Up to now I used CMD or Autoit Scripting to reset RDP Sessions for Servers, using the buildin local scheduler. (qwinsta.exe + rwinsta.exe)

I'm just wondering, if there might be an approach to consolidate this, so that it can be done from one PC/Server, that's quering AD for all servers, then get a list for all RDP sessions of these servers, then reset (forced) all of them.

RDP sessions to workstations shall remain untouched.

To get all servers in AD is not an issue. But how to get the RDP sessions, and how to reset them using PowerShell?

get-QADComputer | ?{$_.OSName -match "server"}|ft name, osname -auto

Any suggestions appreciated.

I have been using the PSTerminalServices Module hosted here.

I think that is what you are looking for.

Thanks for your reply. Yes, this ....

[list]PS > Get-Command -Module PSTerminalServices

CommandType Name Definition

... looks like it's exactly what I was looking for.
