Detailed Description

Retrieves machines matching the specified criteria. If no parameters are specified, this cmdlet enumerates all machines.

Get-BrokerMachine returns objects that combine machine configuration and state information.

For single-session machines, session information is displayed if present. If "fast user switching" is enabled, more than one session may be present on single-session machines. Because this cmdlet returns information only for a single session, if two sessions are present it will return information about the brokered session (rather than, for example, an unbrokered direct RDP session). If there is no session running, session-related fields return \$null.

For multi-session machines, no session information about single sessions is displayed by this cmdlet, and so are always \$null. Get-BrokerSession can be used to get information about sessions on both multi-session and single-session machines.

To count machines, rather than retrieve full details of each machine, use Group-BrokerMachine instead.

See about_Broker_Filtering for information about advanced filtering options, and about_Broker_Machines for background information about machines.
