404 - Page not found with url https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/remotedesktop/get-rdserver

I'm going to the Microsoft site: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/remotedesktop/get-rdserver and it keeps giving me 404 - page not found. This isn't the only link, all the other Remote Desktop Services pages do the same. This link is the one that pops up when doing a search. Has it moved and if so where?

The link has been changed to https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/powershell/module/rdmgmt/get-rdserver

The change is a conscious one to make the documentation entries match the module name of cmdlet, so there is no need to report to there. Instead you're encouraged to notify "the source that you get the link from" that the link has been changed and let them update it.

Thinking about the context of issue, and I opened an issue to hope address the broader problem of documentation with module that has been renamed across OS version.

I went directly to the Microsoft docs site and didn't find remote desktop services. It used to be there but not anymore. This is what I see:

module



I did eventually find it after digging around and it is at rdmgmt. Thank you for your help.

Definitely a problem, likely caused by the migration to the new docs site. I would recommend you use the feedback tool on the doc site to report the 404s. Even the Get-help get-rdserver -online link is old.

You can use Get-Help to get the documentation within PS itself.

The PS repo is here and some of the modules are located within there. Not sure if they have open sourced the remotedesktop module or not. You could also consider posting the issue in their repo and maybe they can point you in the right direction.

More important is what page has the broken link? This is the page that needs updated or reported.
