Is there a way in server 2016 to mass send a message to all my RD users and then mass log them off.  I remember this as a function in 2008 but can’t seem to be able to figure it in 2016.
We run updates on a Thursday night and I need a way of asking users to log off (even though we warn them multiple times) and then logging off in mass (approx. 300 total users).

- Server 2016 farm / 7 2016 RD servers
- 2x 2016 connection brokers
- VMware

Many thanks in advanced….
