Azure Virtual Desktop Common PowerShell Operations


Azure Virtual Desktop (AVD) is a comprehensive desktop and app virtualization service that runs in the cloud. It allows you to access a virtualized desktop or application from anywhere, on any device.

Here is a simple PowerShell script that can be used to manage various AVD operations:

# Import the WVD module
Import-Module -Name Microsoft.RDInfra.RDPowerShell

# Connect to WVD
$WVDConnection = Connect-RdsAccount

# List all the WVD host pools

# Get the details of a specific host pool
Get-RdsHostPool -Name "MyHostPool"

# Create a new host pool
New-RdsHostPool -Name "MyNewHostPool" -SessionType "RemoteApp"

# Update the properties of an existing host pool
Set-RdsHostPool -Name "MyHostPool" -EnableAutomaticUpdates $true

# Delete a host pool
Remove-RdsHostPool -Name "MyHostPool"

# List all the WVD users

# Get the details of a specific user
Get-RdsUser -UserPrincipalName ""

# Create a new user
New-RdsUser -UserPrincipalName "" -Name "John Smith"

# Update the properties of an existing user
Set-RdsUser -UserPrincipalName "" -UsageLocation "US"

# Delete a user
Remove-RdsUser -UserPrincipalName ""

# Disconnect from WVD

This script demonstrates some of the basic WVD operations that can be performed using PowerShell, such as listing and managing host pools, listing and managing users, and connecting and disconnecting from WVD. You can use these commands as a starting point and add additional functionality as needed.
