Virtual machines that are hosted on a Remote Desktop Virtualization Host (RD Virtualization Host) server can be made available to users through RemoteApp and Desktop Connection in either of the following ways:
- You can assign a user in Active Directory Domain Services a specific virtual machine to use as a personal virtual desktop.
- You can group identically configured virtual machines into a virtual desktop pool.
A virtual machine should not be both a member of a virtual desktop pool and assigned to a user as a personal virtual desktop.
To see a list of which virtual machines are assigned to users as personal virtual desktops and which virtual machines are members of virtual desktop pools, use the Get-VirtualDesktop cmdlet, which is available in the Remote Desktop Services module for Windows PowerShell. For more information about using Windows PowerShell with Remote Desktop Services, see the Remote Desktop Services Technical Reference (
