Detailed Description

The Set-BrokerMachine cmdlet sets properties on a machine or set of machines. You can specify a single machine by name or multiple machine instances can be passed to the command by piping or using the -InputObject parameter.

Parameters

Name Description Required? Pipeline Input Default Value
InputObject The machine instances whose properties you want to set. true true (ByValue)
MachineName The machine whose properties you want to set. true true (ByPropertyName)
PassThru This cmdlet does not generate any output, unless you use the PassThru parameter, in which case it returns the affected record. false false False
AssignedClientName Changes the client name assignment of the machine. Set this to \$null to remove the assignment. You can assign machines to multiple users, a single client IP address, or a single client name, but only to one of these categories at a time. false false
AssignedIPAddress Changes the client IP address assignment of the machine. Set this to \$null to remove the assignment. You can assign machines to multiple users, a single client IP address, or a single client name, but only to one of these categories at a time. false false
HostedMachineId The unique ID by which the hypervisor recognizes the machine. This may only be set for VMs which are not provisioned by MCS. false false
HypervisorConnectionUid The hypervisor connection that runs the machine. This may only be set for VMs which are not provisioned by MCS. false false
InMaintenanceMode Sets whether the machine is in maintenance mode or not. A machine in maintenance mode is not available for new sessions, and for managed machines all automatic power management is disabled. false false
IsReserved Specifies whether the machine should be reserved for special use, for example, for AppDisk preparation. A machine cannot be reserved if it is already a member of a desktop group. false false
PublishedName The name of the machine that is displayed in StoreFront, if the machine has been published. It can be set only for private desktops. false false
LoggingId 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. 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
TraceParent Specifies the trace parent assigned for internal diagnostic tracing use false false
TraceState Specifies the trace state assigned for internal diagnostic tracing use false false
VirtualSiteId Specifies the virtual site the PowerShell snap-in will connect to. false false

Input Type

Citrix.Broker.Admin.Sdk.Machine

You can pipe in the machines whose properties you want to set.

Return Values

None Or Citrix.Broker.Admin.Sdk.Machine

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

Examples

Example 1

C:\PS> Set-BrokerMachine -MachineName 'MyDomain\MyMachine' -HypervisorConnectionUid 3

Description

This example specifies a machine by name and sets its hypervisor connection.

Example 2

C:\PS> $machines = Get-BrokerMachine -MachineName 'MyDomain\\*'

C:\PS> Set-BrokerMachine -InputObject $machines -HypervisorConnectionUid 3

Description

This example finds all machines in domain MyDomain and sets their hypervisor connections.

Example 3

C:\PS> Get-BrokerMachine -MachineName 'MyDomain\\*' | Set-BrokerMachine -HypervisorConnectionUid 3

Description

This example also finds all machines in domain MyDomain and sets their hypervisor connections.
