Changing the DNS RR name for RDS 2012 Connection Broker HA

Perhaps you’ve configured RDS 2012 and are using the new Active/Active Connection Broker technology. Perhaps like me you selected a name during the HA configuration for DNS round robin name that you no longer want to use? If you attempt to edit the Deployment Properties you won’t be able to change this value.

Edit Deployment Properties RDS 2012 Connection Broker

Edit Deployment Properties RDS 2012 Connection Broker

Well this frustrated me at first but I was able to find the Powershell cmdlet that allows you to modify this after deployment.

Thanks to this thread on the Microsoft Blogs siteĀ http://blogs.msdn.com/b/rds/archive/2012/06/27/rd-connection-broker-high-availability-in-windows-server-2012.aspx

The Powershell Cmdlet is:

Set-RDClientAccessName -ConnectionBroker <ActiveManagementServer name> -ClientAccessName <New DNS RR Name>

Run that and you’ll be squared away! I officially take back my hulk smash RDS 2012 comment now. :)
