Set-BrokerPrivateDesktop [-MachineName] <String> [-PassThru] [-AssignedClientName <String>] [-AssignedIPAddress <String>] [-ColorDepth <ColorDepth>] [-Description <String>] [-IconUid <Int32>] [-InMaintenanceMode <Boolean>] [-PublishedName <String>] [-SecureIcaRequired <Boolean>] [-LoggingId <Guid>] [-AdminAddress <String>] [<CommonParameters>]

Detailed Description

Private desktops are automatically created when a machine is added to a desktop group with a DesktopKind of 'Private', and these inherit default properties. Use Set-BrokerPrivateDesktop to change the configuration settings of an existing private desktop.

To specify private desktops, you can choose whether to update by machine name, or by passing a PrivateDesktop or an array of PrivateDesktop objects. You can also use the Uid or an array of Uids instead.

You cannot modify many properties of a private desktop as these contain status information; for example DNSName, RegistrationState, and OSVersion.

Use Add- and Remove- cmdlets to update relationships between private desktops and other objects. For example, you can add a tag to a private desktop with:

Add-BrokerTag $tag -Desktop $desktop.Uid

Similarly, assign users to private desktops with:

Add-BrokerUser $user -PrivateDesktop $desktop

Many of the fields that can be set with this cmdlet can also be set with Set-BrokerMachine, such as MaintenanceMode. Using Set-BrokerMachine is preferred in these cases.

For more information about desktops, see about_Broker_Desktops; for more information about machines, see about_Broker_Machines.

Parameters

-InputObject<PrivateDesktop[]>

Specifies the desktop or array of desktops to modify. You can also use an integer Uid of the desktop instead.

Required? true
Default Value  
Accept Pipeline Input? true (ByValue)

-MachineName<String>

Specifies the desktop to modify using its machine name (in the form 'domain\machine').

Required? true
Default Value  
Accept Pipeline Input? true (ByPropertyName)

-PassThru<SwitchParameter>

This cmdlet does not generate any output, unless you use the PassThru parameter, in which case it returns the affected record.

Required? false
Default Value False
Accept Pipeline Input? false

-AssignedClientName<String>

Changes the client name assignment of the desktop. Set this to $null to remove the assignment. Desktops can be assigned to multiple users, a single IP address, or a single client name, but only to one of these categories at one time.

Required? false
Default Value  
Accept Pipeline Input? false

-AssignedIPAddress<String>

Changes the IP address assignment of the desktop. Set this to $null to remove the assignment. Desktops can be assigned to multiple users, a single IP address, or a single client name, but only to one of these categories at one time.

Required? false
Default Value  
Accept Pipeline Input? false

-ColorDepth<ColorDepth>

Changes the color depth connections to this desktop should use.

Valid values are $null, FourBit, EightBit, SixteenBit, and TwentyFourBit. A value of $null results in the desktop group value being used instead.

Required? false
Default Value  
Accept Pipeline Input? false

-Description<String>

Changes the description of the desktop. This is seen only by Citrix Administrators and is not visible to users.

Required? false
Default Value  
Accept Pipeline Input? false

-IconUid<Int32>

Changes the icon displayed for this desktop. When this setting is $null, the icon displayed is determined by the desktop group.

Required? false
Default Value  
Accept Pipeline Input? false

-InMaintenanceMode<Boolean>

Changes the maintenance mode setting of a desktop. When a desktop is in maintenance mode, it is not included as a candidate when brokering new sessions, and it does not participate in automatic power management (idle pool); however, it still responds to explicit power operations.

Required? false
Default Value  
Accept Pipeline Input? false

-PublishedName<String>

Changes the name displayed to the user for this desktop. When this setting is $null, the name displayed is determined by the PublishedName of the desktop group.

Required? false
Default Value  
Accept Pipeline Input? false

-SecureIcaRequired<Boolean>

Changes whether or not SecureICA is required for connections to this desktop. When this setting is $null, the SecureIcaRequired setting from the desktop group is used.

Required? false
Default Value  
Accept Pipeline Input? false

-LoggingId<Guid>

Specifies the identifier of the high level operation that this cmdlet call forms a part of. Desktop Studio and Desktop Director typically create High Level Operations. PowerShell scripts can also wrap a series of cmdlet calls in a High Level Operation by way of the Start-LogHighLevelOperation and Stop-LogHighLevelOperation cmdlets.

Required? false
Default Value  
Accept Pipeline Input? false

-AdminAddress<String>

Specifies the address of a XenDesktop controller that the PowerShell snapin will connect to. This can be provided as a host name or an IP address.

Required? false
Default Value Localhost. Once a value is provided by any cmdlet, this value will become the default.
Accept Pipeline Input? false

Input Type

Citrix.Broker.Admin.SDK.PrivateDesktop You can pipe PrivateDesktop objects into this cmdlet instead of on the command line with the -InputObject parameter.

Return Values

None or Citrix.Broker.Admin.SDK.PrivateDesktop

This cmdlet does not generate any output, unless you use the PassThru parameter, in which case it generates a Citrix.Broker.Admin.SDK.PrivateDesktop object.
