Syntax

Send-RDUserMessage
    [-HostServer] <String>
    [-UnifiedSessionID] <Int32>
    [-MessageTitle] <String>
    [-MessageBody] <String>
    [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The Send-RDUserMessage cmdlet sends a system message to a specified user session. Because the user session ID is unique only within the context of a session host, a different session host server can share the same user session ID. The host server and session ID that you specify by using this cmdlet uniquely identify a session within a deployment.

Examples

Example 1: Send a system message to users of a Remote Desktop application

PS C:\> Send-RDUserMessage -HostServer "rdsh.contoso.com" -UnifiedSessionID 1 -MessageTitle "Message from Administrator" -MessageBody "Please save your work. You will be logged off in 10 minutes"

This command sends a system message to users of the session with an ID of 1 on the host server named rdsh.contoso.com.
