Hello,

Trying to install RDS on a Server 2012 installation, using the powershell commands.

New-SessionDeployment -ConnectionBroker Server1.Domain.local -WebAccessServer Server1.Domain.local -SessionHost Server1.Domain.local

It fails with the errors:

New-SessionDeployment:  Validation failed for the "RD Session Host" Parameter. Server1.Domain.local    You cannot restart the local server.

Are you running in an elevated Powershell session? Run powershell as an administrator or turn off UAC and try again.

ignore the last comment, i got it.  Though i'm pretty sure it runs as admin by default.

Same error msg.

Edit:  Turned off UAC and rebooted, no change.
