RDS Session Host on the Connection Broker

Hi all,

We have a VMware template which deploys our virtual machines.
This all works fine. I am creating a template which will also configure the RDS roles. Each server must have a session based RDS config.

I am running this script as local admin:

$ServerName = Read-Host -Prompt 'Input your server FQDN name'
New-RDSessionDeployment -ConnectionBroker $ServerName -WebAccessServer $ServerName -SessionHost $ServerName -Verbose

however, I get the error: New-RDSessionDeployment : Validation failed for the "RD Connection Broker" parameter.
MYSERVER.xx.yy.fr Unable to connect to the server by using Windows PowerShell remoting.
Verify that you can connect to the server.

Now I have read this on a other website: Note If you are installing the Session Host on the Connection Broker, then you need to run this cmdlet on a remote server, as running it on the connection Broker will give you the following error:

How do I get around this? I want to do everything in this template, not some other manual actions on a different server.

    Ok, so the command works when I run it as a domain admin.
    How do I make the command run as domain admin when the Local admin invokes the script?

    there is no -credential parameter.
