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.

Parameters

Name Description Required? Pipeline Input Default Value
InputObject Specifies the desktop or array of desktops to modify. You can also use an integer Uid of the desktop instead. true true (ByValue)
MachineName Specifies the desktop to modify using its machine name (in the form 'domain\machine'). 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 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. false false
AssignedIPAddress 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. false false
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.
false false
Description Changes the description of the desktop. This is seen only by Citrix Administrators and is not visible to users. false false
IconUid Changes the icon displayed for this desktop. When this setting is \$null, the icon displayed is determined by the desktop group. false false
InMaintenanceMode 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. false false
PublishedName 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. false false
SecureIcaRequired 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. 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.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.
