I have a remote desktop farm with 6 RD hosts that are running Windows Server 2012. I want to allow and disallow new connection to each server using PowerShell. I found the powershell command that is suppose to do the job, but it does not work.  When I verify in the Server Manager I still see the host server allowing new connections.

Command:
Set-RDSessionHost -SessionHost "RDHost1.domain.local" -NewConnectionAllowed "No" -ConnectionBroker "rdcb.domain.local"

I'm I doing something wrong? I tried running the command from the  RD Broker and host.

I have been wondering about the same, but the help tells different. "No" is valid.

Thank you for the response.  I was able to fix my problem. When you run the PowerShell command, it does not reflect right away in the Server Manager.  After closing the server manager and re-opening it I see my changes. If I run the Get-RDSessionHost command I get see if new connections are allowed right away.

Get-RDSessionHost -CollectionName “My Collection Name” -ConnectionBroker mybroker.domain.local
