Detailed Description

The Get-BrokerRebootSchedule cmdlet is used to enumerate desktop group reboot schedules that match all of the supplied criteria.

A reboot schedule can be configured to cause all of the machines in a desktop group to be rebooted at a particular time each day or each week, with the reboot of the individual machines spread out over the duration of the whole reboot cycle. A specific warning message can be configured to be displayed to users who are running sessions on the machines being rebooted. Note that each desktop group can only have a single reboot schedule configured.

See about_Broker_Filtering for information about advanced filtering options.

  • Enabled (System.Boolean) True if this schedule is currently enabled, false otherwise.

  • Frequency (Citrix.Broker.Admin.SDK.RebootScheduleFrequency) Whether the schedule runs daily or weekly.

  • RebootDuration (System.Int32) Approximate maximum number of minutes over which the scheduled reboot cycle runs.

Name Description Required? Pipeline Input Default Value
DesktopGroupUid Gets the reboot schedule for the desktop group having this Uid. true false
DesktopGroupName Gets the reboot schedule for the desktop group having this name. false false
Active Gets desktop group reboot schedules according to whether they are currently active or not. A schedule is active if there is a reboot cycle currently running that was started as a result of the schedule. false false
Day Gets the reboot schedules set to run on the specified day (one of Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday). false false
Enabled Gets the reboot schedules with the specified Enabled value. false false
Frequency Gets the reboot schedules with the specified frequency (either Weekly or Daily). false false
RebootDuration Gets the reboot schedules with the specified duration. false false
StartTime Gets the reboot schedules with the specified start time (HH:MM). false false
WarningRepeatInterval Gets the reboot schedules with the specified warning repeat interval. false false
ReturnTotalRecordCount When specified, this causes the cmdlet to output an error record containing the number of records available. This error record is additional information and does not affect the objects written to the output pipeline. See about_Broker_Filtering for details. false false False
MaxRecordCount Specifies the maximum number of records to return. false false 250
Skip Skips the specified number of records before returning results. Also reduces the count returned by -ReturnTotalRecordCount. false false 0
SortBy Sorts the results by the specified list of properties. The list is a set of property names separated by commas, semi-colons, or spaces. Optionally, prefix each name with a + or - to indicate ascending or descending order. Ascending order is assumed if no prefix is present. false false The default sort order is by name or unique identifier.
Filter Gets records that match a PowerShell style filter expression. See about_Broker_Filtering for details. false false
Property Specifies the properties to be returned. This is similar to piping the output of the command through Select-Object, but the properties are filtered more efficiently at the server. false false
AdminAddress 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. false false Localhost. Once a value is provided by any cmdlet, this value will become the default.
BearerToken Specifies the bearer token assigned to the calling user false false
