Examples

Example 1: Create a virtual desktop deployment

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.

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

Example 2: Install role services for Virtual Desktop Infrastructure

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.

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