Makes the broker load, from the specified Configuration Service instance, the addresses that the Service can be reached on.


Reset-BrokerServiceGroupMembership -ConfigServiceInstance <PSObject[]> [-LoggingId <Guid>] [-AdminAddress <String>] [<CommonParameters>]

Detailed Description

This cmdlet reloads the access permissions and Configuration Service locations for the Broker Service. It must be run on at least one instance of the Broker Service after installation and registration with the Configuration Service. Without this operation, the Broker Services cannot communicate with the other services that form part of the Citrix XenDesktop deployment. Once the cmdlet is run, the services keep up to date when additional services are added to the deployment provided that the Configuration Service is not stopped. Run this cmdlet to refresh this information if automatic updates do not occur when new services are added to the deployment. If more than one Configuration Service instance is passed to the cmdlet, only the first is used that meets the expected service type requirements.
