Host (RD Virtualization Host) role service on the servers named rdsh-1.contoso.com and rdsh-2.contoso.com. The command does not create a pooled virtual desktop collection.
