Last week I’ve visited Microsoft Ignite The Tour in Amsterdam. Two realy great days with a lot of new information, presentations and knowledge. There also where a couple of new announcements from Microsoft.
My focus was Azure IaaS, security, governance and cost control within Azure. Of course there was a lot more to see, but this event was only 2 days, so I’ve had to make choices!
Microsoft has published the slide decks online, so you can download these now! (click)
Hoppefully I’ll be present the next year at this great event!!
When you delete a old RDS Session Host server from your environment whitout first deleting the server from your RDS Farm, you’ll receive the following error:
Install SQL Management Studio on your RDS Connection Broker and connect to the following server name:
Create a new query:
SELECT TOP 1000 [Id],[Name] FROM [RDCms].[rds].[Server]
Here you can see all your servers in your RDS Farm. Notice the Id of your ‘old’ server. In this example it is server ‘RDS-01’ with ID 2.
Create a new query:
delete from rds.RoleRdsh where ServerID = ‘2’;
Start Powershell on your RDS Broker server and type:
Now you can open your Server Manager again and manage your RDS Farm!
