Description

The Set-RDConnectionBrokerHighAvailability cmdlet sets high availability settings for Remote Desktop Connection Broker (RD Connection Broker) servers for a Remote Desktop deployment. You can use the Get-RDConnectionBrokerHighAvailability cmdlet to see current settings.

Examples

Example 1: Set high availability settings for a dedicated database server

PS C:\> Set-RDConnectionBrokerHighAvailability -ConnectionBroker "RDCB.Contoso.com" -DatabaseConnectionString "DRIVER=SQL Server Native Client 10.0;SERVER=sqlserver.contoso.com;Trusted_Connection=Yes;APP=Remote Desktop Services Connection Broker;Database=RemoteDesktopDeployment" -DatabaseFilePath "C:\RDFiles\RemoteDesktopDeployment.mdf" -ClientAccessName "RemoteResources.Contoso.com"

This command sets high availability settings for an RD Connection Broker server named RDCB.Contoso.com. The command specifies a database connection string, and includes the path to the database. The command specifies the client access name as RemoteResources.Contoso.com.

Example 2: Set high availability settings for a shared database server

PS C:\>Set-RDConnectionBrokerHighAvailability -ConnectionBroker "RDCB.Contoso.com" -DatabaseConnectionString "Driver={SQL Server Native Client 11.0};Server= sqlserver.contoso.com;Database= RemoteDesktopDeployment;Uid=admin1@wxm56whnww;Pwd=Password!;Encrypt=yes;Connection Timeout=30;" -DatabaseSecondaryConnectionString "Driver={SQL Server Native Client 11.0};Server= sqlserver.contoso.com;Database= RemoteDesktopDeployment;Uid=admin;Pwd=OtherPassword!;Encrypt=yes;Connection Timeout=30;"'-ClientAccessName "RemoteResources.Contoso.com"

This command sets high availability settings for an RD Connection Broker server named RDCB.Contoso.com. The command specifies a database connection string and a secondary connection string. The command specifies the client access name as RemoteResources.Contoso.com.

Required Parameters
