I think i know what the answer is, but i wanted to run it by you experts first. We have 5 Virtual Desktops under RDS. It's not a pool setup. We have assigned individual users to specific VDI computers. Is the away that you can assign multiple users to one vdi? I can't do it in server manager, wasn't sure if there was a powershell command or something.

You are asking about 2 completely different technologies.

RDS (Remote Desktop Services) - this is a multi-user host where multiple users login to the same physical machine/OS at the same time interactively.

VDI (Virtual Desktop Interface)  - this is a single user/single computer solution where there are multiple copies of the OS, with 1 user per OS copy.

You cannot put multiple users on a single VDI machine (interactively).  However, in your Remote Desktop Services environment, each user can connect in and see their own desktop.  (This will be a combination of the All Users desktop and the user's individual desktop folder in their profile.)
