Restart VM VDI remotly

Hi Guys,

I have create a script to reboot VM (VDI) remotely. This script works with my admin account but I would like to have the script run weekly and require a more secure account. I though that the Hyper-V administrator account would let me do this but when testing It does not seem to work. get-rdconnectionBrokerhightavailability and restart-VM commands both fail.

Can anyone tell me what rights I would need to give the account to be able to run these commands and restart VM (VDI) remotely.

Thanks

Craig

    Hi,

    - Account to restart VM remotely

    By default, only administrators can shut down the server remotely. Please check if add a user account to the policy "Force shutdown from a remote system" could work.

    After that the user will get the SeRemoteShutdown privilege and will be able to restart the server remotely using this command:

    shutdown -m \hamb-rds01 -r -f -t 0

    -Account to run the command "get-rdconnectionBrokerhightavailability"

    As far as I know, it requirements "domain admin" account to run "get-rdconnectionBrokerhightavailability".
